    A few days ago, we shared a story about the possible future of gaming, cloud based gaming service called OnLive, with its own dedicated universal wireless controller. OnLive just shared their official press release, and it will be available in the United States and Europe, in the Autumn of this year. Furthermore, the folks over at BGR were able to demo the service on an HTC Flyer, a Motorola Xoom, and an Apple iPad, and came away mightily impressed. Here's a quote from their story, followed by the official press release.
    This stuff has the potential to be a truly "disruptive" technology. The primary upsides to define a technology as disruptive are already starting to fall into place for this service. One is that in the future, most people will probably have a tablet of some kind anyway, and with this service, you will never need to buy a gaming console again, since your tablet becomes your console. That covers the price and convenience aspect of a "disruptive" tech. Two, the ease of networking with your friends for multiplayer gaming creates a social aspect to it that typically drives consumers in that direction. That covers the marketing aspect of it. This is definitely something to keep your eyes on. Here's the Press Release:
