OnLive, the online game streaming service, is closing its doors. Apparently Sony acquired important parts of the service and is shutting the service down. Everybody who purchased games and content from the service before February 1, 2015 will lose all of their content and not be refunded. Luckily, if you purchased Steam games on OnLive, they’ll still be available on Steam.
I personally don’t know anybody who has used the service but for those who have, this definitely is a pretty big stinker. We’ve known for a while now that OnLive was having financial problems and probably wouldn’t last. If I had to guess, Sony bought them to implement some of the tech into their own service. Who knows though. What are your thoughts on this?
