According to VoodooExtreme, you can now preorder DX:HR for OnLive (at RRP prices). Does anyone actually use this thing?
More information.

I've got it but I can't use it, even if I wanted to. My cable connection just isn't fast enough. And by fast I mean ping times, not download speed. Google Fiber is coming around soon, though….

If you've got a strong connection, OnLive would be a pretty good alternative to buying a whole new PC. Especially if you don't want to learn the ins and outs of the latest technology.

The video game industry is battling the past and has to find ways to make the past less affordable as it would through depreciation.

Well well well - the cable company called me up and told me my modem was going to be obsolete in a couple of weeks. Hmph. The thing wasn't even 10 years old yet. Not quite anyway.

I got my new one today. OnLive now works great! I had quite a bit of fun just poking around the "brag clips" and watching some crazy Just Cause 2 clips. It should be a great place to try games out, too. Buying games, though… not a chance.

No idea what it is with the Luddite reaction around here. Have you folks even tried it?

Have I tried it I dont want to the bandwidth usage is one turn off for me thanks to internet caps. The second reason is I dont want to just rent my games. Third reason I spend money on hardware and want to use it. Does that answer your question.
