I’m a fan of what OnLive and Gaikai set out to accomplish. I am confident their vision of streaming games will happen – I’m just not sure when.
OnLive CEO & Founder Departs
With all sorts of changes going on over at OnLive, the CEO and founder of the company, Stever Perlman, has been removed from his position.
OnLive Acquired - Service Unaffected
The cloud gaming firm, OnLive, has been acquired and will operate as a “newly formed company”.
I think it kind of defeats the purpose of cloud gaming to limit it to a subset of devices.
Here are some new screenshots for the upcoming RPG, South Park: The Stick of Truth. The game so far looks identical to what you would see on your TV in an episode of the popular comedy cartoon. The best thing about this game though is that you’re in control of it all. The Stick of Truth is set for release on March 5th 2013.
OnLive Support for Xperia Play
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play has now received support for OnLive. The cloud gaming’s Android app has received an update which enables control via the device’s PlayStation certified controls.
The packaged goods business, while still flourishing and strong, eventually – as we’ve seen in music and movies – will go to the cloud.
