In the battle of the cloud gaming companies Gaikai, headed up by Earthworm Jim designer Dave Perry, is the clear winner.
Last month Sony shelled out a whopping $300 million for the company. Last Friday OnLive collapsed, sacking half its staff and selling all its assets to a new investor amid reports of just 1800 concurrent users.
This morning, cloud gaming's star seems dimmed. But for Sony, proud owner of Gaikai, its belief in the potential for the tech remains unhindered.
"Definitely we see huge potential that cloud gaming can bring to the PlayStation ecosystem," Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida told Eurogamer at Gamescom last week.
