Onlive is having a promotion that when you purchase $10 or more, you will recieve a 100% off coupon valid toward any game, OnLive Game System or OnLive Wireless Controller. Below is the small print from their site.

You can purchase multiple games that total over $10 to receive the coupon. They can even be purchased separately as long as it is between June 6th-11th. They have a few games on sale during this promotion including:
-NBA 2K10 for $5
-NBA 2K11 for $9.99
-The Ball for $5 (Friday, June 10th only)

More information can be found at: http://support.onliv...WQvb0k1aDJYdms=

A few restrictions for the promotion:
- $9.99 is less than $10, so you would have to purchase an additional game to surpass the $10 mark.
-These coupons apparently do not work with preorders.
- According to the OnLive Twitter feed, there is only one coupon per account.
- According to dmdragon's response from OnLive (post #98), this $10 purchase can include the PlayPass and rentals.


*Purchase must be made between June 6, 2011 at 9:00PM PDT and June 11, 2011 at 12:59PM PDT. Terms and available titles are subject to change without notice. Game purchases are not transferable and are available to connect to the OnLive Game Service. No cash value. Cannot be combined with other offers. Only valid within the contiguous United States while connected to the OnLive Game Service. ALL SALES ARE FINAL. NO REFUNDS. NO RETROACTIVE DISCOUNTS.

For demos, I love OnLive. Sure the graphics wont be as pretty but that doesn't matter to me, I'm playing the demo to see if I like the game 90% of the time. It is nice to be able to fire up a demo of a game within a minute and be playing.

Only reason I'll download one now is to either make sure it runs of my system (say it is an older game and I have W7, or if it is buggy) and if it isn't on OnLive now.

If my system wasn't high end then I would need to use the demo to gauge performance but that isn't and wont be an issue for me I doubt lol.


As for the topic, it is a good deal, but with not giving out serial keys I wont be making any purchases from them sadly.

This deal screams crazy to me. Either the hardware and streaming costs nothing to them or they are bleeding money in hopes to get a big install base. I can't see how this company is still afloat. Then again what do I know about the nature of this kind of service?

OnLive always has these crazy deals that turn my head...

until I remember that I have no interest in their service. I didn't just buy a new graphics card for cloud gaming. I can see the appeal though.

I'm looking at Dirt 2 at $14.99 to be able to race on my Macbook Pro :) Other than that, I think that Defense Grid Gold is $13.99. I could have sworn there was a game for $12.99 on there as well.

I give up. This is such a great deal, I literally cannot pass on it this time.
Now I just need to find a game. Maybe Amnesia? I own it on PC, but I never play it on it, and I have a feeling it would work better with a controller and on my TV.

Yep. I'm guessing you pay shipping, but this is completely insane.

do you need to buy their controller to use the micro console though?
How much does that cost?
Or would it be cheaper/smart to buy two different games, like Dirt 2 and Arkham Asylum ($45 total) and get both console and controller free?

I caved and bought Metro 2033. I already have the game on steam but my computer is sucking and wont' run it, so we'll just do it this way.
Ran perfectly on my Hackintoshed Dell Netbook. I could see this becoming a purchasing problem if they keep having such great sales...

Does the per-order free console bonus stack with this? Like say if I bought Dirt 2 for $15 could I use the coupon on a Duke Nukem pre-order that includes the micro console?

Not yet. I'd assume there would be some delay, yah?

As for deal stacking...if that works it would be INCREDIBLE.

Wow, this is way better than the "pre order Homefront get microconsole free" deal I bit on. I may just have to buy something to get another controller. I like being able to take the microconsole to my friends house and have access to all my games.

I'd imagine that's the bit about not valid with other offers.

Edit - Some answers from their Twitter:
"@loveassassin13 No, on purchases only. Not pre-orders."
"There have been a lot of questions about when the 100% coupon will be sent. They will be sent after promotion end on June 11."

So, can't buy a cheap game and then pre-order something, or get a pre-order, get a console free with that, then buy another new, non-pre-order game. Basically, anything that already has something already included as a bonus won't get you the 100% coupon.

However, buying Split/Second or Pure right now will get you the 100% coupon instead of the previously promo'd 50% off.

Kinda considering this now, but no idea what game I'd "buy" to start the process. The Maw is 9.99 :[ Was thinking about getting the Space Marine pre-order for the console, then use the coupon on something else expensive.
