Is this the end of dedicated PC gaming rigs? Maybe not but OnLive is still trying to offer cloud based online gaming. The system will launch on June 17th, 2010 for Mac and PC at a cost of $15 per month. For that price, gamers will be able to access the service and download its free content such as demos.

However, games will cost extra. Each purchase or rental will carry an extra charge.

OnLive is promising the ability to play games at full 1080p at 60 frames per second using their own networked gaming systems. They're promising that people will be able to play the latest PC games on any system connected to the internet. All the tough rendering work is done back at OnLive HQ while your computer does nothing but handle the internet connection.

As a special offer, OnLive is waving the subscription fee for three months for the first 25,000 subscribers.
