OnLive just posted this on their twitter page:
https://twitter.com/#!/OnLive

"Yes, MJ made a bet. We need to grow our FB followers to 62,791. If we do, all US users get any game for $1. "
Facebook Page
http://www.facebook.com/OnLive

Currently they are about 10k short. I'd assume if they don't get the 10k they'll probably do the Dollar deal as well but thats just a thought.

Anyways go like that page for the sake of me getting space marines for 1 dollar. ha

Updated from a employee of OnLive's Twitter

"Help me win a bet with my manager! If OnLive gets to 62,791 FB fans on Sat, US players get their next game for $1!"

Followed, don't know what game to get. I've had my OnLive account since they began and never played any games on it.

Space Marines looked and played very well when I played it.

Depending on the expiration of the dollar deal you could grab Arkham City or Saints Row in the future

it's cool if you dont have any system to play games on. but the small, very small, very slight lag is pretty noticeable going from a regular game to a streaming service. it's a very cool idea though. they do get a like from me.

Personally I am getting much better service via buying the Onlive console. But yea there is lag. Still a fun system with lots of deals and cheap games popping up.

Also they just sent out an email with this info so hopefully a bunch of people who are members and haven't fanned them fan them

Its almost like playing a high end computer game on a graphics card that only gets 18 FPS. Thats what I'd compare it too. Although some games are fine. Space marine was surprisingly clear crisp and quick

I still don't know how they can offer the deals like this, I've bought 4 games, all under 5 bucks, + gotten a free microconsole.

Got likes from me, my second account, and my mom's account now though...

They're losing money left and right. To have any chance of succeeding they need a user base, so they're building one. I'm sure they don't plan to start turning a profit for a couple of years.

Do I have to turn in my CAG card if EA's suckitude and Steam's excellence exceed my desire to save money here? Not liking this on principle.

Hopefully it'll reach its mark by the end of the day.

Here is their games list: http://www.onlive.co...#&tab=top_games

I doubt it will work for pre-orders. I bought Space Marine for 12 bucks the other day. It plays very well. Maybe i'll get Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Dirt 3, or Red Faction Armageddon.

Remember everyone OnLive is FREE To download to your PC (or mac?) My netbook stuttered like hell but a Goozer/Cag'er here said it worked great on his PC.

The console can be had cheaply with deals here and there (I pre-ordered a game and got it free)

Also if my Wireless Logitech Wheel works on onlive might go for Dirt 3. The system by itself is AT LEAST a great way to Demo games for 30 minutes.

As for making money I'm assuming game Dev's don't care at all about allowing OnLive to sell these games cheap.

1: it emphasizes digital Distro which hurts resale of games (boooo).
2: The companies probably do almost 0 work :porting these games to Onlive"
3: It's a good way for gamers who don't have a PC to buy PC games.

Anyways I assume OnLive if successful enough will be a prime candidate for Amazon to buy or another company. Personally I think its a brilliant idea.

I wonder if this will include preorders? Doubt it, but it would be pretty awesome to get Saints Row 3 for a buck lol
