OnLive has just announced that they will be introducing a flat rate pricing plan that will allow for players to play more than 40 games as much as they want. The fee is going to be set at $9.99 for the “Play-Pack” plan, not a bad price if you ask me. They are going to offer some good games to start off with from Prince of Persia to LEGO Batman. Here are some more of the highlights:
– The PlayPack is immediately available to OGS owners and will become available to all OnLive members starting January 15, 2011.
– OnLive will continue to offer its current free trials, 3 and 5 day rentals and Full PlayPass options for a la carte new release games.
– The $99 OnLive Game System is now shipping to customers who have placed pre-orders.
Today also marks the day that Onlive begins shipping the OnLive Game System MicroConsole to those that have pre-order the system. Here are more of the games that will be included in the Play-Back plan.
