OnLive launches on Thursday

OnLive, the cloud-based gaming platform, will be launched in America this week.

Initial customers will enjoy the first year of the subscription-based service for free, with the second year costing $US4.95 per month.

Games will need to be purchased separately, and the launch line-up includes Assassin's Creed II, Dragon Age: Origins, NBA 2K10 and Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.

A cricial message OnLive CEO, Steve Perlman, claimed is that low-spec PCs and Macs will be able to play higher-end titles, as they are streamed from an off-site server, rather than running on the computer itself. High speed broadband is required.
