OnLive: 'Tis But a Scratch!

OnLive chairman Garry Lauder invokes Mark Twain in saying reports of the death of the OnLive streaming game service "are greatly exaggerated," taking some responsibility for that: "When the restructuring of OnLive happened in August, many misunderstood it to mean that the service and company were shutting down," explains Lauder in the OnLive Blog. "Neither occurred, nor did we go bankrupt. We should have communicated better" (thanks Polygon). What was communicated at the time was that a majority of the company's staff was being laid off, and that the company was being sold in a form of bankruptcy known as an "Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors." He talks of how their technology can be useful for enterprise applications, but also indicates they still have gaming ambitions:

We have already delivered some significant milestones for the OnLive Game Service, in particular, being incorporated into our first third party device, the VIZIO Co-Star, and into Google TVs, starting with the impressive LG G3 Series—with more to come. We continue to bring new game publishers and games into the mix, and released Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced release from CD Projekt on Thursday, February 28 with a special promotion, which includes a free digital download copy of the game for PCs with purchase of a Full PlayPass. This is an important paradigm shift towards enabling our users to get their games in as many formats as they’d like, even if they are not delivered by our platform. We are busy exploring other new ways to serve our users’ and publishers’ interests capitalizing on our unique abilities.
