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?

Really an aquisition.

If it was an aquisition I wish it was Valve, but I doubt they would lay off everyone like that.

I hope it is _not_ Sony, Microsoft, EA or Apple.

If it was Google....meh.

But I don't know if it is an aquisition if everyone has been laid off. Possibly bankruptcy?

Sony has Gaikai, why would they buy another?

What would Valve do with it? they are already making money hand over fist and if the rumors are true old Gabe is gonna come out with a Steambox thus won't need this. EA recently put themselves up for sale, so no dice there, Apple? i can't see them seeing any value in this except for any possible patents, same with MSFT. And Google? Unless they roll out enough fiber I just don't see it working.

No most likely its a VC vulture that has come in to scoop up any patents and trolololo all over the place. makes sense and if anybody was buying it for the actual company they wouldn't be canning everyone without even doing interviews to see who to keep. Nope it smells like some VC patent troll to me.
