OnLive early adopters get first year free

First 25,000 sign-ups also get free game.

OnLive is offering the first 25,000 people who pre-registered for the game-streaming service a free year's subscription and a free game.

Big Download discovered the unaccountably generous offer via an email, having signed up for pre-registration earlier this year when the early-adopters offer was just three free months.

If you aren't already one of these lucky not-so-few, too bad - OnLive is not taking any more sign-ups before it launches in the US on 17th June.

OnLive recently announced an exclusive partnership with BT in the UK. Launch plans will be reveaked later this year.
