Magical Box Streams PC Games To My Television

Onlive's streaming game service made the leap from the PC to the TV with the release of the Microconsole TV adapter earlier this month. How well does it work? See for yourself.

Setting up the Microconsole TV Adapter was simple. Just plug in the unit, attach ethernet and HDMI cables, and you're set. The rest is as easy as you see here. As long as you have a fast enough internet provider and enough bandwidth, this could be your experience as well, minus the clutter and crappy Westinghouse television.
