OnLive Offers a Free Console with an 'Assassin's Creed Revelations' Pre-order

That's a $99 console free with a $49 game. No matter what you think of OnLive, that's a hell of a deal.

OnLive made a huge impression on the game industry when it was first announced and shown off at trade shows. OnLive turned out not to be the game-changer that many thought it would be, but the cloud based gaming service is still something to be admired in principle if not in practice.

Though you can play OnLive on your PC, the company also offers a small console that lets you stream directly to your TV. Normally it runs $99, but right now it's absolutely free to those who order 'Assassin's Creed Revelations.'

That's a $49 game with a free $99 console, which has to be one of the better deals we've seen recently. If you want to give it a go, you'll need to order to pre-order by November 19th directly from OnLive.
