Cloud gaming service OnLive is to run a wireless test, it was announced today.

“Wi-Fi support has been the most requested feature among OnLive members, so we made it a top development priority and were able to roll out a beta version ahead of schedule,” said OnLive COO Mike McGarvey.

“We’re continuing to add new features and enhance the service, as well as expand the list of top new release games.”

OnLive currently requires a wired connection to play.

Further, games will be 50 percent cheaper over the Labor Day weekend of September 4–6,

Sign ups to OnLive’s Founding Members Program have also been extended to December 31.

This includes a free one year membership to the OnLive, with an optional second year at $5 per month.

OnLive launched in the US in June, and was recently reported to be worth $1.1 billion.
