PES 2012 has launched on cloud gaming service OnLive today, it's been confirmed.
The Konami footy effort was confirmed for release on OnLive earlier this month for £29.99 with joypad and keyboard/mouse support.
To celebrate, OnLive's offering those who play PES 2012 before February 1 entry in to a BT-sponsored PES 2012 giveaway, with prizes including (in OnLive's words):
- Gamers who play for 3 or more hours before 11:59 P.M. GMT 31 January will be automatically entered to win one of two Grand Prizes, a pair of luxury box seat tickets to a top-tier match at the Emirates on 10 March. Runners Up prizes include an Option 3 BT broadband line, with free broadband for 12 months (5 winners) and an OnLive Gaming Pack, including the winner's choice of an OnLive Game System or a recently released Universal OnLive Wireless Controller, Full PlayPass to any game (excluding pre-order promotions), OnLive beanie and PES t-shirt (3 winners).
- Gamers who play the free demo or play for less than 3 hours before 11:59 P.M. GMT 31 January will be automatically entered to win one of 10 OnLive Gaming Packs, including a Universal OnLive Wireless Controller, a copy of PES 2012, an OnLive beanie and PES t-shirt.
Speaking to CVG at OnLive's UK launch, VP of games & media John Spinale acknowledged that signing up a footy game was one of the problems left to overcome for the service.
"We're rolling out in the UK and thus far we have amazing games but we don't have a football game. That's something that we'll certainly be fixing," he said at the time.
