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.

That's purchasing games, like Steam.

Edit. I have no idea why url codes never work on blues for me.

That's games as a service, not renting. You're buying access to crappy old games, like CSI.

Here's a direct question about renting games:

"You can't rent PC games. Most PC games are for purchase only. There are quite a few PC games you can download and play for free in the Unlimited PC Play section."

Also asked here
"Gamefly doesn't rent PC games, so if you only have a PC, you probably wouldn't benefit from the service."

Really, a whole string of people asking and being told "Gamefly doesn't do this.

Old pc games or not, it's still essentially renting them. Just out of curiosity do you work for EA or Activision? It always amazes me how much you tend to go out of your way to defend publishers.
