With OnLive pulling out of E3 2009 due to the fact that "E3 is a retail-oriented conference, both for retail platforms and retail publishers, and OnLive is neither," we now have its supposed rival game streaming service, GaiKai, also backing out from the said event.
In an email sent out to media outfits who were expecting a demo of the said service at the E3 (ie. Big Download), "Unfortunately David is going to have to postpone all E3 interviews relating to Gaikai - until various patent filings are complete. He had hoped that they would be finalised prior to E3 however, it's now apparent this is not going to be possible."
Guess we'll just have to wait for some other opportunity for either one of them to showcase their products, then.
