All the sessions from Transform 2021 are available on-demand now. Watch now.

OnLive created a big stir last week as it announced a video-games-on-demand service set to launch this fall. The service promises to let gamers play high-end games on low-end hardware and would mean you’ll never have to upgrade to a new game console again. Created over seven years, the service has the support of nine game publishers and backers such as Autodesk and Warner Bros. Interactive Studios. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company is building its service around a new server-based game technology. Do you think it will work?
