Video: Onlive Cloud Gaming Console-Unboxing, Setup, and Demo. Like a Review, but Not

Join Growing Up Otaku's Managing Editor Krutzler (For realz! Not a CG puppet!) for an "impromptu unboxing" of the Onlive MicroConsole.

This honest, uncensored, barely edited video takes a look at the Onlive cloud based video game console starting with opening the Fed-Ex box and climaxing with some Red Faction: Guerrilla gameplay.

I have attempted to provide every technical detail I could think of in this video. Subtitles are used liberally throughout to correct errors, misconceptions, fill in blanks, and provide the odd laugh or two. Behold as the snark of GUO is turned inward on itself. Meta!

Run time is just over 38minutes. I hope you enjoy watching!

If you have any other questions, check out Onlive.com, Onlivefans.com, or just ask away in the comments.

*In support of this video (and because I think Onlive is one of the coolest things to happen to gaming since SVGA graphics), I will try to be on Onlive every night from 9:30PM to 10:30PM EDT in July 2011. My ID is ryte2byte  You can watch and berate me using the free client for PC, Mac, or iPad.

  1. That video is so long. Next time cut it short because I did fall asleep in the first 5 min. Also nice big feet by the way and for the tour of baby toys. LOL!

  4. Do you mean the free console? It was from the 100% off deal I posted a few weeks back. I even told you to get one in the comments:

  5. Liked the video - very thorough and well done. I could see everything about the console very clearly. Also liked the text tags, with information about the video (like the dimensions of the console, etc)

  6. NEAT CLOUD CONSOLE. SEEMS TO WORK WELL. HOPEFULLY THAT WILL DRIVE DOWN THE COST OF CONSOLE GAMING!

  7. Ironically, its PC gaming :) They just made a little streamer box to get the output from the server farm.

    Did you know they're putting this stuff in BluRay players and TVs now? Can you freaking imagine! State of the art gaming PC streamed directly to your TV?!

    I'm curious, were you able to read the subtitles at all? I tried to keep your vision (or lack thereof) in mind while making it.
