OnLive hits UK: Streaming gaming is go

Streaming game company OnLive has officially launched in the UK, bringing its cloud-hosted gaming system to PCs, Macs and TVs, with tablet and phones support in the pipeline. Around 150 titles are available for UK gamers at launch, with a special offer making the first just £1 ($1.55), and either per-title or subscription packages are available. Meanwhile, OnLive has also confirmed that EA Games titles will soon be arriving in the catalog, beginning with Bulletstorm.

UK gamers can choose the £6.99 per month OnLive PlayPack Bundle program, which includes over 100 titles. Meanwhile, BT broadband and BT Infinity subscribers will get three months of access to the PlayPack Bundle free. For those not opting for the PC/Mac software client, the OnLive Game System hardware - which plugs into a TV - is priced at £69.99 ($108) and will be offered with the wireless controller as well.

OnLive has also signed a deal with GAME, which will see the company's hardware go on sale in the retailer's stores. Service highlights include "massive spectating", Facebook integration, Brag Clip videos and spectating voice chat (both within the UK and with US gamers).
