It lives!


More news coming out of GDC:

Onlive announced a release date – June 17th – for their new streaming video game service that lets you play games on any computer and your TV.  Which I assume is involves some sort of array of servers dipped in the blood of virgins, and/or a pact with the devil.

Its $14.95 plus the cost to rent/buy the games.  Which I’m not sure how I feel about.  It’s yet another subscription to my monthly bill but the ability to play high end PC games on my low end pc – or on my big ass TV – is tempting.

Like most services it’ll of course boil down to which 3rd parties they can get on board (EA, Ubisoft, and THQ so far), if they’ll be able to release games day and date of the physical product dropping and of course if their server witchcraft will work in my service area.

The first 25,000 people that sign up for their preregistration will get the 3 months of the service for free (Onlive’s charges waved, you’ll still have to buy/rent games) which doesn’t sound bad if you’re looking to test the waters.
