Something for everyone

OnLive offers everything from AAA blockbusters to multiplayer titles to quirky indie hits and more. Play what you like à la carte, or subscribe to the OnLive PlayPack for unlimited access to a growing library of more than 200 console-class games.



Try games free

Can't decide? Play almost any game on the service for 30 minutes free—no discs, no downloads, no "lite" demos. That's the magic of OnLive: click and play. It's that simple.

Play on your PC, Mac, TV and tablet

OnLive streams games from its powerful data centers in the cloud to a wide range of devices, letting you play on almost any PC or Mac, hDTVs with the OnLive Game System and even Android tablets. Check out a range of touch-enabled titles, or bring along a controller like our Universal OnLive Wireless Controller, and you've turned your tablet into a powerful gaming console.



Take your games with you

Buy a game once and pick up your save games everywhere, simply by logging in. You can even start a game at home and continue on your tablet on your way to work or school.

Make new friends

When you play in the cloud, you never play alone. Log into the OnLive Game Service and you're online with hundreds of thousands of gamers worldwide, who are playing the same games as you. Dive into the massive spectating Arena to watch other gamers play live, Friend them and strike up a Voice Chat, or drop in and join the action with one click.

    Take Call of Duty. I don't really care about the single player campaign as much as the multiplayer, and I'm sure many of you would agree.


Not me, the MP sucks massive monkey balls, i'm glad i didn't pay full price for a 6 hour single player campaign and broken MP.

This is what the mysterious OnLive service has hinted at.

Personally, I would be happy to support a pay-to-play pricing plan, as long as the cost is capped at the game's retail value.  Meaning, if I decide to play a game for 100 hours, I don't want to pay $100.  Once I've reached $60 (or whatever retail price is), at that point I should "own" the game and play it as much as I want.

If they could make that happen, I wouldn't hesitate to buy in.

Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

I just got an email from OnLive.  They are waiving the $14.99 monthly fee of first 3 months of service for the first 25,000 customers.



ps.  I've changed the title of this topic to "OnLive" since that's where this is going.  I'm still not sure what category it should be under (PC maybe?), so "Odds & Ends" seems appropriate.   ;)
