We know it's not available in Australia and, to our frustration, there's still no word on whether it will hit our shores any time soon. But OnLive is continuing to make waves overseas with its technological advancements, and with the recent announcement that it is now capable of streaming next-gen visuals through the cloud, it's definitely something we want to keep an eye on.
According to OnLive's CEO, Steve Perlman, next-gen gaming visuals are already possible on the cloud gaming platform. He showed off a tech demo that he said offers a preview of what will soon become "the standard sort of video game that you're going to see on OnLive."
"It's far and beyond [current console hardware] ," he said.
"It's not just higher performance in terms of graphics capability, but we have higher performance in terms of, for example, the disc drives, the networks and so forth that interconnect them."
