OnLive Pricing Revealed

Merrily down the stream.

Pricing for the first batch of games distributed via streaming service Onlive has been revealed and appears to be similar to buying a physical copy. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction will set you back $59.99 and your purchase will last ‘Until at least 17th June 2013’.  Last year’s Borderlands can be bought for $29.99, rented for five days for $8.99 or leased for $5.99 for three days, pricing similar to grabbing a second hand copy or renting from Blockbuster.

The upside of the service is that you should be able to access your games anywhere you have a decent internet connection, the downside is that on top of your game purchase you also pay your OnLive subscription fee. At present the fee is free for the first twelve months, of course if you cancel your subscription you lose everything.

  1. This would be a really cool rental service. But losing the games you have purchased would suck

  2. Geez, that’s expensive. Considering I picked up Borderlands for $20 used and Assassins’ Creed II on Boxing Day for $35, I’ll stick with the tried and true physical media.

  3. i think this will ba a fail especially for virgin costumers. as its a streaming service virgin only allow so many mb upload before they cut ya internet down. this is called the traffic monitoring service.its meant to keep it fair for the area.so at the end of the day if you go on youtube and stream acouple of vids ur 10 meg broadband gets reduced to 2mb and if ya 2mb broadband it gets reduced to under a quater of a meg which the later is mine ;(

  4. Absolutely not interested in this at all, and I may be nasty but I hope it is a commercial fail and it disappears and based on the pricing my wish will come true!
