This is not a surprise to me. I'm sure it is not a surprise to most people. The truth is OnLive just isn't very good. I won't go into great detail because I already did a somewhat detailed review of OnLive here: http://www.atariage....t/#entry2434432
There are people who have paid a considerable amount to add games to their OnLive account. I feel bad for them but they knew the risk they were taking. Overall I think this service will be quickly forgotten. Now I'm going to go watch some videos of Sega Channel and cry.

Digital only Media should be a fad and nothing more.

Looks like it's in a bad spot, but not shuttered. Hopefully OnLive will improve from this, because their performance lately has been driving me away. I'm a physical media fan, but I've been a fan of OnLive's low prices, and honesty about the temporary nature of their product (even if it's frequently misunderstood on their own fan forums). I treat OnLive as a low-cost arcade, and it delivers on that.
We can now confirm that the assets of OnLive, Inc. have been acquired into a newly-formed company and is backed by substantial funding, and which will continue to operate the OnLive Game and Desktop services, as well as support all of OnLive's apps and devices, as well as game, productivity and enterprise partnerships. The new company is hiring a large percentage of OnLive, Inc.'s staff across all departments and plans to continue to hire substantially more people, including additional OnLive employees. All previously announced products and services, including those in the works, will continue and there is no expected interruption of any OnLive services.
High user count but low concurrent users is the ideal model for this kind of setup.
They only averaged 1800 concurrent users at a time? How did they stay around this long?

That guy that kept making new OnLive threads and was advocating for it to get its own forum here must be going nuts.

Why would Ouya even bother partnering with OnLive? They are 2 different things.

As for onlive going out, yeah, who didn't see that coming. Yeah, it sucks, but I said it when it came out. And unlike Xbox live, you don't have anythign to show for it when the service is pulled (at least, till the console dies)

I only hope this serves as a reminder as to why cloud based anything is garbage and should go away as quickly as it came.
