I been using this for about 3 months now, only doing game trials and it works very good, am with VM and get 30mb down and 3mb up.

I would like to try this with the game box, because that can then output 1080p res, even when you using it on PC you till have to take into acount your system specs, its not all just about having good internet speed. At the moment my PC not that good, am saving up for a gaming PC costing me £1000 so I will try again with that beast.

Why people pay that for a PC is that their are a million things that a PC can do what a PS3 can't do.

 

A PC is a proper multi purpose tool unlike the half arsed attempt from the PS3/360.

 

A true gamer will own all and play all and TBH as much as I love console gaming PC gaming is king as their is so much you can do what you can pnly dream off on PS3/360.

 

I think you need to open yourt eyes and see PS3, Sony and PSN is not the be all and end all of gaming!

 

 

My Laptop gives out better graphics with onlive than I have seen on PS3 but TBH I do not care I play games for the enjoyment which is why I still play old games!

 

 

You still have not come back with a decent reply to the ones that quoted you on you original Post!

 

Sound to me you feel threatend by this! Well the more fool you are!

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Gonna wait to see what the service is like in 3 months when the ISPs remove the service from the "Do not traffic shape" system. VM original agreed to not traffic shape BBC Iplayer only to Reverse that Buy adding AREA based Traffic management later to there T&C.

Uhh, only in hardware specifications. A PC doesn't have Sony's great library of exclusives. 

 

Also, please can we drop this rubbish about having to own all gaming systems to be a "true" gamer. I do, and I don't feel any "truer", whatever it is supposed to mean, than when I used to just game on one or two systems.

 

I just feel like I've wasted my money on a few systems because the two others (PS3, PC) meet 98% of the needs of the others, since the others lack a decent game library between them.

I have been playing OnLive as I brought Warhammer on it I must say Onlive is an impressive service and I do think that what OnLive is doing is what the future of gaming will become.

  A quick side note just so people know, you can use a PS3 controller with Onlive and heres how.

 

  1. Do a internet search for MotionJoy
  2. Download and install motionjoy on your PC
  3. connect your PS3 pad via USB
  4. load up motionjoy
  5. load the drivers in driver management in motionjoy
  6. once the controller is reconised select Xbox emulator from the radial buttons
  7. close motionjoy
  8. start onlive hey presto you can now use a PS3 pad for OnLive.

The thing is, if you're using achievements as a major selling point for you, you're doing it so wrong it's unbelievable.

I think Onlive has surprised a lot of people and it seems a few Playstation and XBOX fans are getting so defensive and saying it's going to kill gaming.

Yes all games on OnLive have keyboard and mouse support, you can use the whole service with keyboard and mouse instead of a pad.
