Onlive coming to iPad in Fall

http://www.engadget.com/2011/06/07/o...ts-the-public/

Personally this has me super excited, playing console games on an ipad. Duke Nukem on iOS, sounds awesome. I know the details are scarce but this definitely sounds like it could be a killer iPad feature.

Depending on the lag, it would be awesome to have the ipad connected to apple tv and playing onlive. Or possibly wired using the hdmi out function.

Lots of exciting possibilities what are you thoughts?

I think it's a good move I actually really like Onlive I'm not sure how the games will work on a touchscreen though.
Onlive is a very good service in my opinion I've played with it both on my main PC and more impressively on my netbook and if there was any lag it wasn't enough to notice although a factor might be my cable connection has very good pings.

If it gets to the stage where you can play Crysis 2 or similar on an Ipad I might buy one myself.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

ugh, why would you post PocketGamer's re-post of a day old news with less info than what was available a day ago? I've added engadget's link who happens to have a hands on video too (on moto Xoom). Watch the awesomeness in moving pictures and sound!!
