OnLive UK launch “beyond what we ever imagined”

The UK launch of OnLive this September was an unimaginable success for the company, CEO Steve Pearlman has said.

“The growth in the UK has been faster than when we launched in the US,” he’s told MCV.

“It went beyond what we ever imagined. Overwhelmed is not even the word. The numbers in the UK are ten times what we projected.”

While not giving exact figures, Pearlman says the UK launch of the streaming games service reached millions of users, with the global attach rate in the tens of millions.

The system is available now via its website, with retailers, staring with Game, getting it starting later this year.
