well just intstalled the clint and spent 30 mins playing space marine with no lag . very cool indeed ..

only down side is the resolution. . they have dropped it to sub 360/ps3 to keep the frame rate up over the network ..

so i'll pass until there is a enough bandwidth to up the rez to full hd .. will be very cool in a few years once the bandwdith pipes are fatter

What happens if your Internet goes off for like, 2 or 3 seconds? Game just pause or something?

When i am playing via wifi it stops the game quite alot due to signals beeing unstable. But it only pauses the game until you get good enough signals again.

I think if your internet goes off you lose connection. Losing wifi connection isnt the same as your actual internet imploding.

Games pause. Whe you pay to play your technically booting up your own vm. From what ive read it's work the same as if you pulled a pad cable out of a system. Or you pad batteries died. Once your client drops connect to the vm host the game is pasued for the duration until you re connect.

I tried it this morning .. Loaded space Marne pulled the plug on my network connection and then went back it. It was paused.

Yes it's the same as loosing your internet connection as darren also said the same as me.
