OnLive compatible device, with full saved game data intact in the
cloud, whenever and wherever they want.
Games can be demoed free and purchased or rented a la carte.
Players can also subscribe to the OnLive PlayPack for unlimited
play of more than 200 games, with more titles added monthly. OnLive
also offers free access to unique social features such as game
spectating in the OnLive Arena, recording ten-second Brag
