Progress at OnLive

OnLive, the revolutionary cloud gaming service where you play games via video-streaming on remote servers is making progress!

Meanwhile they partnered with AT&T and are opening their service for a kind of public beta program. It seems that you can already sign up if you are an US citizen as the sing up form shows US ISPs – not sure if EU subscribers are allowed but I guess not.

“Welcome to the OnLive Founding Members Program presented by AT&T. Subject to availability, Founding Members will be selected from this Waiting List on a first-come, first-serve basis starting June 17th, 2010. Limited-time, limited-availability offer.”

OnLive – the revolution in video gaming


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
