OnLive hosts a decent suite of RPGs, so this could be a shock to some RPG fans, but there is a silver lining. News is that, due to new funding, both the OnLive service will keep running for the foreseeable future, so players won't be losing their games, and in addition, many or possibly all of its employees will be re-hired by the new owners. How long this will last, however, remains to be seen, and this incident will certainly damage confidence in the digital games platform.
While OnLive wasn't my personal cup of tea, it's always unfortunate to see news of this nature, especially in the wake of some rough years for the games industry. Hopefully gamers will continue to have affordable cloud-based options for their entertainment needs for some time yet.
