I just got this e-mail from OnLive.  It actually makes me interested in OnLive if they get a better selection of games.  Seems like it could be a GREAT alternative to GameFly.

What do you duders think?  Better than their current payment plans?  I think so.

I have a really strong suspicion that OnLive is going to go the way of the Dreamcast - way ahead of the times and as a result it's going to fail incredibly.

@RsistncE: Probably so, which is why this seems like a better way for them to do business to me.  Since you never actually bought the game (just payed a monthly fee to rent them basically) it would take a lot of hurt out if they do go under.

That is probably what OnLive should have been when it launched. Seems like a much better offering with that subscription plan.

As someone who lives in rural Vermont with a mediocre internet connection, I'll never get in to OnLive. It's way too far ahead of it's time - maybe in the future when everything is on fiber it would make more sense, but latency is way too much of an issue now.

They're definately going in the right direction with this monthly plan.
