It was a nice dream, but the technology for cloud based gaming just isn't ready, specifically the infrastructure to deliver reliable, high speed internet to everyone.

It was a nice dream, but the technology for cloud based gaming just isn't ready, specifically the infrastructure to deliver reliable, high speed internet to everyone.
It's a nice reality actually, the technology in some areas and other regions of the world is ready but the Telco's often like to consume large amounts of federal funding for expansion and claim they did the best they could. I was able to use OnLive during ComicCon 2012 this year on my phone to play games while waiting in line

The problem that was outlined to Onlive 2 years ago was they owned too many servers across every possible area where their competitor Gaikai used a tiny fraction of that number to operate their network.

Either way the technology was fine but the industry itself questioned how much money Onlive was pumping into their server network years ago. Low Latency is fine but they shouldn't have attempted to essentially put a local server in every single county across the US.

Folks are also saying now that OUYA support will continue, namely because of this line from their statement:

... as well as support all of OnLive's apps and devices, as well as game, productivity and enterprise partnerships.
