OnLive relaunches with Cloudlift service

OnLive has announced that it is relaunching with a new CloudLift subscription service which works by linking the player’s game library with his or her OnLive account and syncing cloud saves automatically. 

Players can play games locally on their gaming PC when they’re at home, or sign into OnLive on any device when on the go, and continue the same game right where they left off, no matter where they are. This gives gamers instant access to the full game experience on multiple platforms, even those on which the game is not normally supported, such as tablets, lightweight laptops, Macs, TVs with the OnLive Game System or the VIZIO Co-Star, or on the LG Google TV. The CloudLift subscription works with supported games purchased from any digital download retailer and fully supports multiplayer gaming, so even titles without cloud saves benefit. To complement the CloudLift service, OnLive will also sell download codes. Purchase of a download code from OnLive will include a 7-day free trial of CloudLift, which makes OnLive the only digital download retailer that offers cloud play as an added benefit to game purchase.

“We’ve listened to our players. They want the convenience of instant access to their games wherever they are, but they also want to own the game and be able to play it locally on their home PC. With this new offering, we’re continuing to expand on the compatibility, freedom and instant access our users enjoy, with the added flexibility of owning a local copy of their games,” said Mark Jung, OnLive’s Executive Chairman.

OnLive CloudLift is launching a lineup of games that include Batman: Arkham Origins, Saints Row IV and acclaimed indie title Type:Rider. Other titles on the way include Europa Universalis IV, F1 2013 and more. Subscriptions are available for £9.99 GBP a month, with a free 7-day trial. OnLive will also continue to offer the PlayPack subscription for £6.99 a month, which delivers instant access to more than 250 games, streamed to any OnLive compatible device.

In addition to the above, Onlive has also launched a new OnLive Go business line, bringing the benefits of cloud gaming such as instant launch and mobile compatibility to MMOs and virtual world experiences. By providing an instant-start option at registration or including the title in PlayPack, OnLive Go can offer consumers immediate access to a game, eliminating hours of download time, getting players into the game on the spot and improving conversion rates. OnLive Go also adds mobility to graphics-rich applications that require a powerful computer, enabling users to enjoy a high-quality experience on lower-end laptops, Macs and tablets for Android.

What do you think of this news? Is OnLive something that appeals to you?

It failed the first time and I think it will fail again, the online infrastructure just isn't there yet
