Now that OnLive
, details have emerged on Eurogamer.net
outlining how much games will cost on the service, in addition to OnLive fees (which are not being charged yet). They show Brain Challenge for $4.99, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin for $19.99, Just Cause 2 for $49.99, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction for $59.99. Those are all pretty much in line for the prices for those games at retail, except in this case you will need to maintain your OnLive subscription to keep playing these games, and even then, access to these titles is only certain for the next three years, as they all carry a "rental duration" which reads: "Until at least 17th June 2013."

TERMS OF SERVICE
Last updated: May 25, 2010
Welcome to the OnLive® Game Service (the “Service” or “SERVICE”), a service of OnLive, Inc. (collectively, “OnLive” or “ONLIVE” or “we” or “us”). The OnLive Terms of Service (the “Terms”) govern our relationship with anyone who accesses the Service.
2. Community Guidelines
In order to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all of our users, we have established certain ground rules regarding your behavior on the Service that are specified in the OnLive Community Guidelines, which is incorporated herein by reference. The OnLive Community Guidelines apply to any and all User Generated Content (as defined in Section 9 below) that you contribute to the Service. Violation of the OnLive Community Guidelines may subject your OnLive Service Account (“Account” or “ACCOUNT”) to termination or suspension and/or subject you to legal action.
In order to use the Service, you must be at least 18 years of age and a current resident of the contiguous United States. You represent and warrant to OnLive that you meet the eligibility criteria in the preceding sentence.
4. Accepting and Changing the Terms
You can accept the Terms by (a) clicking to accept or agree to the Terms upon completion of Account registration or (b) accessing the Service. If you do not accept the Terms in the manner described in clause (a) but nevertheless access the Service, you will be deemed to have accepted the Terms upon such access of the Service.
We may change the Terms at any time in our sole discretion. All changes to the Terms will come into effect 15 days after the posting of such changes unless we choose to secure your immediate acceptance of revised Terms via a click-through confirmation or acceptance button. We will notify you of any changes to the Terms by announcing the changes when you start the Service or we may choose to inform users of substantial changes via email. Continued use of the Service after the 15-day notice period, regardless of whether we have contacted you regarding such changes and regardless of whether you have read the changes we have made available to you, will constitute acceptance of the Terms.
5. Third Party Terms
Buying or accessing certain third party content on the Service may require you to review, and accept or decline certain third party disclosures, policies, and agreements including but not limited to third party end user license agreements, privacy policies, and terms of service (“Third Party Terms”).

You can accept Third Party Terms by (a) entering your password to purchase access to or to use the third party content on the Service, (b) accessing the purchased or selected third party content through the Service, or (c) any other reasonable means by which OnLive, in its sole discretion, deems appropriate. If you do not accept Third Party Terms in the manner described in clause (a) but you nevertheless access the Service, you will be deemed to have accepted Third Party Terms upon such access of the third party content. If you choose to decline any Third Party Terms, you may do so by not purchasing the third party content referenced by the Third Party Terms or otherwise declining the Third Party Terms as provided by OnLive or the third party providing the Terms.

Such statements within Third Party Terms are not applicable to use of the third party content on the Service.
In all Third Party Terms, the user agreeing to, and/or the user presented with Third Party Terms will in all cases continue to be the consumer end user of the third party content.
