Nice, assuming the guy isn't part of some dev team, Sony could be fairly close to rolling this out to their user base! Quite exicited (despite the fact I don't own a PS4) what Sony do with this, could be very good for gaming if it works well enough.

 It's coming to PS3 as well.

Don't know how anyone does this, my PS3 backlog is crazy and there's more to add to it next year! I'm playing my PS3 more than my PS4 right now lol.

Will be awesome to have cloud gaming.  The upcoming PS4 games are plentiful, but will be nice to rock the PS3 games again.  My PS3 was stolen a few years ago :(

I'm a blind fool who wanted an Xbox One too much, this was the only way I could convince myself (and the misses) that I could affiord to do so. In reality I didn't have a backlog of games and I preferred gaming on my 360 (which was also sacrificed) so it wasn't a massive loss but if money wasn't a problem and I wasn't a fool for being attracted to the shiny I wouldnt have gotten rid of it.

Isn't it a given, that streaming cannot possibly be as good as the real thing, due to lag and image quality?

 

Therefore, why would you want it? (on any console)

Actually to be fair for most people (read: not professional hardcore gamers) it's actually not a big issue any more. The only time it's going to be a massive issue is in games where sub-second input reaction time is critical, but this is mostly for fighters and the occasional FPS anyway - for games like Uncharted, or Last of Us, and especially games like LA Noir or Heavy Rain, the 1-second-lag (if that) isn't a massive issue. I mean, I can't say this is true for the Gaikai service, but I believe the general rule of thumb is that if you can put up with the wireless controllers of the GCN/PS2 days, you shouldn't really care too much about lag in cloud gaming.

I am really interested in seeing how the final product works and how they might charge for this.

Hoping: Service = Free to PSN Members [no time limits, access to free ps3 games,etc], register PS3 games by putting them in the PS4.. or buying digital licenses.  Any supported registered game could then be played.

That would be amazing. I'm all for that.

That's also probably why it won't be that :laugh:

The free service that firey mentioned would be great but I think most likely you will need to be a PS Plus subscriber to use the PS cloud service.

If this works well I hope Microsoft will eventually integrate this into the Xbox One. It would be a good fit because of how much they have been pushing cloud computing as of late. I can't wait to see how well this works.

When I said PSN Members I meant PSN Plus.  I guess I look at memberships as a paid for thing.  So that's basically in line what I was thinking.  I assume will also have cloud saves akin to what we have now.
