Whether it was because of that or because Square Enix didn’t have enough of a game catalog to offer, Dive In didn’t actually catch on. Barely a year later, Square Enix is pulling the plug on the service, hinting at its unprofitable nature. […] Square Enix isn’t completely knocking off the game streaming idea, at least not directly. […] Shinra Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary that is now headed by former Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada. Unlike a platform like PlayStation Now, Shinra’s goal is to have game developers actually build their virtual worlds on their cloud platform. It is an interesting proposition but one that has yet to bear fruit. – JC Torres, SlashGear
