Will Streaming PS3 really be a good idea?

Judging by how OnLive worked, extremely compressed video, input lag.and needing an internet connection better than most people have.

1) Video compression - sure, I'll give you that one. On occasion, you might see some artifacting here or there.

2) Never had any issue with input lag. That's with mouse/keyboard and using the Onlive Wireless Controller.

3) I have basic Comcast "high speed" internet. Works perfectly for me.

Onlive is an awesome service. I use it all the time on my Nexus 7, using my HTC Droid DNA's 4G for my wireless hotspot while I'm at work on my lunch break. Playing full console games like Witcher 2 and Splinter Cell Conviction on my tablet, smart phone, or desktop, while maintaining my save files across all platforms, is amazing.

Leaves out almost all of Europe, that's one reason Gaikai isn't going there any time soon.

Probably a latency issue.
