so PSN PS3 games basically, we pay/rent to stream them while we play? (instead of buying and downloading/installing)?

uhh and i dont think Sony will let us somehow stream the PS3 games we already have so....

we have to rebuy the streamed version of PS3 games we already own?...

... Do you know what streaming is? Basically, the thing you're using is running off the companies servers. For instance, when you watch youtube, you aren't watching it off your computer (you didn't download it). It's the same thing with the games. Streaming has nothing to do with videos, it's just usually used for that because streaming games takes a lot of bandwidth.

... Not sure how I feel about this tidbit, especially without a pricing plan.
