PES 2012 launches on OnLive, prizes up for grabs

Win free broadband and footy tickets for playing

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.
