Ok, I hope this is no April Fool’s joke. OnLive is an on-demand video gaming service via video streaming. Ingenious! This is really just too cool! Powerful server clouds run the games and you can play on simple & cheap hardware over the internet. IMHO a revolution.

The only problem that I see is really the broadband internet connection for the users – it’s simply not fast enough in my opinion – the lag comes from the backbones sometimes and very often internet providers screw up.

Watch the video – it’s long but it’s worth it http://gdc.gamespot.com/video/6206692/
