OnLive launches PlayPack subscription service

Cloud gaming service OnLive officially launches its all-you-can-play monthly subscription service.

Expanding its game offerings in terms of both payment structure and game library, cloud gaming service OnLive announced that its all-you-can-play PlayPack service officially launched today.

For $9.99 a month, the PlayPlack subscription service lets you play as many games as you want, as much as you want. The list of games is separate from those available from its a la carte plan, and the PlayPack titles skew toward older mass market games, as well as some lesser-known indie titles.

OnLive lists 38 titles among the current PlayPack offering, including Lego Batman, 2008's Tomb Raider: Underworld, NBA 2K10, and the original BioShock. The oldest title appears to be the 2000 edition of Aliens vs. Predator, but most games are more recent. OnLive also says it will be adding more games to the list in the future, and that the initial month of the service is free to try.
