Sony Should Buy OnLive

IndustryGamers: I'm specifically making this argument for Sony, though some people might read this and ask “Well, why not Microsoft or Nintendo?” It's true that I think OnLive could potentially benefit any of the “Big Three.” Nintendo might be a bit more hesitant about everything OnLive has to offer; after all, Iwata-san has been very insistent that Nintendo software will not appear on non-Nintendo hardware, and that would preclude laptops, HDTVs, Blu-ray players, tablets and other devices OnLive can potentially run on. Microsoft does have an investment in numerous platforms (PCs, smartphones and home consoles) but Sony offers many more hardware devices than Microsoft and then there's the big one: PS Vita.

I don't think Sony would want to spend that kind of money. MS on the other hand has the cash, but I think you're right - both MS and Sony will probably go after cloud gaming with their own tech.

yeah, sony isn't a big player in PC anyways, which is where the initial revenue from this will come form. They will create their own service.

THis could solve piracy and used sales in one go, so i'm sure they are working on it in some form
