OnLive is a company offering a cloud gaming platform and a cloud desktop solution. Both offerings are synchronized, rendered, and stored on remote servers and delivered via the Internet. The gaming platform is available using the OnLive Game System, PCs running Microsoft Windows (XP, Vista, 7), Intel-based Macs with Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later, Android devices and iOS devices. Since the games are rendered on OnLive's servers, a low-end computer may be used to play any kind of game as long as it is able to play video. For that reason, the service is being seen as a competitor for the console market. All games on the service are available in 720p format. OnLive recommends an Internet connection of 5_Mbit/s or faster, and a 2_Mbit/s connection meets the minimum system requirements. Over 50 publishers, such as Take-Two Interactive, Ubisoft, Epic Games, Atari, Codemasters, THQ, Warner Bros.
