2010 is a great year to be a Mac gamer. Steam for Mac has already brought us a new way to play with and against our PC-gaming pals-slash-nemesis, with dozens of hot games that we never had access to before. But those games download to your Mac, and run on your Mac—so if you're Mac isn't up to the minimum specs, no game for you.
OnLive wants to change all that.
Launching today at 6pm Pacific time, the instant-play service streams live games to your Mac or PC, via a browser plug-in. You control the game as if it were running on your local machine, but in reality it's running on a powerful server machine at an OnLive data center up to 1,000 miles away.
