London, UK. —19 April 2012 — OnLive, Inc., the pioneer of on-demand cloud gaming, announced today that its groundbreaking PlayPack subscription service now offers unlimited, on-demand play of more than 200 incredible console-class games on nearly any device, including dozens of AAA titles with 80+ Metacritic ratings. To celebrate, OnLive is hosting PlayPack 200: 200 hours of nonstop festivities for OnLive fans and newcomers alike, including 200-minute multiplayer events, the PlayPack 200 Sweepstakes and an introductory PlayPack offer featuring one month’s access to all 200+ games for just 200 pence. The limited-time promotion delivers unbelievable value, making hundreds of top-tier titles accessible on PCs, Mac® computers, TVs with the OnLive® Game System, and even Android® tablets for less than the price of a sandwich. After the first month, subscribers can continue to play all these games on demand for just £6.99/month, with new titles added weekly[i].

The OnLive PlayPack is already an incredible value in gaming, featuring everything from blockbuster single and multiplayer games such as Homefront™, F.E.A.R. 3, BioShock, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Just Cause 1 and 2, Borderlands™ and the just added Red Faction: Armageddon, to SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive retro hits, to popular indie titles such as World of Goo and Space Pirates and Zombies (added today as well). Unlike 90-minute on-demand movies that you might watch once and forget about, PlayPack games offer hours of incredible single-player modes, and many have social-rich multiplayer modes that can last for months on end. And, because the games are hosted in the cloud, subscribers can enjoy unique social features like group voice chat, spectate other players across the world, share achievements and Brag Clip™ videos of their gameplay on Facebook, and even invite friends to jump directly into games they’re playing with instant-launch from their Facebook wall. That’s a lot of entertainment packed into one subscription—with no discs, downloads or specialized hardware needed to enjoy it. PlayPack subscribers simply sign in and play from anywhere[ii], picking up their games whenever they want, from exactly where they left off, and they can check out new additions weekly without paying anything more. The growing list of PlayPack games is available at

The PlayPack 200 Celebration runs from today through Saturday, 28 April  (7:59am BST). Here are some of the highlights:

·         PlayPack 200 Sweepstakes: Receive an entry for every PlayPack game you play for a minimum of 200 seconds each.[iii]Prizes include tablets and controllers!
