Quick Updates for 6/15/2010

I’m back again with two quick updates.

  1. A demo  for NCAA Football 11 has been released into the wild. I’ve toyed with the Xbox 360 version and the new locomotion engine makes a massive difference. The game just felt extremely smooth to me. It looked fantastic as well and I saw zero framerate hiccups. That’s a good sign.
  2. OnLive is set to launch tomorrow, but they’ve been hinting and a big reveal and some new surprises today. A good sign for those of us anxiously waiting for the go ahead to use the service will be happy to note that their site is currently down for maintenance, which signals that they’re finally moving to their new site format (revealed during the registration process for early applicants). I’m interested to hear their big news. Word got around overnight that the service would cost $4.95 a month, and there would be a sign-up bonus for the first month. Some say that the sign-up bonus would be a free year of OnLive. If so, that would be a huge gamble, as well as a huge show of confidence. We’ll see as the day goes on.

That’s all for now. Later, all.

EDIT: And just like that, the flashy new OnLive site is up.
