Onlive – Play games online on demand anytime, anyplace !!

PC News

Onlive-01

What would you say, if someone told you you could play the latest video games on demand, anytime and possibly anywhere. Games like GRID, BIOSHOCK, TOMB RAIDER to name just a few, AND the clincher would be that you didn’t even need a new generation console to play them. 

You’d think… Yeah Right your pulling my leg… But then it gets better.  With a Internet connect and a little box called the ONLIVE MicroConsole you could connect online, select the game you wanted to play and go for it, even meet up with friends online and play with them. 

This all sound too good to be true.. its not possible you think.  Well think again.  This service is very much true and it’s going to be making its way to us very soon.  Onlive is has the backing of some pretty big players behind it.  The likes of :

EA, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Brothers Games, Eidos, Atari, Codemasters, EPIC Games, THQ, 2D Boy and nVidia

With these big boys behind Onlive we can expect to see Onlive smashing its way into your living room tv, PC, MAC, and EVEN portable device like the iPhone. 

If you want to see more and read more about Onlive and even be a part of the BETA testing head on over to the Onlive Official Website for more information.  Watch the trailer they have on the main page it’s very cool.

Check it out here.   Now let us know what you think of this as I’m very interested in what the gamers of the future have to say about Onlive.

    I’m not so sure if this is going to be successful, there are just too many unknowns at this point. Eurogamer did a great break down of all the relevant factors back when the technology was announced, which is worth reading ( http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/gdc-why-onlive-cant-possibly-work-article ). If they can pull it off then it’s going to be incredible and a important step for games.
