With the launch of OnLive today, comes news of a partnership with GAME Group PLC, which will see the micro-consoles sold in-store and online.

The OnLive Game System, OnLive Universal Wireless Controller and OnLive Game Service digital offerings will be extended through the Group's 615 UK stores and integrated with the Group's loyalty schemes, the GAME Reward Card and gamestation Elite card.

A flurry of UK launch promotions are in store for new UK OnLive members:

- First-time OnLive purchasers can get their first OnLive PlayPass Game for just £1, a £39.99 value

- BT broadband customers can get 100+ PlayPack Games for FREE for 3 months in addition to the OnLive PlayPass £1 game offer, a £20.97 value

- Eurogamer Expo attendees can get a FREE OnLive Game System (while supplies last), a £69.99 value

very peculiar that GAME would support a competitor in this way?

I recall a recent story where gamestop in america actually opened up new copies of deus ex and removed onlive game codes.
I'd guess there is going to be a lot of upset individuals who rush out and buy this new tech only to realise their connections are not upto scratch etc, and a lot of broadband upgrades, maybe they should have partnered with BT instead, it would have made more sense.
