OnLive is one of the coolest things coming to Android. They’ve teamed up with HTC to bring the video games on-demand service to the Flyer and future tablets and, to be honest, it has us intrigued. Very intrigued. Unfortunately, they showed up to E3 without a functional demo, but Chris takes a quick look at the nice-looking controller and the wireless interface that you’ll use to game on the tablet.
They did have a demo of their current standalone units on the big screen and the iPad, and we expect the Android experience to be very similar. With OnLive, you can stream games that your tablet isn’t even technologically capable of playing. If your bandwidth is good enough, you could play a game like Gears of War on the HTC Flyer irregardless of the fact that it has an aging Adreno 205 GPU. Take a look at the videos above (OnLive hardware display) and below for an idea of what’s headed our way.
