OnLive gets a Release Date & Price.
Last year at the Gaming Developer's Conference they unveiled OnLive. An On demand game streaming service. Sounds great but no release date or what the price for the service were announced.
Well the wait is OVER!!!!!
At this years conference they've announce that OnLive will go Live on June 17th in the U.S with the pricing set at $14.95 USD per month.
In addition to that, OnLive is comping the first three months worth of service to the first 25,000 qualified people who sign up for the service and promises multi-month pricing "loyalty programs". More info on this will be revealed the closer E3 arrives.
Some down Sides to this though, as of right now it is only available in 48 states, leaving Hawaii & Alaska out of it. Also the $14.95 will not include renting of games or purchasing of games, the prices for those two will be available around E3 aswell.
more info on what the monthly fee will cover is here: http://kotaku.com/5490382/onlive-starts-streaming-games-on-demand-this-june-for-15-a-month
Will this be a BIG HIT or a BIG MISS? We'll find out come June.
