Is streaming games important to you?

#1robirminghamPosted 2/19/2013 4:00:48 PM
What are your thoughts on the PS4 possibly streaming PS3 games?

I think I'll be more focused on PS4 games anyway, but I suppose it'd be a cool feature. I did download a bunch of PS1 classics on my PS3 this time around, though.

I DLed a few PS1 and PS2 titles but by and large my time is spent playing new games. I'd appreciate the feature, but I don't think I'd consider it "important" to me.

I love what the PS3 offered.......despite if I had a'd be a majority of PSOne and PS2 titles >.<, only issue is memory,.
Own a Vita, your a troll, own a 3ds, your a fanboy, own an IOS device, you have no opinion...tis the curse on these boards.

It doesn't really matter to me, I will be using my PS3 to play PS3 games. Now if I can stream PS3 games to my Vita then I will be happy and probably use that feature once in a while. I tried Onlive for a few days and it was decent enough, I heard that Gaikai was even smoother than Onlive so it should be a great option for people in NA. It also depends on how much of the PS3 library they will allow you to stream and how the whole process will work, if I put my PS3 disc that I own into PS4 will I get to stream it for free? Too many questions, hopefully some will be answered tomorrow!

How does it work? Can I stream my games I already own or what? If it can stream my games from ps3 I can sell my ps3 to work towards ps4.

Hopefully that question is answered tomorrow!

That's what I would like to see, though. I've gotten quite a few games from the PSN, so those better transfer!

Seeing as how the majority of my PS3 collection are physical, I honestly don't care. Though it's obvious with consoles I should now be going digital, even though it's more expensive. So I probably won't.

I'd rather not.

Relying on stable internet to play games isn't fair to the entire consumer base, as a lot of Playstation 3 owners aren't capable of playing online (this is an assumption, but because I haven't posted numbers/stats it is also true).
Why? Because **** you is why.

It would just be a bonus for me, I'm getting a PS4 for PS4 games.
