Even at those distances input lag would be horrible. Please complain when a cheaper monitor gives them few nanoseconds of input lag.

input lag with network latency simply doesn't make that possible.

Obviously it would depend upon what settings are used, but I do remember taking raw video from fraps and converting it into mpeg4 and saving about 100x the space.
great, video compression, lets add even more lag while we are at it.

Compression needs time, how they wan't to convert it in real time?

I want this one to fail too. Consoles are monopolised, PC is a little too but this looks like one big monopol.

People should simply deny this by not using any type of cloud computing and as far i can see cloud computing is TOTAL FAILURE.

I personally think this is aimed more towards people who have no idea what a gpu is and cannot afford consoles with many games.

Think about it..all they need is a very good internet connection and the onlive hardware and theyre ready to go...renting games through this system may be very appealing to them..

But for me im gonna enjoy super high resolution gaming with no worry about lag in single player on my uber powerfull pc and have a nice games collection i can keep forever.

Playing the devils advocate here....why are so many of you turned off from the fact you may not have to spend hundreds on a gaming PC in the future? If this thing pans out it may be a major step in PC gaming.

because they are old gits and hate everything that changes things that they use every day.
People are like that. Dont want to embrace new technology and solutions. They stuck in their old ways and wont budge even if a truck was going to drive over them.

Because many of the reasons why we got into PC gaming in first place (moddability, tweaking, user-created content), will not be available on this platform due to the fact that you don't actually have the game data on your computer, and if publishers started releasing games only through remote content delivery platforms like these, it will completely destroy the mod scene.

Also, building and upgrading high end PC's is a hobby for many of us, so we enjoy doing that sort of thing. We also like owning many of our games, so in the future we can pop them in and play without needing to worry about subscriptions and things like server maintenance, etc (although this concept of game ownership is already being destroyed by invasive DRM right now).

Mods are (together with mouse & keyboard) the strongest reason why I spend 95% of my gaming time in a PC
