Cloud-based games platform Onlive, which runs games on servers farms and streams inputs and outputs over the internet, was launched in the US late last week, meaning we've finally got a look at the full pricing options.

The prices for Onlive games are shown below, via Eurogamer, and come in three forms - three or five day rental passes or 'unlimited access' passes which last until June 2013. Users also have to pay a subscription to use the Onlive service at all and not all games are available with every type of rental pass.

Users can only access games they have paid for so long as their Onlive subscription remains active - if you cancel your sub then you lose access to games, regardless of whether your rental period has expired or not. Subscriptions cost $14.95 USD per month.

Onlive is set to launch in the UK in late 2011, with BT gaining the exclusive rights to bundle the service with broadband packages.

Demos are available for all of the below games, except for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands.
