[Update] OnLive is for babies, so says fan page

Posted on October 3, 2011 - 9:40am by Sean Hinz

[Update] - Activision responded to our request for comment and we discovered this is in fact a fan page. Despite stating they were the "official" Facebook page of Activision's Spider-Man: Edge of Time, they are not. Here is the official page and Activision had nothing to do with sparking this outrage. 

Fans are outraged by some comments from an fan page representative on Facebook. After a wall post stating "One more day..........not long now folks!" in regards to the release date of Spider-Man: Edge of Time, it quickly devolved into a debate about the legitimacy of gamers who use the OnLive service.  Someone must have asked why this game wasn't going to make to the platform and the fan page response went a little something like this: 

"We do not consider OnLive a platform for our game to appear on. We would rather focus on the mainstream consoles and legitimate gamers. Thank You"

The original posts have now been deleted. While this was articulated rather nicely, the implication that anyone using a cloud-based gaming service is not legit seems rather crass. While I admit that the techonology itself is still in it's infancy, there are implications that it may have legs or even become a standard in the future.

I think the biggest mistake was responding to a troll who commented "OnLive dominating. Lmao. Best joke so far" with, "We were rather tickled ourselves." Nice job there Facebook guy, I am sure that isn't pissing off a sub-section of your Internet fan base. 

We have reached out to Activision for comment.
