    Company Description of New Console

    Post by BadDaddy1 on Wed 15 Apr 2009, 12:55

    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 Macs.

    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.

    Onlive is a new Game console/server company.

    I say console/server, because although they are going to have a console, if ya got a computer, you can just get the software, and your in the same server as the console players!

    There will be no disks to buy nor will there be games to download, it's all taken care of in the server.

    They expect the console to sell for about the same price as the Wii, and the games should be much cheaper than buying from the store, as they have cut out the store profit, the other game makers (Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft) profit, and distribution costs.

    So this new set up potencially has the capability of bringing the console market and the PC market together under a common server, with (they claim) very little glitches or lag issues.

    I'm gonna get the software for one of the computers to see if it's all they said it is, if so, the wii will see limited play time as this system may allow the entire family to play at once!... Clan TM/BD.

    LOL with you guys, to cover a grid, ACW sniping, Mad and Big running & gunning, Zatch ambushing and me doing my thing... We could dominate this new console and be the clan to beat in the future.

    Cya
