Did any one else get accepted into ONLIVE? Whats ONLIVE you ask? OnLive is launching the world's highest performance Games On Demand service, instantly delivering the latest high-end titles over home broadband Internet to the TV and entry-level PCs and Macintosh® computers. Founded by noted technology entrepreneur Steve Perlman (WebTV, QuickTime) and incubated within the Rearden media and technology incubator, OnLive spent seven years in stealth development before officially unveiling in March 2009. OnLive, together with its Mova subsidiary, lies directly at the nexus of several key trends, all of which are reshaping the way we think about and use digital media: * The shift to cloud computing, displacing the limitations, cost and complexity of local computing; * An explosion of consumer broadband connectivity, bringing fast bandwidth to the home; * Unprecedented innovation, creativity and expansion within the video game market. Pioneering the delivery of rich interactive media to the home, OnLive will change the way that entertainment applications are created, delivered and consumed.

I sure as hell hope this fails. This would mean death to modding and actually OWNING your games
I really don't know what to think of things like this, seems like it'll be taking away from the modding/customization community completely.
[QUOTE=ducky5;19040619]haha I can began using my ONLIVE acount starting at 4pm. its 3:14 for me![/QUOTE] Report back on what it's like and stuff please. Screens would be great as well.

[QUOTE=toxicpiano;19040736]Report back on what it's like and stuff please. Screens would be great as well.[/QUOTE] ok. But what about low end computers? this would make a whole door open for PC/MAC users.
I hope this exists, but as the PC equivalent of renting games, not the replacement to buying them.
