The OnLive® Game Service is a revolutionary, on-demand video game platform capable of delivering the latest and most advanced games instantly over a broadband connection on virtually any PC or Mac®, or on an HDTV, via OnLive’s MicroConsole™ TV Adapter. The OnLive Game Service enables an entirely new way to discover, explore, purchase and experience the hottest video games from the world’s leading publishers.
OnLive is a very different game platform from anything that has existed before, and it uses the Internet and computers in a very different way than they have been used before.
Up until now you could only access these features on a wired connection but now OnLive has begun a Wi-Fi Beta for its service that will now open up wireless connectivity to your options for connecting to the game servers.
You can read more about this beta and service at the Onlive Blog – Wi-Fi and Netbook Update.
Do you use this service? I would be interested in hearing about your experience with it.
