OnLive Cloud-Based Game System Release Date and Price

OnLive, Inc. announced that their cloud-based Game System is available now for pre-order for $99 and first deliveries are expected starting December 2, 2010.

The OnLive Game System will allows you to play new-release video games to TVs instantly and on-demand, without ever having to bother with discs, downloads or updates, PC hardware upgrades or expensive game consoles for only $99. That’s right you read correct,  for this sum you will receive a OnLive MicroConsole TV adapter, which you need to hookup to your internet connection and your TV,  and a wireless controller, and that’s all, but  now you have all the power of Xbox360, PS3, latest Nvidia and AMD graphics power.
