OnLive is doing well in the UK – very well – if CEO Steve Perlman is to be believed.
The cloud gaming service’s head honcho told MCV that OnLive has reached ‘millions’ of users in Britain since its launch on 22nd September:
“The growth in the UK has been faster than when we launched in the US. It went beyond what we ever imagined.
“Overwhelmed is not even the word. The numbers in the UK are ten times what we projected.”
It’s surprising how fast OnLive has taken off in the UK due to how inflexible a lot of ISPs are when it comes to the amounts of data you can download.
Membership has likely been boosted by free OnLive console giveaway promotions like the one at Eurogamer Expo, but it’s still a very enviable audience to have reached in such a short period of time for such a new platform.
