thats the info about it. you need hardware devices to work with it, like a gamepad or something along those lines that is made to work with viiv. so there is nothing to do untill you buy hardware that uses it.

There's nothing special about VIIV. There's nothing a VIIV computer can do that any other relatively new computer can't do.

All VIIV means is that your hardware is on the list that defines VIIV hardware. Like "Centrino Duo Mobile Technology" ... where all that is is a dual core (Intel) processor and a free wireless card. It's not a big deal.

Yeah, exactly. There's nothing a VIIV computer can do that any other computer can't do.

All your computer needs in order to stream media is a network card and the right software.

Haahahahah,, too true!!

ViiV is like Video in, in Video,, or so I have been told ,, its just a gimmick,,, like RDR ram, XP media edition, etc..

Like Zoidberg said,, anything it can do, another pc can do too!
(and you dont have to buy gimmicky hardware either!)

LOL!

Best of all>>>> IT WAS FREEEEEEEEE!
