OnLive streaming gaming service launching in June

OnLive, the company that has created an on-demand gaming system, that it believes will change console gaming, has announced that it will launch its service in June.

First announced at the Game Developers Conference in 2009, the company has used this GDC to give more information about the system that hopes to radically change the way we play games in the future.

According to the company, gamers will only need to plug in the company's OnLive MicroConsole TV Adapter to work the system.

So far Electronic Arts, Ubisoft 2K Games, THQ and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have all signed up to launch games on the OnLive platform.

Starting on 17 June 2010, the OnLive game service will be available to early registrants in the US for $14.95 a month.

Individual game titles will be available for purchase or rent on an à la carte basis, with specific game pricing to be announced prior to the consumer launch event at E3, says the company.

While launch titles will be announced prior to E3 in Los Angeles, a few of the anticipated games include Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age Origins, Assassin's Creed II, Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands, Borderlands and Metro 2033.
