Onlive has continued its generous pre-order offerings with the announcement that Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be coming to its service. If you pre-order the “Augmented Editon” of the game you will get all the standard bonuses associated with that edition (which include the soundtrack, art book and more), as well as a free OnLive Game System, and a free copy of the last Deus Ex game – all for $53.99. The standard edition of Deux Ex: Human Revolution, which sells for $44.99, only includes the free copy of Deus Ex: GOTY Edition.
The free Game System, which retails for $100 on its own, makes this quite a good deal, and continues a trend of OnLive bundling the most anticipated games with their console (other pre-orders that currently include a free console include Duke Nukem Forever and Red Faction: Armageddon).
OnLive, which is compatible with Windows and Mac, is a new digital distribution platform that streams games from their powerful servers to your screen, forgoing the typical high requirements for PC gaming.
