Games Interesting. The Verge summarises the loads of news and rumours coming out of OnLive today - much of the staff seems to have been laid off, and an acquisition could be imminent. Who will it be? Apple? Google? Microsoft? EA? Valve? CommodoreUSA?

The CEO is a bit of a shit.

Back on topic, lets answer some guesses

Apple
Doesn’t need streaming/rental games, they are more than happy to get 30% from selling to you. And it defeats their attempt to have Apple attached to your life (TV, tablet, laptop, etc)

Google
Can’t see them needing it, but maybe.

Microsoft
For patent trolling Sony? Maybe.
To get a feature for XboxNext? Maybe.

EA
Likely, Origin seems to be expanding atm and this dick move seems to be something in their area of expertise.

Valve
Nope. Doesn’t have the capital or the want for it.

Thoughts?
