How does origin do it? Pretty incredible.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried the "streaming demos" from origin? You can instantly play the demo in browser. Really incredible how fast technology moves. When I was a kid I remember waiting DAYS to download game demos from fileplanet.

It's cool, but certainly nothing new. Gaikai has been doing it for the past couple of years.
Basically the next step up from Onlive.

You've been able to play wow as a streaming demo for a few years now.

Pretty much this. Right now they are working with LG to bring their service to some of their new tv sets.
