.....why would anyone be excited for streaming support? You'll have to rebuy access to anything you have a physical copy of, and you'll be
100% dependent on Playstation Network if you ever want to play it again. This is just one big f***** up prelude to a digital only console.

I'm so damn glad I have a quality PC and a BC PS3. If they do this where you pay for the games individually, just to stream, screw them.


However, I'll say this. If PS+ included a service that allowed you to stream as many games as you wanted from PS1-3, it'd be a cool feature trumping anything XBL offers.

How about we wait for the official announcement on the 20th before jumping to silly conclusions about how this new thing is gonna work?

The video timelines PlayStation's evolution through the years. Why would they call the console PlayStation Evolution?
#7XplodnPnguins92Posted 2/15/2013 8:05:33 PM

I wasn't drawing conclusions, I was speculating. Hence the use of IF frequently. There's no telling what the business model will be, but
purchasing unlocks of individual games would be robbery if you can't even run it off of a HD. They can't include cell for PS3 BC because
it'd drive the price up insanely high, and they sure as hell can't software emulate it on P4 HW, so I understand why they're doing it. Still...

*hugs 60GB phat*

No that's the service name
Companies want short names
#10regsantotomasPosted 2/15/2013 9:07:09 PM
In order of release

1. Playstation
2. Playstation 2 = PS2
3. PSP
4. Playstation 3 = PS3
5. PSP Go (Go means 5 in Japanese)
6. PSP Vita (Roman numeral VI)
7. Playstation "4" or it could be a play on the number 7.

Only the PSP/PS3 throws a wrench in the naming convention though that could have been an effort in avoiding "4"
