OnLive and Green Man Gaming in First Ever B2C Channel Partnership for Cloud Gaming

Green Man Gaming Confirmed as First Reseller of OnLive Subscriptions

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/25/14 -- OnLive, the leader in cloud gaming, and Green Man Gaming today announced a new channel partnership. For the first time, customers will be able to purchase OnLive® Game Service subscriptions outside of the OnLive ecosystem, making Green Man Gaming the first online retailer to offer OnLive's 'play anywhere' subscriptions to its customers.

From later today, the new OnLive Games Bundle subscription, priced at £ 8.95/$12.95/EUR 9.99, will be available from Green Man Gaming, as well as a free 3-day 'no commitment' trial for all its customers. Customers will also be able to exchange Green Man Gaming rewards for access to OnLive's services.

The great-value OnLive Games Bundle subscription combines all the features of OnLive's PlayPack and CloudLift subscriptions, whilst giving players a 25% saving on the individual packages. This means gamers get the best of all worlds:

  • Unlimited instant access to a library of over 250 hit games.
  • Turn any OnLive-compatible device into a powerful gaming rig (includes low-powered laptops, Mac, TV, Android consoles, tablets and smartphones).
  • Play the latest PC games anywhere, without having to download or install, even if they don't own a gaming PC.
  • Instant access to MMOGs like War Thunder, running silky smooth on OnLive's game servers.
  • Great cloud-only features like global spectating and Brag Clips.

Details of all available games can be found here http://games.onlive.com/games#selectGamebundle

"Our core mission is to always go beyond a sale," said Paul Sulyok, CEO at Green Man Gaming. "Offering our customers the ability to now play their games wherever they like on multiple platforms, as well as welcoming a new audience to Green Man Gaming thanks to OnLive's subscription services makes this not just a very exciting partnership, but makes it a great time to be a gamer!"

Rick Sanchez, VP of Product Marketing for OnLive added: "We've been tremendously impressed by how Green Man Gaming works for its community, continuously shaping their offerings to a seemingly individual level. We see a great fit for OnLive with Green Man Gaming's audience, which is why we've created a special free trial that will enable them to check OnLive out for themselves with no commitment, while trying out some of the all-time classic games they may have missed, as well as playing their latest games on different devices or when they're away from their gaming rig."

Since its launch in 2010, OnLive has empowered premium-quality gaming via the cloud on nearly any Mac® or PC computer and a wide range of thin client devices, including lightweight laptops, tablets, smart phones and TVs -- platforms that would normally lack the processing power and memory to run graphics intensive games and other applications. Users can enjoy the freedom and convenience of the OnLive Game Service, playing their games seamlessly across connected devices wherever they are.

The OnLive Game Service is already available in the USA, Canada, and the UK, and is currently rolling out in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway, The Netherlands, and Ireland. OnLive's CloudLift™ service costs £ 4.95/$7.95/EUR 5.95 per month, while the PlayPack™ service costs £ 6.95/$9.95/EUR 7.95 per month.

About Green Man Gaming and Playfire
Green Man Gaming, based in the heart of London, UK, is the global number two digital game retailer leading millions of gamers around the world into a new era of downloadable gaming.

Launched on May 10, 2010, Green Man Gaming started with a small catalogue of just 500 games from 26 publishers and a mission to always offer more than just a sale. By 2014, Green Man Gaming's catalogue had grown to over 5000 titles from over 350 official publishing partners and is still growing. Green Man Gaming has direct contracts as an officially approved retail partner with every publisher / developer that has a game listed on its site, so customers can buy with confidence.

In July 2012, Green Man Gaming acquired Playfire, a huge and vibrant global social network of core gamers. This service allows consumers to automatically track their in-game achievements, trophies and gameplay, as well as follow other gamers' achievements and conversations about the games they love. With its new Playfire Rewards BETA program, Green Man Gaming is incentivising gameplay and encouraging users to earn their way to new games and content by offering credit to spend on anything on the Green Man Gaming store. To date, Green Man Gaming has given out over one million rewards, which change daily (details of which can be found on the Playfire Blog).

Listed in the SVC2UK top 100 companies with the potential to reach £ 100m in revenue within three to five years, Green Man Gaming was named as one of The Sunday Times Tech 100 "Ones to Watch" and is also a member of the Future Fifty; the 50 hottest high growth technology companies that the Government would like to encourage to IPO.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
