    Does it work with a pre-order of LA Noire?

    They did restrict it to no pre-orders, so you're only allowed to get games currently in their library.

    Yeah... But it's OnLive which means I won't actually own the game.

    Pretty sweet. Anyone from Canada succeed in getting this?

    I can easily create a proxy into the US to sign up, but I'll be playing from Canada because I don't want to tunnel so many gigs through my proxy...so will that be a problem?

    If I "buy" the game for my account in the US, will I be able to use it in Canada?

    Their fine print states "only valid while playing the game in the US" so I am wary... :(

    If you get screwed on $1 and are only able to play Deus Ex HR for 2 years, I think you'll manage to survive. You also don't own any of your Steam or Origin games. So I think the return on investment for your $1 should be a no brainer.
