Nice move!
I sincerely hope the service improves and grows, as it's definitely a next gen thing.
Imagine if they could emulate through iPhone or Android?
There's no end to the possibilities.
Stream Doom to your Android, stream Crysis to the iPhone.
It's just an image buffer issue and they're overcoming these things fast.

The future is now
I hope it does not. Things like this can drive gaming and innovation into the ground.

Limited hardware. Crappy resolutions. Lack of tweaking and modding. It is everything that will cause the death of any decent gaming and take the control over what we play and how we play it out of our hands.

Yes please. Let this die, die, die, die, die.

This will turn gaming into software as a service whether it's single player or multi player.

What little rights we have left at this point as gamers will be gone when things like OnLive become prevalent.

Did they ever get rid of the stupid subscription? It may have a chance then.

The thing is that those devices will probably keep pace with this kind of technology. While, I doubt iPhone could play Crysis, I've seen it render some amazing 3D, and my Android can play Quake 2 no problem. I've used OnLive, and it is better than I thought it would be, but the pricing is absolutely insane, and at this point has no real advantages for me. I would imagine that when mobile broadband is fast enough for this service to even function, the phones will already be capable of running the games on their own.

It's a nice idea - though I expect this will be the pioneering business that fails so that future versions can learn its lessons and succeed when the infrastructure is ready.
