    I'm signing up just to have a go with some demos, always wondered what it would be like although the chances of me actually buying from them are slim.

    I was very impressed TBH.

    Graphics weren't as good as consoles, but that can only improve with Internet speeds.

    Didn't have any issues with latency or lag input.

    + Tried it on my laptop over my Wireless connection.

    I found it very washed out, very low res (to be expected) and (in DNF) had laggy input. Funnily Dirt3 was ok (apart from low res) but I'm not blown away. If I was away a lot with work and had a laptop with a good internet connection then that's a different story...

    It'd be nice to have but I certainly won't be paying for it.

    crap in my opinion, seems a bit pointless saying how amazing it is to play high end games when the end result looks so bad it reminds me of an xbox/ps2 game... not even kidding .

    It has potential but at the minute i wont touch it with a barge pole, seems to be worse than xbox360 aswell so if i really wanted a console id just buy the 360 and play from there and have cheaper games. Generally if im away from home on laptop then its either away with a bad connection or at university with an amazing connection which still wont help as its limited before the bandwidth(i had no issues with my internet here and its a mere 10mb/s).
