Maybe Playstation Now can work better. when i use onlive on my pc,
streaming is smooth. On playstation now? sluggish as shit.
no, i disagree with this opinion. i do not think they have acquired the
has there been any news of Microsoft making any attempt of trying to
improve/add to what they already have?
I like what Sony is doing.
I don’t get it. What did/will they do, exactly?
I honestly believe this is a smart power move because playstation now has
so much potential but it just isn’t quite there for me to pay what they’re
This move would make sense if Sony is planning on making a version of
Onlive for the PS3 and PS4, then selling PC games for them (since they’d
get a cut of the sales through Onlive). People could finally play
Civilization 5 on their console.
Lol Sony hahahah
Xbox and PC are collating when windows 10 comes beat that …..
I remember seeing a TV advertisement years ago for the “ON LIVE” streaming
console and I thought it was going to be so much fun to have. I also
thought it was going to tear down the Xbox 360 and stuff because I was like
11 so this was around 6 years ago I believe. What I do know for certain is
that it was shit! I hated everything about the damn thing and thought it
was just awful. I think I played it twice and went right back to my Xbox.
I came here for the free candy
Right patterns they just what to close down the competition
It’s kind of sad tho. I always hoped that Onlive would finally reduce the
ping and will take off. Oh well.
OK since PS4 can stream games now, can we stream PC game’s to it like WOW?
I would care about Onlive if GameSpy didn’t shut down. Mainly for
Homefront. PC still has 32 player severs but it isn’t always busy
Onlive was to ahead of it’s time. A company based solely on something the
world of gaming wasn’t ready and still isn’t with no back up plan.
wait, people use OnLive?
Wait this can’t be true. The Xbots told me that Sony is too broke to afford
This is great for the playstation now service, but sucks as Onlive had some
much potential when it first came out and it’s too bad it was never fully
Is Sony squashing onlive or adopting tech? I thought the amazing power of
gaikai was supposed the handle all this. Makes one wonder…
So now they own Gaikai and Onlive.
This is very common in the corporate world, eliminating competition along
with acquiring a competitors customer base. Possibly sony may also aquire
the software to stream over their own services as well.
i’m not a fanboy but this was a really smart move by sony
