OnLive a bargain at $4.8 million

by: Simon HillOctober 11, 2012
The cloud gaming service OnLive was in a pretty bad way in the lead up to its acquisition. There were mounting debts heading for the $20 million mark and disappointed investors like HTC were not about to pour more money in. In the end OnLive took a bankruptcy alternative that allowed it to liquidate its assets. In effect there were mass lay-offs and the assets were sold to venture capitalist Gary Lauder for $4.8 million.

OUYA passes the $6 million funding mark, partners with Vevo for music video hub

by: LucianAugust 1, 2012

OUYA is approaching the end of the funding campaign, with 7 days left to donate if you want to help them succeed or “pre-order” an OUYA console for yourself. In the past few days the company has announced partnerships with OnLive and Square Enix for Final Fantasy 3, and now it’s announcing another major partnership, although this one doesn’t have much to do with gaming, but with music. Vevo has agreed to make its music videos available to OUYA users, which  make OUYA a media device rather than just a gaming device.

To celebrate the passing of the $6 million mark, which is more than 6 times its original goal of [...]

OUYA to get access to OnLive games

How HTC didn’t meet “financial commitments” to Beats Audio

by: LucianJuly 24, 2012

I think HTC made quite a few financial mistakes last year, and the outcomes of those mistakes are starting to appear this year. Besides other strategic mistakes that led to the sharp decrease of their market share and profits in US and Europe, like releasing too many “no-name” models with no long-term branding, they also made some very bad investments last year.

That includes the $40 million they paid to OnLive, and I still haven’t seen anything coming out of that yet. They probably thought that their tablets will take off and their customers will want to play those games on their tablets. But nobody [...]
