In an industry first, a new gaming service will start allowing people to "stream" popular games over the Internet in June, similar to checking Web-based e-mail or listening to music online.

OnLive Inc., launched a year ago with much fanfare, embraces "cloud computing," in which software runs on a computer elsewhere, not on the player's own PC or game console. That means players can buy or rent high-end games such as "Mass Effect 2" with even older, less powerful computers and Macs.
