Windows 7: Tried Onlive? What was the Experience?

Tried Onlive? What was the Experience?

Have you tried Onlive? If so what was the experience like in your area? It is free to sign-up for and to play 30 minutes of almost all the games they currently offer.

In my area, or at least from my house, my experience has been excellent. Almost no lag or delay. I'm in Southern California, Riverside county. Lucky enough to have an Onlive datacenter only a few miles from here.

Oh, and I have a 10mbps Cable connection.

I haven't tried it. I just saw the commercial for it earlier today, and it got my interest. I am reading up on it now, seems to be a really cool service. I just wonder if it worth the $100 hardware. Looking further, Im actually considering getting it when tax time rolls around.

think maybe this will be the future of pc gaming? A cool concept, buy the game, and stream/play wherever you are (granted you bring the 'console' with you) hey, it just might give steam a run for it's money too....

I was part of the early release.... Unless you dont have a high/mid end pc dont waste your time.... its alot like steam but you rely on other peoples hardware...
Not to mention look into the guy who developed it... Almost everything he has invested in and created has failed.... I wouldnt pay into his latest scheme just buy the game.

Tried the free account thing. Registered and nothing popped up asking to be installed to play the games, and clicking "Play" just takes me to the account page. Was using Chrome, so tried registering another account in IE and still nothing.

Not sure what to tell you...Here is a direct link to the client app, however: http://www.onlive.com/download/client/Setup.exe

Strange. It's not downloading at all for me. I'll have a look around and see if I can find anything about what's up. Thanks for the link. I'd like to get it working, like the 30minute free play would be cool to have to just try games.

Last time I tried Onlive, I couldn't play a game for more than three minutes because of my connection.
