I watched this yesterday on Attack of the Show and wanted to blog about it but I really didn’t know much about it at the time to really blog about it. After looking at their website though I discovered that it’s a pretty cool service.
When you play video games how long do you play them before you stop playing it FOREVER? And how much do you want to kick yourself because you couldn’t afford to spend $80 on a new game every time one comes out that you want? Isn’t that just the most frustrating?
You could rent them with GameFly but then you have to wait for the next one to come in the mail 2 days after you’ve shipped out the previous one. OnLive is a GameFly killer!
You get the little OnLive box that is the size of your hand and plug it into your network. I don’t know if it has WiFi but if it’s anything like the Roku then you’re probably better off just plugging it into the router anyway. Start up your service and you are on your way to playing as many cool new video games as you like.
Here is that Gadget Pron video from Attack of the Show via Hulu:
Trust me, if I had $100 for the box, I would definitely buy this. There are so many games out there that I want to try but can’t because I just don’t have the money for the gaming system and even if i had the system, I still couldn’t afford the games. So this will be a great way for anyone to try out any game that is available to users to see if it’s worth the sometimes $80 cost of the game.
The game controller looks very sleek and shiny and Kevin said you’re better off using another game controller from another system and if the controller that comes with it sucks then great, do that if you have one. If you don’t then go to Game Stop and buy a refurbished one for an x-box or PS3 or whichever one is compatible.
They only give this a 3 out of 5 but considering it will probably save you thousands of dollars on games that you buy and never play again I’m going to give it a 5 out of 5 just for the money you will be saving.
