This quite possibly could be the future of gaming consoles. Meet the upcoming ‘On Live‘ device set to launch in the winter of 2009. The On Live gaming system takes gaming to a whole new level, by allowing users to play video games which are streamed online. This new concept would elminate ever having to buy new video games or new controllers for every system upgrade because all of the games are dealt online. The only downer that could come of this new invention is from having a bad internet connection. In order for the games to run smoothly, make sure you have a connection of 2 mbps or greater.
Costs have not yet been determined but they are expected to be less than $250 for the console and have a tiered monthly pricing scale. This new method sounds like having a subscription to GameFly, without having to wait for games to come in the mail. On Live sounds promising and should do well for a release in winter, just in time for Christmas.
