The OnLive Game System is now shipping for $99, which includes the MicroConsole bundle and a controller. From now until January 15, 2011, OnLive console owners get access to the PlayPack games library, in beta, free of charge. Titles included in the PlayPack library are as follows:
Prince of Persia
Tomb Raider: underworld
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.
Unreal Tournament 3
Vin Diesel Wheelman
Defense Grid Gold
World of Goo
Once January 15th rolls around, access to the PlayPack will run $9.99/month as a flat-rate plan. In addition, OnLive will continue to offer its current free trials, 3- and 5-day rentals, and Full PlayPass options for a la carte new releases, the company said.
The OnLive system is unique in that it operates entirely on the cloud. It works surprisingly well with better-than-expected responsiveness and some noteworthy features, like built-in 'Brag Clip' controls on the controller that let you capture snippets of gameplay up to 10 seconds at a time.
