QWERTY: OnLive – I Call Bulls**t

Disclaimer: QWERTY’s opinions are not mine nor the site’s. The psudonym QWERTY is used to protect the innocent.

You’re promising a whole new world. OnLive is the console killer. It will change the industry and make having to upgrade obsolete. I call bulls**t.

What the hell do you think you are telling me? I have to buy a new console?

It’s not a console? Heh, don’t kid yourself. It is a new console. You want to play a game you have to buy this machine from them. You have to use their machine. It’s a console. So it’s not your traditional disc based system. Doesn’t matter. It’s a company machine that will only play its own formatted games.

So I can’t play my games if I don’t have internet? Oh and it has to be a broadband connection or it’s a no go.

This is your console killer, something that only works half the time? This is a technology device meant to show off supposed advances in chips and wires and ideas and stuff.

There is a reason this was debuted at GDC and not E3 or CES. Oh look at me, I have cloud processing. Oh look at me, I can play Crysis on a crappy PC. Oh look at me, my technology is impressive, but honestly do I really have to care? We shouldn’t because it’s the same as a 360 or Playstation. Just another machine to play games in an already crowded market.
