OnLive Pricing Structure Revealed

By Brian Leahy, Jun 22, 2010 1:00pm PDT OnLive, a cloud-based gaming service currently open to a small group of early adopters, allows players to experience PC games through a special client that handles interaction with the game. The rendering and processing of the actual game occurs on machines owned by OnLive. Given a good Internet connection, netbooks could conceivably play graphics-intensive games.

While the OnLive service itself will run $4.95 a month, games are not included in this deal. How much will the games cost? Eurogamer has found a list of pricing for 19 games on the service. Options include purchasing the game for the duration of OnLive's current licensing agreement -- through June 17, 2013 -- or renting certain games for 3 or 5 days.
