No, this isn’t a scam or some horrible trick. From now until June 6th if you buy a “Full Play Pass” (aka buying the game) for Red Faction Armageddon through OnLive you get an OnLive console for free. But wait, there’s more, you also get Red Faction Guerrilla for free.
If you remember, before Homefront came out they ran a promotion like this also giving away free Micro Consoles. I’m wondering what’s driving OnLive to run these ridiculous promotions, I’d think they have to be losing some money, but I guess their loss is our gain. Also, I think it’s worth mentioning that if you buy Armageddon from OnLive it’s only $49.99.
