OnLive MicroConsole - 1

The long-awaited OnLive MicroConsole ships Dec'2 for $99, and includes a free game (games typically cost the same as retail boxed versions, around $49) and a wireless game controller, which skips the computer altogether and streams games directly to your TV, finally has a release date and price.

OnLive MicroConsole

Games include a decent selection of current titles, such as Mafia II, Assassin's Creed II, and Borderlands. Titles can be rented for a few dollars for a few days, or purchased outright (although you're actually buying a license to play the game on OnLive's servers, "while it's available on the OnLive gamer service," which the company says will be until at least June 2013 for the games currently listed).
