“OnLive will utterly transform gaming in the UK,” said the service’s Founder and CEO Steve Perlman. “No discs, big downloads or specialised hardware needed. OnLive gives you the latest games instantly, anytime, anywhere on HDTV, PC, Mac, as well as iPad, Android tablets.

He added that OnLive will make “high-performance gaming as accessible as streaming video, with unique social features such as massive spectating with voice chat and Facebook integration.”

Whilst the UK pricing plans have yet to be confirmed, OnLive has revealed that British gamers will be able to make use of the company’s PlackPack Bundle service giving unlimited access to a library of more than 70 games. Pricing details are to be announced at launch.

With subscribers able to enjoy their gaming from a variety of locations, OnLive is to make the OnLive Game System available in the UK allowing users to connect the service to any HDTV. To mark the launch thousands of OnLive Game Systems will be given away free at the Eurogamer Expo.
