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.

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.
