New OnLive pics unveiled

Could be interesting if Google stepped, took this over and threw some money at it. At the moment I think it's a few years too early.

These are some nice renders. Congratulations, OnLive!

But more importantly, tell me, how's this system going to work on today's ADSL connections?

The controller looks just like a 3rd party Xbox 360 controller (which imo isn't a bad thing), though I'm not too keen on the buttons being labelled as "live".

what a fugly remote, looks like cheap plastic version of 360 controller, i hope they wont realease the controller with the same material,
The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list.

With today's connections, I just can't see how this is going to work. Especially over a large area. Nice idea, but as Voodoo said, a few years too early. Still, important to get the ball rolling I suppose.

Does technology have to fail before it becomes good? This is the first cloud-based console and im not sure it will revolutionise games. Did the first-ever MP3 players revolutionse music? i dont think so..
Also, the controller is horrific. One of the main ways this would work is if their was peripheral intergration across the board of the consoles. (wont ever happen though)
Its ahead of its time

Of course they didn't, but they allowed people to improve on them and keep going forward. With technology nowadays, first generation stuff is almost always buggy and flawed. This does look like it's going to be pretty bad, but it's got to start somewhere.

As interesting as pictures of the system may be and as important as game images are it's all pointless if we don't know how much this is going to cost. As this isn't just a straight forward new console pricing is important.

The lost opportunity for second-hand games has to mean it's the cheapest form of gaming, in theory! If it's the same price as console gaming I can't say there's any motivation to change. The lack of details make me a little suspicious.

Hmm, the controller looks terrible, and the technology isn't ready yet. Count me in!

if this is going to support all the latest AAA titles or whatever, it also needs to support both the PS3 and Xbox controllers.

Also is the US interweb infrastructure already in place for this type of thing. I always saw this type of thing to be best trialed in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong etc.

Well, seeing as 360 controllers are compatible with PCs and this thing appears to have a couple of USB ports, I imagine there'll be a way of using them. Don't know as much about PS3 controllers, but there will be some clever sausage out there who can make it work, I'm sure.
