Will OnLive Cloud Gaming Kill Consoles?

In my opinion NO, at least not in the short run.  Gaming consoles have always been and will always be a part of my life. But what about my childrens life?  With the announced release of the OnLive service on June 17th, fans are quickly signing up for the “Free for a Year” offer that OnLive is promoting.  Thanks to a partnership with AT&T fans sign-up and are then randomly picked to participate in the cloud service with a second year option at a rate of $4.95/mo. I’m pretty sure this will drive a ton of people to their FREE cloud gaming platform.

Lusi Sandoval reports “The service is already touting games like Dragon’s Age Online, Assassin’s Creed, and Batman Arkham Asylum amongst other first rate titles. The service itself will do a system test to ensure that the games will run on a user’s system, but no longer do you have to own a Window’s machine in order to play the latest games. A service like OnLive could be a Mac owners dream since games are run inside a browser as opposed to being dependent on the type of machine you have.”

I guess we’ll have to see right?

    I thank that this new gaming will totally kill the console. Companies like Nintendo would be wise to build a totally online platform and learn from these guys. These guys will take a company like that down. No one wants to go out and buy a console. Just upgrade your computer and now you have an advantage over the next guy. Online is where this world is headed.
