this is the first time tho, that we'll probably have NO backwards comparability to the last gen.

hrmmm... well, sony bought Gaikai. with that, it's presumed that the ps4 will offer a service to pay and play games over an internet stream, similar to onlive.

while that makes sense, I don't think it'll be successful much. the internet architecture and concept are simply not ripe yet. not everyone has internet, let alone a fast, huge broadband connection. you need a widespread server-network as well (which I doubt gaikai or onlive or whatever has yet) since you'll have other wise a good deal of delay. and the services would need a fail-safe system. save data is a problem too I'd say.
