I'm not sure if many of you know about the [URL=http://www.onlive.com][B]OnLive[/B][/URL] service that has launched recently for gamers.
Basically it'll allow PC's, Mac's, and coming soon to a TV near you. To play games streamed via a broadband connection. As long as you have a broadband connection you can play on near obsolete computer hardware. At E3 at the OnLive demo booth someone was using an iPad to showcase the service potential.
Basically the service promises that you can play games at great connectivity without taking a hit on performance. Technically also this service will reduce game piracy on the game publisher end of things. Since all copies of the games are kept on their end of the service infrastructure.
Well here in the States [B]AT&T[/B] is sponsoring [U]Founding Members[/U] for the 1st year of service. Which would typically cost $4.95 a month for the service. That includes maintaining a: profile, friends list, bragging video clips, etc...
This promotion ends this July 15th.

Of course one has to be 18 years old and have a valid credit / debit card to verify your eligibility. (the card isn't charged) They also require you to download an 8Mb software.
Something to check out.
Update: This sponsorship from AT&T has been extended until September 6th of this year.
