Its been a somewhat busy week for Sony, with the huge software update to the PS4 and the decommissioning of Playstation Home for the PS3. Presently, Sony can include the obtaining of the game streaming service OnLive to its list of things accomplished for the current week. Confirmed through both Sony and OnLive, an arrangement was struck for OnLive’s services and intellectual property to be taken over completely by Sony. Sony hasn’t yet reported what particularly the organization was interested in when making the decision to take over OnLive, however since Sony brought the game streaming service, PlayStation Now to its platform, the move certainly makes sense.

For the individuals who use the OnLive service, the organization states through its official forums that all of the OnLive games, saves, achievements and more will be taken offline and erased, as well as client information after April 30, 2015. OnLive does express that “on the off chance that you bought a Steam game from OnLive, that game will still be available on Steam”, so at least select buys will stay with OnLive clients past April 30.
