    Why would you want to play games designed and tested for a specific controller on keyboard and mouse? without specific keyboard and mouse support coded into games you'll be getting a substandard experience.

    Outside of that though, this could be great, of course implementation and cost will determine if it will be. No doubt like PSN games publishers with set the price of rental more than retail :D

    This is the edge of the wedge really for gaming as a paid for service in the next generation.

    So true. And the fact that the UK is way behind with broadband services will mean very few will have the bandwidth to get a good experiance.

    As an onlive customer I thought it was good, quality wasn't quite the there but that was probably due to servers being in another country, Sony should be able to do a better job of it.

    personally i'd prefer most games on my naga and nostromo.

    granted until a gamepad with a proper joystick would make that opinion absolutely universal... really hope razer comes with a version with that feature.
