From today until March 14th, if users of the OnLive gaming service pre-order Homefront you will also receive a promo code for the full version of Metro 2033 and, until quantities run out, an OnLive game system for free (save for shipping, handling, and taxes).

From the press release:

“This is a watershed event: It’s the first time a game system has ever been given away with the purchase of a game,” said OnLive Founder and CEO Steve Perlman. “Homefront is one of the biggest games coming out this quarter, and we wanted gamers to see just how incredible is to have the hottest title playable with the instant-play, massive spectating experience on their HDTV that is only possible through OnLive. So, for the same money you’d spend pre-ordering Homefront on any platform, gamers get the platform with the game (and Metro 2033 to keep you busy till launch date). Quantities are limited. Get ‘em while their hot!”

All the fine print stuff

What is OnLive?

And it works quite well. I've been in the beta since last year. Games run in very high quality with no effort from my computer. I'm interested to see how it will look on my television in high def. with the game system I'll be getting from this.
