A revolution in games technology

Tired of having to buy powerful PCs or expensive games platforms to play the latest games? Wouldn't it be good to play on any device connected to the internet:PC, Mac or TV?  Well at the Games Developer Conference today (as reported on the BBC website), a totally new approach which exploits the latest broadband connectivity (there goes much of Ireland! oops!) Onlive have just previewed their streaming games system which they have been 'secretly' developing in partnership with many of the main games companies and which they intend to launch later in the year. It will do all the processing at their servers with streaming high-definition video to your local platform of choice, paid for on the basis of a monthly subscription.  For more info, view here.
