OnLive is a cool concept of cloud-gaming and microconsoleing. In essence, you only have the controll and picture at your end. The game, computing power and storage are somewhere on the Internet, a long way from you. It would be fun to try this in practice.

CEO Steve Perlman held a presentation of OnLive at Columbia University. You can watch the video, which I found on Engadget.net, bellow.

Filed under: GDC — Tags: , , , , — technofranki @ 20:37

At GDC’09 the new gaming evniroment OnLive was announced. The concept is that you the game to the OnLive hardware or PC/Mac. Well, it’s actually only the picture/video is streamed, since all the calculations and the real gaminghardware is somewhere else. If you have a broadband connection you get the games in 720p, and if your internet connection is slow, you get SD picture quality. Just like Netflix, but on-demand gaming, micro-console.

For a good walkthrough of everything, take a look at Gamespot.com, they have it well covered.
