“OnLive is delighted to partner with Square Enix in presenting Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the first video game disc packaged with a free cloud gaming copy,” said Steve Perlman, president and CEO of OnLive. “Gamers get the best of both worlds—a physical copy for their home PC and an OnLive cloud gaming copy for instant-play anywhere on an HDTV, PC, Mac, and soon iPad and Android tablets. Having the option of local or cloud gaming provides unprecedented value and convenience that has never before been available for high-performance AAA titles. ”
