OnLive Offers Labor Day Weekend Fragging On The Cheap

This long weekend, most of us will be down by the lake enjoying noodle salad. However, some will spend the upcoming long weekend bidding adieu to the sunny summer by brewing up a symphony that features the dulcet sound of pew-pew-pew. If you belong to the latter group, this post is for you: On-demand cloud gaming service OnLive is discounting all of their cloud-based gaming offerings by half over the Labor Day Weekend.


In addition to the low cost of OnLive’s already reasonably priced streaming fun extravaganza, the much talked about video game mongers will also be making their AT&T Founding Members program available to users once again. For those not familiar with the Founding Members Program, it’s a pretty straight forward arrangement: Those interested in getting their game on can sign up for a year’s free service with OnLive. After the year has ended, they’ll be able to continue to use the service at the low cost of .95 per month. Not too shabby at all.

In addition, you’ll also be able to enjoy a significant upgrade to Onlive’s offering of services, like the ability to play over WiFi. For all of the gamers out there that prefer to play sans wires, this is great news.

With options like that to keep you busy and indoors during the long weekend, you won’t even care that the sun’s shining.
