Sony Computer Entertainment has acquired the technology patents behind streaming service OnLive.

Onlive has been out for years. More user friendly for players than gaikai.
It allowed you to play console games on mobile technology. Clap Clap Sony.
This should of been your first takeover….
I completely forgotten about onlive. Remember seeing commercials for it a
few years ago.
Didn’t they just buy gaikai for PlayStation now
sony is only acquiring their assets so they can terminate it
yayy now ps now(eventually) will start running at optimal resolution.. no
Sony is showing its power to all gaming industry, fear us xtwats your
Toiletbox one doesn’t have cloud gaming like we do ,go cry to Microosft so
they might add something new to toiletbox one
this is why you don’t buy games on cloud services.
Future news, series of hacks on Sony Live technology ; Sony is closing down
the onLive Technology.
How many more generations do you guys think we have until we have strictly
streaming consoles? (I think we’re two generations away.)
“Bu-but Sony is broke dough”
It seems like Xtwats can’t catch a break.
So what does this mean?
Why do Sony need Gaikai and OnLive :/
Onlive never reached European shores.
noooooooooooo!!! first they took away gaikai, now they’re taking away
onlive. Come on those are the best things ever. Gaikai revolutionized high
fidelity browser based gaming and onlive boosted cloud gaming as a whole.
All were free. And all sony wants to do is shut down the services and make
it playstation only and subscription based. Man, stop sony! Just turn them

If only Steve Perlman didn’t let his ego and pride get in the way of
business, this could’ve been completely avoided a LONG time ago. From what
I understand, Steve wanted to have EA games on his service (remember they
were removed for some time) and to have them exclusively; he thought that
was the case.
But then along came Gaikai with EA games on their service… so, Steve
flipped out, literally, said to have flipped a table in the back room of
the OnLive booth at a games/software convention (forget which) in a rage at
the news, and vowed to deny EA and their catalogue access to his service.
This is essentially where the fall of OnLive started.
