The OnLive Playpack Gets a Good Bit More Desirable

The OnLive Playpack, in which you pay $10 a month and get to play any of like 70 different games all you want, is a pretty good deal. OnLive is sweetening the pot, however, by offering a 30% discount on everything you buy from Onlive (games and hardware) if you’re a Playpack subscriber. For some perspective, 30% off a new $50 game would be $15 off. If OnLive really starts ramping up on new releases, this is gonna be one of the best deals in gaming.

And if you are already a Playpack subscriber, now might be a good time to pre-order Deus Ex: Human Revolution

I’ve tried some of the free services, while a cool concept, the look and feel of the streaming just dose not feel right to me. I can see how the price is appealing to others as an alternative, its just not for me.
Also you have to wonder, with such a cheap price, how long before they switch it on customers and raise the price %60 like Netflix is doing?

The only downside I see with OnLive is that I have a high-end rig for playing Dwarf Fortress and Minecraft and the like (and yes, they do like a nice rig). You can buy games permanently if you don’t like subscriptions, and I’m not too unhappy with the quality (though it’s not perfect for everywhere), if only it weren’t counterproductive to have a good rig for freebies and pay extra to stream in my commercial games as opposed to just buying them elsewhere.
