The "Future Of Video Games" Goes On Sale Tomorrow

Image for article titled The "Future Of Video Games" Goes On Sale Tomorrow

OnLive, the streaming service that has the potential to change forever the way we play (and purchase) video games, will begin selling its small TV "console" tomorrow. And it's got a rather attractive price-point to go along with it.


The small unit, which plugs into your internet connection and then into your TV - bringing you the OnLive service - goes on sale for $99, which when you consider the service now no longer includes a subscription fee, is a pretty good price, especially since a control pad is also included.

In addition to the box and pad, purchasers will also be given a $50 credit with OnLive, which means you'll get your first game for free. While OnLive will begin taking orders for the box tomorrow, consoles won't ship until December 2.

OnLive has been available for a little while now on the PC, but it's expected this "console" will be the service's bread and butter.

I only just noticed the buttons say L I V E. Sigh.
