Selected three-day PlayPass titles will be available for activation from 29 October 2011 (12:00 AM BST) to 1 November 2011 (6:59 AM GMT) and will be good for unlimited access to the game for 72 hours from the time of activation.

All the games available on the OnLive service are streamed to you similarly to the way in which you watch movies on Netflix/online. OnLive has a minimum requirement of 2Mb/s, though 3Mb/s is recommended and 5Mb/s is preferred. About bandwidth caps; for example a 250GB bandwidth cap would give you approximately 150 to 300 hours of gameplay a month, depending on what you’re doing on the service. Some companies have limits as low as 60GB or less a month, and if this is similar to what you have then OnLive probably won’t work out well for you with that ISP.
