OnLive

Post by Platoon_Michael »

Any chance you guys at Matrix can get your games to be used with Onlive?
Be a nice way to see if the Close Combat Series could get an online boost if it was possible.

There is a thread at gamesquad forums about Onlive. Not sure it will be the future of gaming. Cloud computing is going to change things for sure.

I think this does wonders for people who can't keep up with the price of computers but yet want to play the high end games.

Price of computers? It is dropping all the time, you can get a reasonable computer for less than 1000 bucks now. They at one time ran over 2 k.
Favoritism is alive and well here.

Matrix games run fine even on older computers. Why the should join OnLive, which is just another DRM scheme? I doubt, that many people here would sign up for this service.

I wish my first few computers cost 2K (each), alas 4.1K, 3.5K and 3K was the ugly reality back in the old days.

Don't quite see how this is cheaper. You pay a purchase price for your game AND a monthly OnLive subscription fee (and the instant you stop paying that fee, your library vanishes)...just save that all up and buy a computer or a console.
