Onlive Running Splinter Cell Conviction: Whaddaya Know, It Works!

I’m sure a lot of you have heard about OnLive, the gaming service that streams games to you from computers much more powerful than yours. Lots of people – myself included – were skeptical about the quality of service that it could provide. Fortunately, Gamertell’s Jeremy Hill is currently trying out the service, and posted videos to share his experience. The bottom line? It’s not as good as having the game installed on your PC, but it is very playable.

The quality of the video is approximately the same as the screenshot you see above, but there are caveats of course, not least of which is the fact that video sites like YouTube compress any video that’s uploaded.

Surprisingly good right? And he was even playing via a wireless connection. According to Hill, he got “SD” quality video over his 3Mbps connection, but with a 4Mbps or 5MBps connection, you’re supposed to be able to stream games in “HD”.

It would’ve been better if Hill mentioned what his laptop’s specs were though. But overall, there seemed to be minimal lag and I think that’s the most crucial factor here. If you’re interested, you can check out OnLive’s website for more info; you can sign up on the site for a chance to win a one year free subscription.
