Square Enix’s Core Online service, which allowed you to stream games online, has shut down due to lack of interest — so much lack of interest, in fact, that it actually shut down at the end of November last year and people are only now noticing.

“Core Online was released as an experiment to see what demand there would be for HD games played via the browser,” writes the support page.

“However, due to limited commercial take-up of this initiative, Core Online closed on Friday 29th November 2013.”

If you’re one of the seven people who paid for a subscription to the service, Square Enix will be issuing refunds as appropriate.

Not really surprised – I doubt most people would have a connection that was fast enough and reliable enough for it – not to mention people like myself really want ‘always connected’ to be optional and a choice – not the be all and end all of gaming.
