News Comments > OnLive Claims Cloud Gaming Patent

So now, we finally know what OnLive is all about: It's not about making money with an amazing online service but to sack any existing or upcoming similiar service provider and to enjoy a nice life from all this royalities...

Good job Perlman!

Give me a solid reason APART from supporting the developers (which I mentioned above already) why I should buy a digital version while I would experience/get the exact same thing through pirating it.

Didn't know you get free support in case of problems if you pirate a game, I always though this was limited to those who actually buy games...

Only a few years ago, I used to pirate a lot of games but I completely stopped when Steam was born. Pirating is useless now because you get all the games you want for amazing prices, don't have to worry about backing them up or checking if they are up to date; they just work using most of the time no copy-protection at all and the best of all, you support the developers!

I rarely pay more than 20-25 bucks for a game nowadays, even for big AAA products, you just have to wait 2-3 months.

The service Steam offers is just amazing, pirating is left to guys which either are to poor to buy the games or just like to be parasites of the modern society.

Wish I could say the same about movies...

I guess this only includes again retail sales and not the digital distribution ones?

2. Android-based smartphone shipments leapfrog Apple's iPhone Aug 14, 2010, 09:37 vacs
 
Go Android go!

In a few months Android smartphones will overtake Blackberries and it's only a question of time until Symbian goes down the drain.


Just wondering where Windows 7 Phones will fit in...

A day later, I'm still no able to update my servers (expecially install the new TF2 update) because of course, Steam servers are too busy.

Nice try Valve testing your capacity. Next time please allow again preloads, thx

Given how common preloads are, it seems more likely to me that Valve is using this release as a way to test their infrastructure.

Possibly, but they failed dramatically. My download is stuck at 2% and my Source dedicated server cannot be restarted because the Steam servers are too busy.

oh well, I'm going to try restarting them tomorrow morning.

That made me an instant Tim Schafer fan.

If you really care of video games and accept it as an art form like movies or paintings, then it's impossible NOT to be a fan of Tim Schafer.

I thought Apple was a member of the blu-ray consortium. Has that changed?

no, they still are but Steve found out that he can make more money by selling movies over itunes than by paying licence fees for every blu-ray drive and every software player he bundles with Macs.

So why has the 2nd generation been called "3G" then? It's clear that Apple wants to confuse the people by making them believe it offers festures which are in fact not included.

False marketing at it's best and yet nobody can do anything against it, typical Apple.

Why do they keep calling it "iPhone 4G"? It's a 3G device! Apple is as always at least 6 months behind.

and when did they announce that Dead Space 2 would come to the PC? I thought they didn't want to release it on the PC because of too much "piracy"...

I agree -- if this is not newsworthy, it's my fault for posting it, not George's for saying it.

and hereby I confirm that this is certainly newsworthy because I really like to be kept informed about all the IW departures and I don't have the time to look it up by myself.

News like this is essentially the reason why I still read Blue's News regularly ever since it was created. Actually there is no other website (on any other subject) which I have been reading as long as BN because for some strange reason, this site is the only one which is posting the "interesting" gaming news and not bloated. I thank Blue for this

I thought the demo was real fun and the full game should be one those rare games really justifying a 50$ price tag... disappointing
