If you don't know about the Onlive game service that launched 10 days ago, check it out at:
Or look it up at Youtube and check out some of the reviews and intros to this product. It is VERY cool and should change the face of PC and Console gaming.
Basically, you either download the small Onlive app to your PC or you get a mini-console for the TV. Like other online game providers you can purchase the game there but there is a significant difference. You never download the game, nor do you have to have a system that can support it. The entire game is played in the cloud (network) of Onlive servers. You don't need a fancy video card or sound card just a good internet connection.
I became a founding member and have tried it out. IT WORKS and I am totally amazed by the technology. There is also an arena where you can watch other players play the games in real time. There is absolutely no lag for me at all and it feels like I am playing the game on the highest settings on my PC.
Take a look at the technology and let your imagination run on how this can apply to MMO to stop latency and overpopulation of servers, etc.
I also saw a tech demo where they played Borderlands through Onlive on an IPAD with no problems at atll at E3. It is very cool. I would love to play AOC, or some of the awesome new upcoming MMOs like Rifts on an Ipad and have it look and play well.
