Hey, it works.

This is a pretty good product, free, instant, no registration required. I played a bit of the Witcher 2 demo and i saw no hiccups (in particular no lag) besides a little bit of visual artifacting... Most of the servers for other games are overloaded right now so it's hard to try. The other limitation (which is not immediately apparent) is that it is JUST demos. There are Buy This buttons on the games but they link straight to Origin for the EA games... Not possible to buy them and play the full game on Gaikai. Overall though, i'm impressed

I've never even heard of this service.

It's similar to onlive.

I figured, cool. Might have to check it out then.

So Gaikai(?) is a streaming demo service from Origin?

I like the idea of just streaming a demo, so no long download before trying a game you hate and will never play again.
