EA: Onlive can rival high-end PC games
According to EA their titles look just as good running on the Onlive streaming service as they do on a high-end PC.
EA's senior VP, Patrick Soderlund explained to CVG that even the mighty Crysis looks just as impressive on the new streaming service as it does on the fastest PCs around.
Soderlund said: "The thing with that is, it doesn't matter how powerful the game is or what graphics you're running on. Everything is handled somewhere else. The stream and the mechanism that controls the stream, that's the problem right now, getting the latency down so that it feels like you're playing on your TV at home rather than a server somewhere else."
He added: "I've tested it myself I've played high-end games like Crysis or Bad Company 2 and they looked exactly like they would do on the highest end PC."
