Check this out:
* OnLive members who pre-order Homefront between Feb. 25 and March 14 will receive a free OnLive Game System ($99 value; while supplies last) …
* …AND free immediate access to another THQ futuristic thrill ride, Metro 2033.
How it works:
Players can sign up for the OnLive Game Service free at www.onlive.com. From the service, they can pre-order Homefront, which will be available through OnLive the moment it is released on all other platforms on March 15, 2011. Upon completion of a pre-order, the member will receive an email containing a promotional code enabling the purchase of a Full PlayPass to Metro 2033 immediately free of charge. When Homefront launches, the member will receive a promotional code for a full $99 discount on the OnLive Game System and will need only to pay applicable taxes and shipping fees.
Quote from Steve Perlman:
“This is a watershed event: It’s the first time a game system has ever been given away with the purchase of a game,” said OnLive Founder and CEO Steve Perlman. “Homefront is one of the biggest games coming out this quarter, and we wanted gamers to see just how incredible is to have the hottest title playable with the instant-play, massive spectating experience on their HDTV that is only possible through OnLive. So, for
the same money you’d spend pre-ordering Homefront on any platform, gamers get the platform with the game (and Metro 2033 to keep you busy till launch date). Quantities are limited. Get ’em while their hot!”
