Up until now, if you used the World of Warcraft Remote services on your Android and iOS device, you could use it partially for free. To access all of the features though, you had to subscribe to the service which ran $2.99 per month. It was an optional subscription you could sign-up for if you felt like you would use all of the features the app and service had to offer instead of what came with just using it for free.
Continuing with our adventures with OnLive these days, those of you who were excited at the prospect of having OnLive on your future OUYA boxes will be happy to know that the Android-based gaming console will still come with OnLive when it launches in early 2013.
We have talked about HTML5 in the past a few times and the fact that you can play HTML5 games right on your mobile device without the need for really anything but your browser. Well in a similar fashion to Kongregate, Gamorlive is a portal that has multiplayer HTML5 anyone can play on their Android device.
While the title may seem a bit sarcastic, or humorous depending on your sense of humor, no doubt a lot of people have been following what has been going on with OnLive over the past few days since rumors began that the company would suddenly be closing its door to massive lay-offs and it being bought out. Since late Friday, after all the dust settled, we knew more about the situation and the impending buy-out of the game streaming service.
So as the dust settles through a flurry of rumors and half details earlier this afternoon, it seems as though some sense is now coming out of the whole OnLive fiasco. Rumors from OnLive shutting down today and entire staff lay-offs, Bankruptcy filing and pretty much everything else you can stuff in there have been floating around.
Moments ago a wild rumor spread across the Twitter space about OnLive apparently closing their doors today out of nowhere and that they were laying off their entire staff. The rumor also suggested that a new company would be formed but all OnLive staff would be laid off.
Way back in April of 2011 we talked about GameStop who had been developing their own rumored game streaming service called Spawn, the software of which they purchased from another company called Spawn Labs. Now, after all this time, it looks like the service will finally become a reality next year and will be available for tablets, TVs and PCs.
Something that a lot of people have wanted looks to be finally making its way to the Google Play store. A new update for the Google Play store APK has started rolling out and with this update comes not a whole lot visibly different. Yet when Android Police searched through the APK file, they found something very interesting, the ability to redeem Gift Card codes.
