    Video game Netflix? Hot damn, Sony, you're making my day and breaking my bank account.

    As long as it can avoid being a sputtering failure like OnLive, of course...

    Too bad it won't allow you to stream PS4 games. We'd never need a new console anymore.

    Wait, where is the source in the first post? Just two pictures don't qualify for news.

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    We'd never have true game ownership or hacking anymore. No thanks.

    I picked up a Vita at the right Freaking time, Holy shit.
    Streaming PS2 and PS3 games to my Vita?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! AMAZING.
    The release for US is this summer?

    My area is getting fibre optics in March, so i'm down for this.

    This is particulary interesting for people with gbit connections, most people won't be able to use this properly it seems.
    Fuck, Sony should have released PS ONE, a console that reads PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 games.

    You don't need Gbit connection, video stream is compressed. What you do need is a stable Internet with low ping time.

    And a device that plays all PS games, think you are willing to pay $1,000+ per unit? Cause you have to cram nearly every single components from all console into one unit. Either that or so so emulation.

    How do you know? Already tried PS Now out? What do you have to say to people claiming on the internet that bandwidth controls the image quality and latency controls input lags?

    btw, I find this is more newsworthy:

    Onlive, PC streaming service (same as PS Now in a way, games are streamed rather run on your computer) can run comfortably on 6 mega-bit per seconds.

    Bandwidth requirement is about the same as 1080p netflix.

    I'm kinda torn on this, while it is an amazing piece of tech and probably going to be a great service I do wonder how it will preform in the wild, still come summer time lets see

    So i have to rebuy all my PS1,PS2,PS3 games? nah it's alright i thought this was gonna somehow find a way to authenticate discs and allow a stream. This is basically completely useless because you have to repurchase everything again common trend among gaming nowadays but i refuse to do it. Ill enjoy my PS1 PS2 PS3 games on the systems they were meant to be played on.
