I just bought Split/Second through Onlive and got the 50% e-mail. Apparently I already had an account, and I had no idea they charged sales tax.

Must be your state. I didn't get charged sales tax living in NC which is strange considering everything else digital is taxed (iTunes, PSN, etc).

Yeah, that must be it if you didn't get charged. I live in Texas. I just thought it was a little weird considering they're a mostly online (not sold in stores) service.

Little FYI I learned tonight.

In order to use a 360 controller, you need to download the driver from Microsoft's website, because the one that auto installs is not compatible.

Loving OnLive so far!

I love the idea of OnLive, and I love that it WORKS, but it's still not quite as good as just playing on a 360 or PS3, and I have both. I'd love to use this for PC games that I can't get on consoles, but they seem to be really focusing on games that ARE on consoles.

Has anyone thought of why the company is offering such a massive discount on their hardware? Is this service due to collapse soon or something? I mean, the MicroConsole is kind of useless if there's no cloud content to stream to it...


They have a good presence at E3, and are talking about some interesting cross promotions like being in all new vizio tv's

If they can pull all this together then this is a great time to get the device. If this blows up then you sure won't bet getting it for 10 bucks (well 20 with shipping) anymore.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us, and for your interest in OnLive. Yes, all of those options would count. As long as all purchases made during the entire promotion add up to $10.00 or more then you will qualify for the free 100% code, which will be sent out after the promotion ends. You can do as many purchases as you want, and they do not all have to be at once.

I have a question before I do all of this. Does the 9.99 play pack count as 9.99 towards the 10 dollar promo? And also do rentals like 3 or 5 day rentals count towards to also?

Does everything have to be on the same order or can they be seperate orders, I have not found a way to do the play pack and then add something else to the cart before checking out. Thank you.


There you have it folks, the play pass and rentals both work.


Got my answer after 15 minutes. I am quite impressed with their support thus far.

That's awesome! Now I wish I would have gotten the pass and a rental.

p.s. Just got an e-mail from Onlive support and learned from the rep that Texas is one of maybe two states that get charged sales tax if anyone was wondering.

I installed it and it never even let me do anything. It basically said "Your internet is too slow, Fuck you!" I have crappy DSL and don't expect this to run well, but I still want to take advantage of this offer and get the hardware for free. Probably gonna have to go to a friend's house just to buy it. That's lame.


Same here. Didn't realize how bad my connection was until I did a speed test. Apparently it's less than 1 mbps :-|.

Did you use the links in the original post?

It might be easier to sign up for the free account first. I would then download the client and try the service out first before purchasing just in case your Internet connection cannot handle it. If it works fine for you, just use the client to see what games and/or promotions they have on sale (in the Showcase).

I wish my internet connection was good enough to use OnLive.

Then again, I have a pretty decent graphics card, anyway, so it doesn't really matter..

Well I bought Amnesia for $20. If I get the 100% coupon as promised then I'll either buy Red Faction Armageddon with it, or see if they'll let me wait and buy Deus Ex: Human Revolution with it. Sure it's $10 more than some of he other options but I think I might as well buy something I actually want to play.

I already got the free console with a preorder of Duke Nukem Forever(which in and of itself looks like it might have been a mistake) and got The Ball for $5 and Metro 2033 for $10 previously.

wow lol i like how it needs to be 10$. would buying the playback package for 9.99$ be fine or does that single cent really prevent me from the deal?

and if i cant get the 9.99$ deal to count. wut other options would you prefer or have done? also considering the deal combimations? thx

Rct316, I believe its been said $9.99 doesn't cut it, so you'd need to get your order over the $10 mark to have it count.

You could always just do the 9.99 playpack and another 3-day play pass for another game that is not in the monthly playpack. Dirt 2's 3-day playpass is only $3.99.

Does it have to be 1 single item totalling $10 or more or can it be a few? Would the playpack plus a rental really work?? Has anyone tried this?

Both of these things have already been answered multiple times in the last two pages if either of you had bothered to read them.

Yes, 9.99 < 10.00 for this deal. There is no "take a penny/leave a penny" cup like at a gas station. Spend $10 or more. It couldn't be more clear.

You can buy more than one thing as well and have it count as well, cumulative purchases of any type count as long as you follow the rule from above and spend $10 or more.

I grabbed Split/Second. Getting two coupons was worth it. The $10 playpass isn't going anywhere (it'll just get better, if the service is to be believed), and this 50% isn't going to last.
I really hope the Witcher 2 comes soon. I could see OnLive as a great opportunity as someone whose gaming pc is "just ok." I don't care about most console games on it, since I have both an Xbox and a PS3 for that. :P

Does the 100% coupon work for preorders? I was going to buy Dawn of War II anyway but if I can get Space Marine for free (since you can preorder it) that would be kickass

Otherwise I will just get another game or the system

They havent said, but its safe to assume it will be less than 30 days since the 50% off coupon with Split/Second and Pure is only good for a month.

$49.99.

Here's the link to the web store to buy. If you only want the controller, just click on the Order Now button, and then make sure you UNCHECK the OnLive Game System, as it's checked automatically.

Better of just using a wired xbox 360 controller if you have one around and dont mind the wire. $49.99 for a controller is steep when most people are getting the console for free. The Onlive controller is of very good quality though.

So I ordered 2 games separately. This will give me two coupons. Definitely going to use the first one on the console since my computer is mostly trash, but any suggestions for the second coupon?
