Earlier this month OnLive announced that it had quadrupled its original free subscription offer, giving its first 25,000 pre-subscribers a full 12 months of service as opposed to just three. That offer is now available to beyond those 25k folks (while availability lasts, of course.)
In a recent post on the official OnLive blog, the streaming team announced the "Founding Members Program," a first-come, first-served promotion poised to give anyone who signs-up a year of the service free with the option of having a second year locked in at a $4.95 month-to-month rate.
That said, the blog post also mentioned "a sampling" of the 20+ games that will be available on the service when it launches today (June 17) in just a couple of hours:
- Assassin’s Creed II
- Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands
- Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction
- Mass Effect 2
- Dragon Age: Origins
- Batman: Arkham Asylum
- Just Cause 2
- NBA 2K10
- MLB 2K10
- Red Faction: Guerrilla
- F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin
- DiRT 2
I'm down with giving OnLive a shot--especially if the iPad version ends up being worth it--so I'll definitely be giving it a spin. Plus, I always wanted to play Crysis or Borderlands on my Macintosh. Chock it up to simple platform envy. Anyway, jump in while it's free!
UPDATE: This offer is indeed subject to availability. Also, GB user The_Laughing_Man reports that there is a waiting list for this deal. Let us know how signing-up for this thing goes for you.
