Free OnLive Console When You Preorder Duke Nukem Forever
Those guys at OnLive really want to give you one of their streaming micro-consoles.
The service, which allows users to stream PC games over the Internet to their computers, is giving away free streaming consoles to users who preorder Duke Nukem Forever. The micro-consoles bring the PC game streaming service to users’ TVs, and comes with an HDMI cable and a game pad to play with, and usually goes for $99. Get in on the preorder right here.
OnLive ran similar promotions for preorders for Homefront and Red Faction: Armageddon. The streaming console works pretty well, in fact — I took advantage of the Homefront preorder and snagged a micro-console of my very own, and have since used it to play a couple other games, including Metro: 2033 and Alien vs. Predator.
In addition to offering rental plans or unlimited plans on a game-by-game basis for some titles, OnLive also offers a 50-game PlayPack that users can access for a monthly subscription fee of $10 per month. Borderlands was recently added to the service, and if you haven’t played the game, $10 a month to play it, Prince of Persia and Just Cause 2, among others, certainly isn’t a bad rate.
