OnLive Bought Out By Sony 3

Rest In Peace OnLive, after being up and running for just 5 years everyone’s fears have now come true. Those who paid into the OnLive service will lose access to the game’s they’ve paid for on April 30, 2015 as Sony’s purchase of their infrastructure finalizes and the cloud game streaming service is shut down for good. We all saw this coming a mile away, for a long time now the company has been struggling and it’s a miracle they even survived long enough to be acquired by Sony. Hopefully this serves as a warning for those attempting to make massive profit margins off of cloud-based gaming, though we sincerely doubt that. As for Sony’s acquirement it is currently unclear exactly what they plan to do with the OnLive technology but we offer a few speculations as well as run down the details of this industry news event in today’s RGN Podcast.
