Re: Sounds like they are done
said by nonymous:you cant offshore employees when the servers have to be a certian distance from you, which means they have to be close. I suspect its either false, or they were bought out and shut down due to pressure from the **AA's. if its the least bit disruptive to any market, the **AA's have something to say.
Even if employees are let go does it really mean anything. In today's world there is no need for employees or very few. That is the way Wall Street thinks and investment groups.
Just increasing profits for the investors and better customer service if they are letting employees go.
Or just offshore all the employees.

Umm...the MPAA/RIAA don't have anything to do with video games, except maybe the music in them (but that's a very minor thing).
My guess is that any hot water OnLive got into was due to licensing issues with Microsoft, not any of their other publishers.
As for servers being a certain distance from you, OnLive employees don't necessarily have to have access to the consumer side of the service. Sure, there need to be testers, but thats a subset of the functionality of the employee group, and you can have a test server on-site (offshore) anyway.
