Flailing OnLive Sold For Only $4.8m

Oh crikey. You may remember in August that online game streaming service, OnLive, was in a spot of bother. Stories of impending bankruptcy came on the heels of a company that had previously been valued at an extraordinary $1.8bn.

RPS Asks: Cloud Gaming = PC Gaming?

Pay attention, students - here's your homework for today. Cloud gaming services such as OnLive and Gaikai: discuss. They're on the rise, and approaching the point where they're not just a fascinating gimmick but a viable way of playing high-end games at reasonable graphical quality. But what do they mean for PC gaming? Indeed, can they be considered PC gaming? And most of all -…

OnLive Drops Subs Model

Cloud gaming service OnLive has been, well, live for a while now. Yesterday it was announced that once the first free year is up, it will remain free, with no introduction of a subscription on top of the cost of the games, as I believe a number of you predicted when this was originally announced. We’re excited because this opens the door for the OnLive…
