After all the rumours about OnLive financial problems and relative acquisition by Lauder Partners Affiliate, we received the press release last friday, November 16 about the integration of OnLive Game Service into LG Smart TV with Google TV (G2 Series).
This will be the first commercial development of cloud gaming in a TV without the need of a gaming console, OnLive is offering its users the possibility to play and save games on the go, using mostly of the PC and Mac or Android tablets. OnLive enables cross-platforms, users will be able to start playing with a platform, saving and continuing with a different one as all the data will be saved in the cloud.
