OnLive, the pioneers of cloud gaming, are in dire straits and are preparing to file for a form of bankruptcy, a source inside the company told Kotaku today. An OnLive spokesperson maintains that the OnLive service, which enables people to stream games to their computers and tablets without the need for dedicated hardware, will continue. But it seems as if the company itself is hitting some very hard times.


The OnLive service renders console and PC games in the cloud, then streams them to your computer or mobile device. Some believe it’s the future of gaming. But though OnLive hit the Android Marketplace in December (and Xperia PLAY support arrived last week), the service has yet to launch in Australia. Officially that is. This Android Package (APK) may well let you unofficially access the service from our shores.

Cloud-based gaming service OnLine has been developing briskly over the last half year. Their first move onto the iPad, the free OnLive Viewer app, doesn't let you play games but rather lets you watch them as they're being played. Huh!
