We write a lot about cloud-based music, but the games industry is also eyeing new online distribution models for its content. OnLive is one of the companies touting cloud-gaming services, and announced yesterday that it will launch tomorrow (Thursday) with 10 games including big titles like Assassin’s Creed 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum and NBA 2K10. OnLive members will buy the games and play them online on central servers, which stream the graphics to the player’s PC, and their actions back up. Users will pay $4.95 a month for the service, but will then pay separately for each game they play at prices similar to the cost of boxed games in retail. Which, it could be argued, is a strange decision. Source: VentureBeat
