weak, weak, WEAKSAUCE

As if the input lag from using an LCD fucking monitor isn't enough - now I have to wait for my input to be sent to the server, processed, sent back and THEN I see it?

Get the fuck out of here. Might be useful for playing final ry 69, but forget about anything requiring, you know, hand-eye co-ordination. I'll check back in 10 years though.

Its all and hype, and anyone who still believes gaming company claims before an actual product is seen is retarded.

People bitch about the lag of an LCD monitor vs a CRT, you honestly think they're going to accept the lag of network rendering? lol.

I see a lot of whining in this thread. Most of said whining is apparently about issues discussed in detail in the video - I agree that the video was worth watching.

Personally, I remain mildly skeptical to the likelihood of it being the "next big thing," but it sure looks like this guy's got the brain trust and backing to make it happen - far more so than the various disasters mentioned already. This isn't a group of nobodies behind this project. Does that guarantee success? Not a chance in hell. But it does mean it has a fighting chance of working, instead of a less-than-zero chance.

I hit the beta sign-up. I would love to see whether this will work in practical application, and to what degree of success.

People still bitch about LCD "lag"?

I saw mad ghosting in older ones... say pre-2004 (arbitrary). The model I have now (Dell 2009W) shows no ghosting, amazing color accuracy, and watching it for hours is much less of an eye strain that any CRT ever was. People hate change.

Unfortunately the video is nothing but a sales pitch, so automatically you have to discount 80% of what the guy says, and as a few people have pointed out, another 20% of it is just outright lies.

Laughably, yes. Hardcore FPS gamers are the $800-wooden-receiver-knob-buying retards of the gaming world.

I really want to believe in their technology. I do think this is a potential reality, even if it wouldn't work quite as well as they claim.

However, I retain my skepticism in that I'm not convinced how running the service will be in any way financially viable. I wonder how they intend to pay for all of this, who is picking up the tab and how big is it?

I am a *little* concerned that Mr Perlman might find himself assassinated or wake up with his favorite horses head severed and under his bed sheets. nobody will ever have any reason to invest in newer hardware... damn.

$40/month*12months = $490, easily enough money to buy a new system or put some beefy upgrades into a computer. I know you pulled that number out of your ass, but I'm just saying that if the subscription costs were that high the entire thing would fail.

Consider this though... Wouldn't multiplayer games be near lag-free? I know I'd value my copy of SF4 a lot more if I could actually play it lag free against online opponents.

Your catalog of games is unlimited and ever growing at no additional cost...

I mean... this is simple.

I can't use myself as an analogy because I'm not a huge gamer. My friend is though. He probably buys two games a month, right as they come out, $60/pop, since the PS3 dropped.

So what, 500+tax for the console, $80 for his extra dualshock that he never uses, (and I'm counting guitar hero and rock band as two games each both in terms of played time and cost..and i'm not counting the crazy guitars he has )

So that's 500+80+~2100 for all those games assuming he bought two a month since (january 2008, rounded up to 08). Plus or minus a few hundred for months where he wasn't so into it. AND I'm pretending he doesn't also own a Wii and a bunch of games and stupid accessories.

$2680.

Enough for five years of OnLive at 40/mo. He could have been playing every single game ever fucking made either for 10 minutes of "shit this sucks" or one game over two weeks worth of daily 10 hour marathons like he pulled with Dragon Age.

You will have to pay for games IN ADDITION to monthly subs.

what.

deals' off.

Mr Perlman can go fuck himself, I hope tech bubbles again and bursts, he dies alone in a homeless shelter.

Or maybe some kind of second coming of Y2K totally fucks up the internets and kills his specific brand of streaming.

I dont know where I came up with "free games" from... I guess I just assumed as much because you're paying a subscription...I think I associated it with Netflix... unlimited movies for a flat fee...know what i mean.
