ONLIVE - OnLive is a company offering a cloud gaming platform and a cloud desktop system. Both offerings are synchronized, rendered, and stored on remote servers and delivered via the Internet.
The gaming platform is available using the OnLive Game System, PCs running Microsoft Windows (XP, Vista, 7), Intel-based Macs with Mac OS X 10.5.8 or later, Android devices and iOS devices.Since the games are rendered on OnLive's servers, a low-end computer may be used to play any kind of game as long as it is able to play video. For that reason, the service is being seen as a competitor for the console market. All games on the service are available in 720p format. OnLive recommends an Internet connection of 5 Mbit/s or faster, and a 2 Mbit/s connection meets the minimum system requirements.
Over 50 publishers, such as Take-Two Interactive, Sega, Ubisoft, Epic Games, Atari, Codemasters, THQ, Warner Bros., Kalypso Media, 2D Boy, Eidos Interactive, Disney Interactive Studios, and others have partnered with OnLive.
After five years of uninterrupted service, the OnLive Game Service comes to an end.
Sony has acquired important parts of OnLive. Due to the sale, all OnLive services were discontinued as of April 30, 2015.
As the first-ever game streaming service of its kind, everyone who has ever played a game using OnLive has contributed to the technology and its evolution in some way. We’re immensely proud of what’s been achieved and extend our heartfelt gratitude to you for being a part of the OnLive Game Service.
