OnLive Wi-Fi beta launches

OnLive is a streaming cloud-based gaming service that we have talked about on a few occasions. The service sounds really cool with no console needed to play some of the cooler games out there. OnLive has announced that a new Wi-Fi Beta service has launched.

Previously you had to be using a wired connection to the internet to take advantage of the cloud gaming service. According to OnLive, all you have to do to use the new service is start OnLive and a message will pop up that says you are using Wi-Fi Beta and the user selects it.

OnLive says that in testing the Wi-Fi service has been found to be fully functional on networks that can sustain at least 3 Mbps connections. The service will save your game right where you are if you lose connectivity for as long as 5-minutes.
