OnLive launching this week

US debut official

The OnLive cloud gaming platform will launch this week - on June 17th to be precise.

A range of games will be on offer from the get-go, playable using a broadband connection and no local hardware muscle; only a controller.

The service will arrive as part of a partnership with US telecom giant AT&T, and will be free for the first year - 4.95 USD a month afterwards.

Launch games include Assassin's Creed II, Dragon Age: Origins and Just Cause 2. The services works over Macs and PCs, and will also work via an HDTV adapter eventually.

US players can sign-up online now.
