Sony picks over the corpse.
Any idea on how much Sony paid?
Nup, nor what they actually received.
I wonder how much the directors managed to squeeze out in salaries etc, despite making a failed company with unpaid debts.....
Thank goodness. OnLive was sucking money and resources out of the gaming sector it had no right too. It was way over priced for what it was, budget access gaming at above premium pricing. Oh and lets not mention a large portion of the internet couldn't handle it properly. It did live way longer than I thought though.
Surely the OnDrive hardware will still work, never looked at one, what are the specs of them? Could they be used as torrent box or small linux box?
That's addressed in the article and the linked FAQ: the only thing the hardware can do is connect to OnLive. Unless and until someone breaks the protection and writes a custom firmware - which is unlikely to ever happen, given the low specification of the hardware and small number of units in the wild - they'll become doorstops at the end of the month.
and a company called Leap Computing fills its void with true cloud based gaming...
