OnLive has gone… well… “live” for a few people today. Here’s a video of it running games on the iPad. I still haven’t gotten an invite (I signed up a long time ago.. what’s the deal?) but I’m very anxious to try it out. I’m especially excited because I just put an Acer Aspire Revo 3610 on my TV, which would be perfect for OnLive.
I got into the first round of public beta testing for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s multiplayer element on the Xbox 360. I’m horrible at it, but it is really awesome! I’m looking forward to the title’s full release.

Core77 (a great industrial design site) has a great discussion going on in their discussion boards on the design in the new Microsoft Xbox 360 console. User Optimistic has posted some great images of some prototype Xbox designs from 1998 on the first page of the discussion.
