The OnLive Public Beta has been announced, and it will be starting some time soon. For those of you unfamiliar with what OnLive is, it is a digital service that will allow you to play some of the most technically demanding games on a sub par computer. Like playing Crysis, max settings, on a weak computer, basically. It sounds like it will be a revolutionary service, if it does indeed succeed at it’s goal.
For those of you who signed up for the beta, check your email because you may be chosen to actually participate. As shown on the official OnLive blog, the beta sessions will start soon, and those chosen will be emailed and you’ll take a more indepth test of your networking capabilities. Then you, along with others, will be able to play and enjoy this service. The purpose of the beta test is to see how OnLive will do in real world situations, as well as spotting any major bugs that may need fixing.
To sign up for the OnLive Beta, all you need to do is provide some basic information about your internet service provider. You also need to be over the age of 18. People are currently expecting a lag fest, I’m hoping for the best to be honest. I want to be able to play graphic intesive games on my weak little labtop. I don’t know what games will be available on the OnLive service for the public beta, but they should definitely include Crysis in there, as it’s pretty obvious that it’s one of the most intensive games available for the pc currently. For those of you who are lucky enough to enter the beta, you should post about your experiences and thoughts on the service, I’m sure a lot of people are dying to know how the OnLive Beta will go.
