Exactly what does OnLive do? And what is Cloud Gaming?

OnLive, if I recall correctly, lets you wirelessly access an OnLive gaming PC and play games. Video of the game will be streamed to your computer. It's basically subscription-based remote access to a gaming PC.

Cloud gaming I think is where your saves are saved to a database, not a physical hard drive.

So does that mean I could play games using OnLive that I normally couldn't run on my PC?

Yeah, that's basically the entire selling point of the service. You have to buy this little receiver box. You also have to buy the games individually. On top of that, you have to pay a monthly fee to use the service. I don't think you can use mods. It can be quite expensive and doesn't give you all of the freedoms that buying a gaming PC would give you, but it's an alright alternative.

How much does the console thing cost?

Never mind, that's just to play on your TV, you don't have to have it.

OnLive is fantastic. I got a year's subscription for FREE, but later they made it to where THERE IS NO SUBSCRIPTION FEE! So all you have to do is purchase the games. They have Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, and a variety of games. I was skeptical at first, but it really does work well. If you have a PC, all you need to do is download the application. You can play demos instantly, you can just purchase a game for a couple days for a cheap price, or just buy the game entirely. Prices are low, and its awesome.

Hoooly crap! That's a fantastic idea. When there's no fee for it I'm definately going to use this service. Damnnn that's shockingly good.

Though the only real selling point of gaming on my pc is mods :/ but I'm sure there are some awesome games I'd like to play on my pc, eg: Crysis!

Monthly internet cap is a big no no for onlive. Would really like to try it though, maybe a few years later.

You could probably play Crysis 2 on a netbook.

scratch Hmmm, I'm not sure if mods are compatible with games played on OnLive. The actual game runs on their servers, so I think mods are out of the question, at least for now.
