Interested in OnLive? Grab a clean pair: there’s “big news” incoming relating to the cloud service.

The firm tweeted earlier:

Keep an eye on Steve’s keynote address this Wednesday at GamesBeat@GDC. Big events call for big news…

That keynote happens to be that of OnLive CEO Steve Perlman, who’s due to give an address tomorrow at Gamesbeat@GDC.

Chances are the big news could be a release date of sorts, or an open beta: the service has been in closed beta since September.

OnLive was announced at GDC this time last year.

Thanks, CVG.
