Sony Computer Entertainment is buying the remaining patents and assets belonging to OnLive, the cloud-computing service that some might say was ahead of its time. OnLive as a service will shut down on April 30th and the company won't collect any more subscription fees. On April 30th, all OnLive player data will be deleted, though any Steam games purchased through the service will continue to reside on Steam.
"It is with great sadness that we must bring the OnLive Game Service to a close," OnLive writes. "Sony is acquiring important parts of OnLive, and their plans don't include a continuation of the game service in its current form."
