OnLive to stream console quality games directly to your iPad

Regular readers will have noticed that we've been following the developments at OnLive since the start. The idea is simple enough, run the original game code on a large PC server farm, compress the display and sound information in realtime and push it down the internet to client software running on far less powerful machines. The only data going back up the pipe is the control instructions.

It's cloud computing taken to its natural limit, the entire output of one computing device streamed in realtime (in both directions) over the internet to another computing device.

OnLive has provided a very limited iPad app for quite some time, but it seems that the real deal is coming soon enough. We can't wait to try it! We've tested the Mac version for quite a while and even though we are separated from the OnLive game servers by the entire Atlantic ocean it's clear to us that this concept has massive potential.

I saw something on this on youtube but they where discussing lag issues between the cloud and the user. The other issue was about the picture quality not being so great, They where showing a racing game but i cant remember the name of it. Any update on that do you know of?
