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.

Yeah but… what if you don’t like Duke Nukem and you think he’s annoying? I don’t see “Duke Nukem” as an incentive to getting an OnLive Console. Maybe if you had some OTHER games, or better ones than “Duke Nukem” then it would be worth my money.

I’m sorry, but Duke Nukem is so f**king played out. In comparison to Mass Effects and Commander Shepard — Duke Nukem is the tired old man.
