what about latency? i hope sony will explain how they want to deal with that first

certainly hope so. I hope this also pushes MS hand to provide a similar feature. MS already demoed halo 4 running on a win phone, with 40ms latency.
But honestly, usually i dont go back to play old games when a new system comes out, its rare and when i do its usually a rpg type like fallout etc.

That won't be a problem with you have a good connection. I don't know if you ever played but Gaikai or Onlive but they're stable to stream games but I wouldn't recommend them. They're quality is not the best but they never really improved it's quality, although Onlive said they could do 1080p@60fps but most people wouldn't be able to run it. I ran Onlive without problems 3 years ago, and my connection was nothing special at the time and didn't experience much lag like may others do. Gaikai either way is better and I'm sure Sony is improving it. AS I said, if you have a good connection, it's not a problem.

Yea I use Onlive....or should say used because I barely use it....do have 1 game that was free on there....
It wasnt that bad. For in the streets....of course the connection will play a big role. In the home...many ppl should have a fast enough connection. I know for the Vita and Remote Play you have 2 connection options: Internet and Local. Local was advised to use in the home. Makes sense....so hopefully that will remain an option for this too.

hope we get PS1 games too but this is awesome news indeed!

if it's PS1 or PSP games i'd rather run it using emu instead of using streaming service.

Imagine being able to play PS3 and PS2 games right there on your PS4. Sounds even better, doesn't it? Backwards compatibility would've been nice.

Nice but not technologically feasible. That's the point of this Gaikai streaming service (now called PlayStation Now.)

If that is so, PlayStation exclusives are not so PlayStation exclusives at all.

TV's might not matter but I cant see them having this available for WP devices. Surface.
PC's is gonna be interesting. Having this for Windows is gonna be like a middle finger to MS.

This is stupid, at least for phones and tablets. Touch controls would ruin the experience. I'll gladly use this on my Vita but its a waste it time for phones/tablets.

That's why. Sony has offer native PS3 dual support on most of their xperia range and tablet.
