Flailing game streaming Service, Onlive, have sold its patents to Sony and are shutting down their service on April 30th. Onlive have issued the following Statement:
"Following the termination of the company's services and related products, OnLive will engage in an orderly wind-down of the company and cease operations,"
Onlive has always struggled to maintain a viable business as gamers have not taken to paying a subscription for their games. The question is can Sony do what Onlive has not with Playstation Now? Backwards Compatible have been using the Beta of Playstation Now and it does make a better alternative to Onlive in quality and ease, but is this enough to pay the prices Sony are asking for older games? Gamers will decide with their wallets, but Sony are making sure they are the only place to go, just in case.
