The cloud gaming service could disappear.
The gaming streaming service OnLive could have fired all their staff, reported Mashable using sources close to the situation, but so far have not confirmed this news.
OnLive is cloud gaming service focused on bringing Internet-connected devices, mainly phones and tablets, to games running on their servers. The user receives the video signal with a high response rates, and it minimizes the delay or lag times almost imperceptible.
According to these rumors, the company would have had a meeting today announcing that the entire team was fired. Some employees would be hired again for a new direction, that has not yet revealed.
The latest announcement of OnLive was that it had agreed to a new deal with the new console Ouya-based for Android operating system, which would provide service. There was also plans to release a device with Vizio.
According to sources consulted by Mashable, employees blame the debacle to its president, who repeatedly refused to sell the company. One of the interested was Sony that opted for its rival, Gaikai, co-founded by David Perry, the famous game developer in the 90′s. Although no plays have yet been announced for the company, it is expected to reach the service of consoles such as the PlayStation Portable, as well as televisions and other online platforms. OnLive criticized precisely this acquisition as they claimed this ensures that it “misses the point of gaming in the cloud.”
