Not as I understand it. There is a rental service that I suppose would be the equivalent of a digital Gamefly but you can straight up buy the game and have it permanently linked to your Onlive account. About 2 months ago Onlive hit 10,000 "likes" on Facebook and as a result they decided to offer any game on there service for a dollar. I bought DE:HR and there are no recurring fees. I can play it whenever I want.Crono1973 said:Yes, bring the rip-off to consoles.
Unless things have changed, isn't this how OnLive works: You buy (rent) a game for the same price that you would pay on Steam but you have to pay a subscription fee to access it. You stop paying that subscription fee, you lose access to the game?
Who in their right mind would do that?
I agree that it would be stupid on consoles though. The point of a console is that they all have the same tech so I don't understand why the system would have trouble playing a game that it was designed for. Which is what OnLive was made in mind for; shit computers.
