Happy Cloud - Play games as they are being downloaded

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Anyone try it? http://www.thehappycloud.com/

Instead of waiting hours for a game to download, you can start playing it after like 10%. When it's done downloading you can play offline.

Seems pretty cool. If the (lack of?) DRM is good this could get big.

So does this basically work like Onlive (streaming game from remote pc) during the download process and then after it is fully downloaded, you play on your pc? Seems kinda neat to be able to start playing before it is fully downloaded. Although it would still take me probably 20+ minutes to get to start playing even during the install.

It's a little different. It just downloads the first level or so and then you can start playing.

It took about 10 min for me to start playing LEGO. I am trying out FEAR2 now. $8 for it seems like a decent deal.
