I heard about this sometime ago an thought to share it.
This service is coming to Europe so most of you guys will be able to test it.

Hmm, I've heard about this and have to say I'm not convinced yet! But I guess we'll see how it turns out Smile It's a nice idea at least.

I am also not convinced, the idea is simple but executing it is extremely hard, specially with different internet providers, internet speeds and subscriptions, but the most obstacle is money, this will cost a fortune to do, and I don't think it will get en enough money to cover its costs, and as we all know no one will keep funding it if it doesn't start making money. Of course I am talking about it when they start doing it Worldwide.

That's another good point. Here in Finland the situation with Internet is better than in many other places I'd think, but still far from optimal. The most popular form of Internet access at the moment is mobile broadband, usually 1Mb/s one. Needless to say that's not really good even for today's online games, let alone something like that. The government has this grand plan to get 99% of population 100Mb/s fiber optic broadband by year 2015 or something like that, but my expectations of that succeeding are not very high...

I've read what people are saying about it, most are not satisfied with its result, ping is higher than what was promised, and you need to be within range (1600 km) of the datacenter to be able to use it, and ping was high within that range.w

I've actually heard about this about 2 years ago. Funny story, I was talking to my friend and said "Hey, I have an idea: What if there was a company that provided games installed on their high-end pc's and would just send the users a video stream of what happens based on their inputs?". He told me there was OnLive. Oh well, I guess I wasn't quick enough with my idea Very Happy

So really, I looked into it back then, and it seems they've (of course) thought about these issues like connection quality and speed...if I remember correctly, they developed a new smaller compression for that, or something...whatever, however well it's working now, I think this is a pretty important step for gaming, technology is going to get better and will make things like that work more flawlessly. I'm eager to see how that whole thing developes.

Has anybody actually tried the 30 minute game trails yet?

I have tried one or two.  so far I am largely impressed with the result. there are a few lags here and there but nothing that i dont think couldnt be eradicated before it goes large scale and live.
