The service allows gamers to play PC games via a set-top box on your HDTV or on a PC that does not have powerful specs. The games were streamed via cloud servers and cost a nominal amount per month.
OnLive's new owner Gary Lauder has remained quiet since his acquisition but has finally posted today about the company and its return. The company now has 90 employees, a new office and a new SVP of Engineering.
"The Game Service and the Desktop are two great examples of what can be done with OnLive's core technology, but they are just the beginning," says Lauder. The OnLive Desktop service lets you stream an almost full copy of Windows to devices with other operating systems.
Adds the owner: "So now, the Next Big Thing for the team that built the first cloud gaming service is to build a robust, scalable open platform using our core streaming technology, but with a completely new architecture that will allow ANYONE to leverage our low-latency streaming solution."
