So… does it work with any (compatible) Android tablet - or just the Jetstream and Tab specifically?
Looks like you get a free copy of Lego Batman just for logging in through the App.
This sounds pretty amazing. I'm checking out OnLive now to see if it's worth it and the prices don't look too bad. I'd like to see more games available of course but being able to play your games on any device sounds very tempting!
If you're with BT it's free I think.
I gave it a go with my X10 last night on Dirt 3 (I already had an account). To be honest it was almost impossible to play. Ok my X10 touch screen is a little poor but even with a decent multitouch screen I don't think you had the accelerator/steering fidelity required. It was practically digital! On a tablet the bigger screen might help but I can't help but feel for most games this is just a gimmick.
