If PS3 could download there Ps1/Ps2 classics, do you think we will be able to get that one day on PS4? This Streaming Bs isnt gonna work especially with fighters that require exact frame inputs... but then again PSnow would lose revenue. They should know america's internet infrastructure prob isnt ready for that. I dont want PSNow to become another "Onlive"

But not on PS4. Just movies and PS4 games.

 

Because of PS Now, the likelihood of them adding PS1/PS2 classics to the PS4 store are quite slim.

beta users said that PSN classic purchases were transfered to the PSnow library.

PlayStation now would probably be the cloud environment of a ps3... You know, back when they cared about running all of your games.

I don't understand the concept. But my biggest issue is that you don't know what they're going to do, and your whole experience is up for grabs just because you follow their line of consoles. I hope there are buy options on playstation now that enable you to buy and own your cloud, then run them through a server and potentially be able to run all the games you bought digitally... Though that sounds like the biggest money trap ever. As people who played discs get the shaft and everyone else does when facing their digital prices.

It seems like sony purposely dropped their fanservice to zero... You sort of have to toss the ideas of ps3 away when getting ps4 for now.
