OnLive: Play new games on any computer.
Just thought I should give a heads up to anyone living in the US about http://www.onlive.com/index.html (they are looking for beta testers Tongue)

It lets you play games directly in your browser or with a small box you plugin to your TV.
The actual "processing" of the game takes place at OnLive's servers and is then streamed directly to your computer as a very very fast compressed video (SD or HD resolution) with about 1ms of lag.

Thus making for example Crysis playable on any computer capable of handeling an addon to IE, FF or any other browser.

Sounds interesting? check out this video for more info. Probably the first 10 minutes is enough to see if you want to get the basics of it, but I recommend watching it all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OGdecNDDr9g
