OnLive Game System review

We're still a little ways away from completely disposable laptops that do everything in the cloud, but if all you want is a completely virtual game console connected to your TV, you can buy one right now. Eight years after the Phantom slowly got laughed off the face of the planet, the OnLive MicroConsole fulfills the same basic promise: it's a box less than an inch tall that streams games from powerful remote servers. We already told you what to expect from the OnLive's Game System, but now that we've given it our all, we can help you find the answer to the only remaining question: is it worth your funds?

Pros
  • Stellar build qualityAffordable priceA tiny box, filled with promise
Cons
  • Requires stellar internet connectionLimited game selectionA tiny company, filled with promises
