OnLive details UK pricing plans

Cloud game service provider OnLive has detailed its pricing plan for its UK service, which goes live this week. Beginning today, users can purchase the OnLive Microconsole for £69.99.

The package includes the unit, a controller, and necessary cables (including HDMI).

Eurogamer reports that attendees at its Eurogamer Expo will be able to get the OnLive console for free, while supplies last.

According to the report, first individual games for OnLive will cost players £1 for titles sold between £1.99 and £39.99.

The OnLive PlayPack is priced at £6.99, featuring unlimited access to over 100 titles, including Batman: Arkham City, Just Cause 2, and F.E.A.R. 3.

BT broadband will waive usage allowances until the New Year to give users an opportunity to try the service. "It's not part of a contract and we're waiving usage allowances until the New Year. We just want to give our customers the chance to try it, and with more than 100 premium games available, choosing what to play will be the hardest part," BT executive Warren Buckley said.

The offer is open to any customer with BT broadband that registers online before January 31, 2012.
