OnLive Layoffs Follow-up

Joystiq has a rundown of what went down during a final meeting with the staff of OnLive before they were all fired, clarifying the report that the entire staff was being let go as part of some sort of reorganization. The company has undergone an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors, or ABC (a form of bankruptcy), and will continue under the ownership of a venture capitalist. Word is only "the essential" portion of the company's 150-200 staff will be rehired going forward as the new owner attempts to bring the cloud gaming service into profitability.

Preseason football action tonight, which I'm looking forward to. And I love the hype: All week long the NFL network has been promoting this as "Tim Tebow and the Jets" taking on the Giants. Get your peanuts... the circus is coming to town!
