OnLive demos streaming game service, movies on iPad

invisibleSHIELD case for iPad“OnLive at the D8 conference demoed its streaming game service running on the iPad,” Electronista reports.

“The remote play interface works “great” on an iPad and was shown running the action RPG Borderlands where many of the PCs at the conference wouldn’t have the power to run it properly,” Electronista reports. “Videos also work properly, and a Harry Potter movie clip played without lag between the movie and its audio.”

Electronista reports, “The servers running the service should be active within about two weeks and will cost $15 per month for the base subscription. At least some games will carry an extra fee.

  1. “Another step in the evolution of iPad functionality. Another nail in the coffins of would-be competitors.”

    this technology will likely work with other tablets as well as netbooks. That is what is great about OnLive. It allows games to play on anything with a screen and a net connection.

  2. I’m a little perturbed about AT&T;too.

    And I’m not buying their spin.

    If it was truly to make data more affordable, they would offer the new plans in addition to the unlimited plan, not in place of it.

    I still have the original iPhone, and I plan to upgrade to the next model when it becomes available.

    I wonder if they’ll let me upgrade, and stay unlimited.

    I know they are allowing 3G users to do so, but what happens to those of us with unlimited plans who want to upgrade to 3G?

  3. Not really on topic, but couldn’t help myself — go to and watch the “D8 Video: The Dell Streak Mini-Tablet”. Stupidity is like entropy, it never goes down.

  4. damn… thats a bit steep… atleast make it more competitive like $50 a year or something equivalent to xbox live pricing… especially since its a mobile device.. not some huge data hogging platform system.
