OnLive, the on-demand, cloud-based gaming console, announced today that the service will be adding wi-fi support (in beta form) on Labor Day.

"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 Mike McGarvey, OnLive’s COO. “We’re continuing to add new features and enhance the service, as well as expand the list of top new release games."

In addition to wi-fi, the company will be offering 50 percent off on all games available on the service over Labor Day weekend. In addition, it's extending its AT&T Founding Members Program, a limited time offer of a free one-year membership to the service. (For all the fine print on the Founding Members Program, go here)
