    Onlive On PS3

    As most of you know, i made a video about "Onlive" on my Tablet, you can read about it here



    Recently the Onlive team have said that they would be happy for the service to run on the PS3 or Xbox 360, not sure they would go for it as it would probably be a lose of revenue for them.

    But the Onlive have also stated that they had Onlive running on the PS3 before Sony removed OtherOS:
    “It was really easy for us to get a client installed and running on it,” said OnLive UK General Manager, Bruce Grove. “We never released it, but it was kicking around in our building at the time just so we could prove to ourselves we could do this and make this kind of thing happen.”
    You can read the full story here:

    Interesting.

    I would think that would be a conflict of interest, also. Sort of like, McDonalds selling Whoppers..

    Interesting, Onlive at first it seemed like a lot of promises and hype which would never be fulfilled, seemingly becoming a viable alternative.

    I doubt Sony or Microsoft would ever go for it, on PS3/360 but it is interesting to say the least.

    Sounds nice and intresting as a story, but I completelly dissagree with the idea of cloud gaming, I find it unethical and a very easy way of companies circumventing your rights.
    It's in nature as wrong as Sony's removal of OtherOS.
    Glad that Sony didn't pick it, I mean, we already have to face one criminal (Sony), we don't need 2 criminals in the scene...

    You should also know that Broadband internet is not of high quality in all of the world. When my dad told me about that idea in 1997 about running apps from the internet, when we barely had 28.8kbps dial up conn, it seemed like sci-fi. Today its somewhat possible, tough in my country, the average of internet bandwidth is cca 2mbit, and i have 4mbit. Ive tried onlive, but the ping was about 1-2sec, which renders it impossible to enjoy gaming. It MUST be an ALTERNATIVE, not a rule. However, playing games on tablet pcs, which will never be as strong as pc/console, is a great thing.

    And, also, PS or XBOX will, in my opinion, never have onlive, but i read something about nextgen xbox support of cloud gaming, and im sure $ony will have its counterpart. As i said i hope it would only ever be just an alternative.
