Because it really amounts to little more than a conjob. Something where fools and their money will be parted because they don't know any better. They've made too many wild claims about how everything will just automagically happen and they can deal with any and all issues without breakintg a sweat. IF IT SOUNDS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT PROBABLY IS. That's the first rule of dectecting fraud. And maybe we don't want to see people get needlessly burned because of another snake-oil salesman trying to sell a miracle product that simply can't work. Either that or he's an alien life-form that's managed to change the laws of physics. You choose.
No one is losing a dime on this until it's officially released, which is exactly what I said in my post you quoted. There is absolutely no need for so much hostility when every single penny is being spent by OnLive themselves, even going through the beta this summer.
No, you're not pissed about a "conjob", you're pissed because that's what you and many others on this site are always like. OnLive has done absolutely everything that is possible for them to do at this point to make their case, without charging you or anyone else a dime for pre-release investement. They're not "conning" anyone here but themselves if this product doesn't work in a real-world scenario.
You made up your mind about this product long before they ever explained themselves in full, and the unending and overblown hostility of you and many other users here has absolute jack shit to do with worrying about others losing money, but rather you guys fearing that maybe, just maybe, you'll be proven drastically wrong.This comment was edited on Mar 25, 2009, 16:50.
