An official statment was made which gave insight into how things will work in the near future as well as what customers can expect. All purchases, achievements, videos and other user content will remain intact and be available to users as it was before. The company plans to continue operating 24/7 like they used to before recent changes. Also users can expect Vizio, CoStar, and Ouya consoles in near future. With Visio CoStar they expect to offer decent competition for Apple TV, while Ouya's goal is to bring Android based games to TV.
OnLive will now concentrate on a major transition due to new owners and afterwards Pearlman will focus on new product releases and promised major announcements; both large and small. Some of them have already mentioned Ouya and Visio CoStar, but OnLive said that more will be coming very soon. Hopefully Steve Pearlman will be able to bring the company back to its feet, or maybe even take it “to a higher level“. OnLive is really a great project and will help those who cannot afford to buy a new PC or console every (few) years.
[Ed – We are certainly interested in seeing where this goes. The fact that all of the employees were laid off and then only 50% were hired back is more than a little suspicious with Perlman maintaining the top spot. We do hope that someone looks into the situation to ensure that the employees of OnLive were not taken advantage of in this transition.]
