OnLive at D8 says iPad ideal
OnLive at the D8 conference demoed its streaming game service running on the iPad. The remote play interface works "great" on an iPad and was shown running the action RPG Borderlands where many of the PCs at the conference wouldn't have the power to run it properly. Videos also work properly, and a Harry Potter movie clip played without lag between the movie and its audio.
An iPhone demo ironically failed, although OnLive chief Steve Perlman explained it as pre-release software that should be addressed soon.
The servers running the service should be active within about two weeks and will cost $15 per month for the base subscription. At least some games will carry an extra fee. However, the "micro-console" for playing without a computer is inexpensive enough that it could be included for free with a subscription. [via AllThingsD]
