OnLive Gaming Service GDC 2009

When it was unveiled at last year's Game Developers Conference, OnLive made big waves and had everyone talking. After 12 months of speculation about the service, MCV revealed details on the service's release date and subscription model. According to the report, the service will launch on PCs and Macs on June 17 with a monthly subscription fee of $14.95. EA, Ubisoft, Take-Two, THQ, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will support OnLive with titles from their library of games. The details were also made available during an event at GDC earlier this morning.

OnLive COO Mike McGarvey (no relation to yours truly, but nice name!) provided some details on what you can expect regarding game access, saying, "Individual titles will be available for purchase or rental on an a la carte basis. Specific game pricing, including rentals,purchases and loyalty programs, will be announced prior to the consumer launch event at E3. We’ll also be announcing additional loyalty and discount programs for consumers in the coming months."

MCV also indicated that more details on game titles and pricing for purchase will become available closer to the June launch. For now, the article states that McGarvey confirmed that Assassin's Creed II, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and Metro 2033 will launch with OnLive.

So, there you have it. I find the prospect of OnLive intriguing, and it's telling that in light of Ubisoft's controversial DRM practices on PC, they're throwing a lot of weight behing the service. If you can play games on your PC without lag or concern for download times, will you give OnLive a spin?
