Onlive Returns With New Services

Cloudlift Beta

OnLive, a video game streaming service, is coming back. After some major changes in the company in the past, including their founder leaving, OnLive has returned with a new team that includes their CEO Mark Jung, former chief of IGN.

Cloudlift is one of their new services that will allow users to stream games that they own on other services, like Valve’s Steam, for only $14.99 a month. With 60 frames per second and a 720p resolution, even owners to old or slow PCs will be able to play games, like Saints Row IV, with the best graphics available. All of that can be found on Cloudlift. This new service will put the company on the same page as publishers and developers, as well as giving players the option to play the game locally or through the cloud, rather than creating a new Netflix-like service.

OnLive Go will allow players to check out online games, such as War Thunder and Second Life, on mobile devices. Linden Labs’ Second Life will be available on mobile devices via SL Go, but it will cost you $3 an hour. Don’t want to wait for hours on end until this MMO downloads? Well, now you can play on the cloud, while your local version downloads. The PlayStation 4 was the first console to bring this idea to fruition on a large scale, but this seems like the biggest attempt to implement this type of system on PCs.

OnLive require at least 2 megabits a second with 5 megabits a second recommended, which means that the average user will be able to use these new services. There are only 20 games available through the service, though more titles are incoming. For more OnLive news and reviews keep your sights locked on Gaming Precision.
