OnLive Wi-Fi Beta service launches

OnLive adds WiFi support

| Gaming News | Posted: Sep 20, 2010 4:02 pm

OnLive has been available for a while now and is an interesting way to get your video games. The idea is that you can play all sorts of video games without having to go to the store and make a purchase. The streaming service has a monthly fee to be a member and then you still have to purchase the video games as well. Since launch, you have had to have your machine connected to a wired web connection to play.

OnLive has announced that it has a new Wi-Fi Beta service now available that lets users wanting to play some games on a notebook use a wireless connection. According to the company all you need to do is launch OnLive and the user will get a prompt for Wi-Fi Beta that they can select if they are using WiFi when the app is launched.

 

The only catch is that your wireless connection has to offer at least 3Mbps connection speed. One nice thing is that if your web connection drops the game will save your place for up to five minutes and allow you to resume when the connection comes back online. OnLive states that it will continue to make improvements and enhancements to the service.
