OnLive opened up Wi-Fi play which allows the gaming service to be streamed rather having to be hard wired free

The Mac and Windows gaming service had previously needed a wired link to stream games without hiccups but is now optimized to address the possible temporary interruptions and other connection issues with wireless.

Using the wireless induces some extra lag but otherwise works the same as for wired. As a bonus, the service can automatically pause a game for up to five minutes if your Wi-Fi signal starts to fade or break up.
