It works, too, and we’re impressed at what it has to offer.
CompatabilityOnLive isn’t just suited to one type of gaming platform. Instead, you’ll be able to sign up whether you have a tablet, a PC or a Mac. It’s also available for mobile devices, proving one of the most versatile gaming solutions around.
Share!OnLive isn’t just about playing either. You’ll also be able to join in the fun from thousands of other users, with the ability to watch games from around the world that are already in action.
No computer? Play using your TV!You don’t even have to own a PC or Mac to play games using OnLive. Instead, you’ll be able to use the OnLive Micro Console – a tiny device that’s actually smaller than a gaming controller – along with your TV, to gain access to the latest games, including DiRT 3 and Batman: Arkham City.
CheapOnLive is a great budget solution.
For just £6.99 per month, you’ll have unlimited access to all of the service’s games, with some excellent titles on offer. From Lara Croft, to Lego Harry Potter, to Batman: Arkham City, there’s a lot to like about OnLive.
It’s all onlineAs the name suggests, OnLive is gaming that’s based online. You’ll stream the games, so there’s no need for powerful or expensive hardware. We found that it could be slow at times, but when it does work, it’s genuinely revolutionary.
