The Rise of OnLive

As we all know, OnLive the cloud-gaming service first announced at GDC 2009, is a great service that anyone can benifit from. The only problem with OnLive is the it requires a bit too much of internet bandwidth, but with the upcoming Google Fiber, with the rise of competition by other Internet suppliers, internet speed won't be a problem anymore (Industry, Next-Gen, OnLive, OnLive, PC, Tech)

Onlive is Not the answer for cloud gaming....not yet atleast. Its a service that has been mismanaged and poorly run...and to be honest should be dead. This is not a flag ship or beacon of light for cloud service...merely a step forward for cloud gaming. If this platform manages to really right itself and make some actual investment in game exclusivity that makes being part of onlive worthwhile it might have a chance.

*rise* of onlive??? didn't they (more or less) go belly-up?

christ, it's like bizarro world where sony gets s**t on for being successful and onlive gets praised for failing miserably...

In what world has Sony been successful this generation? Their gaming division posted a 2.8 billion loss in May of this year, the Vita is under performing and they have as yet failed to make significant inroads into the tablet market. Sony has fallen a long way since the heights of the PS2.

I dare dare say Sony will turn things around but they need to ensure they turn up the heat on the Vita this Xmas and make damned sure the PS4 does not come late to market next year. If the Vita fails then where might it leave Sony and third party support for the PS4?

I look at my shelf and see a selection of fine PS3 only games. I look again and I see a fine working console with accessories, all Sony branded. Yep, it's been successful. I don't care about stock market. I'm a gamer not a shareholder.

Um, you know. There is no correlation between what you have in your house and whether or not that makes Sony successful. Sony is in the gaming business to make money. The day they forecast its not in their interests to make money they will exit gaming.

I only use onlive if I am unsure for a game and use the 30 min free demo. Also bought arkham asylum for .99 cents. And my brother bought the playpack for like 2 dollars. So I have no problems with them. Aside from my shitty internet, my onlive experiences have been pretty good and cheap

2k rumored users and a just barely avoided bankruptcy is hardly a rise

It's probably meant to be 'The rise and fall of onlive', i'd guess typo.
