[IMG]http://www.gaikai.com/images/bg_header.png?1292277170[/IMG] So now you are able to play games in your browser, how fucking late? No, this is not the normal games, this is games like sims 3, mass effect 2 and fucking dead space 2. Link for the article: [URL]http://www.dperry.com/archives/news/dp_blog/gaikai_is_live/[/URL] [B]Gamelist: [/B] Spore: [URL="http://www.beta.gaikai.com/beta/spore/RBDFHrrK5rK8597H27HjyD03013"]CLICK HERE[/URL] Sims 3 demo: [URL]http://www.thesims3.com/trial[/URL] Dead Space 2 (after a short survey): [URL]https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/F2QFNY7[/URL] Second Life here: [URL="http://maps.secondlife.com/"]http://maps.secondlife.com/ [/URL] (Just wait and if your connection quality to our Server is fast enough, a pop-up will appear, you will need to enter a email (Fake is fine)) Mass Effect 2: [URL]http://www.gaikai.com/[/URL] (Just wait and if your connection quality to our Server is fast enough, one of several pop-up designs will appear.) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [B]PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS ONLY WORKS FOR A FEW PEOPLE, SINCE YOU NEED TO BE CONFIRMED AS A GOOD CONNECTION! I LIVE IN DENMARK AND IT WORKS FINE FOR ME. You need Java and Flash for this to work. [/B]-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [B] FAQS: [/B] [B] I have an awesome Internet connection. Shouldn't I be able to play? [/B] Your bandwidth is not the only thing that determines whether you can play. Your proximity to one of our data centers is also crucial for ensuring a great, low-latency gaming experience. If you have a good connection, but you're too far from our servers, then you may not be able to play right now. [B] If I'm too far from Gaikai's servers, will I ever be able to play? [/B] Quite possibly, yes. Gaikai's network is rapidly expanding to new locations, both in the United States and abroad. As more data centers come online, more users will be able to play. In fact, you not being able to play now tells us that we need to consider adding servers in your area. If you really want to be able to play, tell your friends to sign up for Gaikai's beta. The more people from your area who are unable to connect, the more likely we are to add servers near you! [B] When will Gaikai be able to offer games to everyone, everywhere? [/B] Gaikai's business model may be different than what you'd expect. We're not trying to offer a subscription-based service, so there's no expectation that everyone will be able to play from day one. Instead, we're powering demos of games on publisher, retailer, and associate sites. These demos will only be offered to users who meet the standards required for an awesome gaming experience. Users who don't meet these standards will never know they missed anything ... but they will help us understand where we need to add servers next. Over time, we'll be able to serve more and more demos to more and more users, across the world. [B] I was able to play earlier, and now I can't. What happened? [/B] Gaikai tests a complicated mix of criteria when determining whether a user can play a game. Some of these criteria are fixed, but others fluctuate depending on the state of the Internet, our server capacity, and what's happening on your computer and Internet connection. For example, if you're running other applications such as BitTorrent, Hulu, or Netflix, then you may be falling below our bandwidth threshold due to the other apps' heavy bandwidth consumption. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [B] Extra stuff about this: [/B] Gaikai is a cloud-based gaming technology that allows users to play major PC and console games like Call Of Duty or World Of Warcraft instantly, with one click. No download or install required. This technology powers a next-generation video game advertising network that drives sales for video game publishers, developers, retailers, and affiliates via online demos of games and software applications. Users are presented with an offer to try the game or app before buying it, therefore giving them hands-on experience with the product right at the point-of-sale. Gaikai is driven by a simple mission: make as many games available to as many people on as many devices as possible, easily and instantly. [LIST] [*]Gaikai requires nothing more than a standard web browser with ubiquitous plugins like Flash or Java [*]Gaikai requires no special hardware or extra computing power. Rather, it can run premium 3D games on something as lightweight as a netbook or smartphone. [*]There's nothing to download or install -- games are instantly playable with a single click [/LIST] Gaikai is currently in [B]closed beta[/B]. If you're interested in receiving a beta invite, [URL="http://www.gaikai.com/about"]click here[/URL] to sign up.

I tried out The Sims 3 for a moment and was genuinely surprised. It looks like the full, high quality game. Not much use to people with good computers (Most of FP), but pretty cool. P.S. Don't use "Epic", ever. Also you act as if Second Life isn't already free and a small download.
Fucking asshole won't accept me.

'Don't be sad'
The thread title made me think I could play Gears of War and Unreal Tournament in my browser
Effin clouds are taking over the world...*runs to shelter*
[QUOTE=cheesedelux;28344922]P.S. Don't use "Epic", ever.[/QUOTE] [img]http://www.at-mix.de/images/glossar/epic-games-logo.jpg[/img] I was already hoping for Unreal Tournament etc.
Sounds cool if it would work for me.

"Don't be sad" Really now? [img]http://www.speedtest.net/result/1178193607.png[/img]
Epic made me think it was just games using the unreal 3 engine

There's not enough people around where you live on this forum for this to be relevant :colbert:
wow this is actually legit. I'm genuinely surprised
[QUOTE=Meller Yeller;28345285]There's not enough people around where you live on this forum for this to be relevant :colbert:[/QUOTE] Because this only works for people in Denmark.... [B]NO. It works for quite alot of people. Also, even i can't play spore right now, i could before. I think they are getting overload [/B]
Even though the resolutions a bit iffy Im definetly interested, considering there absolutley no way my laptop could run Dead space 2 at the quality it did on there.
I don't like playing anything in my Browser, I like having the files on my HD.

Hmm, tried spore and got accepted. Gonna try it.
used in google chrome i'm in fuck yeah! 10mb/s internet in bournemouth
it's onlive but with better games and the ability to play in browser which means onlive has no reason to exist
i'm in cue for ME2 and what the hell are these noises playing :raise:
I tried it with deadspace 2, it's not too bad but I'd rather just play the actual game on my computer so there's no latency (and bigger resolution)
some guy is going on about looking to the stars and I'm in queue something weird here
Looks nice. It also removes the need to install a demo before you can try it.
This is interesting, it could effectively be the future of gaming.
Latency is a bit too much for me, that and the fact that my computer is good enough to run these games anyway. Must be great for laptops though.
Thread is now better looking, and with screenshots! I would also love if anyone would digg this or reddit it. Spread the word so the company that made this can be known.
