OnLive a bargain at $4.8 million

by: Simon HillOctober 11, 2012

In effect there were mass lay-offs and the assets were sold to venture capitalist Gary Lauder for $4.8 million.

Cloud gaming shake up: Sony acquires Gaikai, integrates OnLive on its upcoming Google TV

by: LucianJuly 2, 2012

There are two important cloud gaming services right now: OnLive and Gaikai. And it seems that Sony wants to integrate both of them into their current and future products.
