OnLive gets early demos and new games

Since the launch on OnLive back in September the lack of new games on the cloud-based platform has been disappointing, but over the past fortnight early adopters to the videogame streaming service finally have reason to be upbeat.

Alongside the 30 minute demo of Batman: Arkham City, which swiftly became the most trialed game on the platform, players have been treated to the first look at Lord Of The Rings: War in the North, also available to buy shortly. Alongside the two demos, land three new titles - THQ’s Saint’s Row: The Third, LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 and LA Noire: The Complete Edition, all available to purchase now via the OnLive store.

I agree with all of those points. But we also know that speed of delivery plays a big part in any type of marketing, gaming or otherwise. Cloud gaming offers (technically) instant access to any game, thats something that could push it into the mainstream. Along with the need for no packaging. I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

I'm not surprised to see this sort of thing coming to TVs but the concept of cloud gaming doens't sit well with me. I like having the physical media and I like being able to still play in the event of a provider outage. Further to that point, most providers, at least here in Canada, heavily cap their users and streaming HD videogames sure as hell isn't going to do their(users) caps any favors.
