Calm down your tits.

UPDATE: This patent MAY be used to add elements to classic titles. From the description it sounds like PlayStation Remix would effectively swap between emulated and new content. Objectively, PS Remix may act as a sort of “wrapper” that could incorporate new content into emulated games.

Yeah something about this seems strange, adding mini games during the game, and I bet these mini games start with an ad for Coca Cola or KFC.

I would pay probably up to $200 for this concept to be delivered to me by a piece of hardware that used either my existing discs or digital titles (i.e. a PS4 add-on like the 32X).

I'm never going to use the cloud for gaming, I don't have the bandwidth to take advantage of it. I would rather them deliver an option that everyone can use.

because striving for and giving gamers a solution to backwards compatibility for the new system is a bad thing. What would you have them do? spend tons of money on disk-based re-releases? Add the hardware to ps4 systems and significantly increase the price? emulate everything locally even though top of the line PCs can't even do it?

There's already a thread on this somewhere I think.

But that's quite a cool idea, so long as they're not adverts, and they are optional anyway.

I've used Gaikai before they shut the servers down. That, combined with what I saw with the poor quality of streams on services like the live broadcasting on PS4, any my experience using OnLive as well as Gaikai, there is no way Im buying into this Gaikai stuff as practical. Especially with a company like Sony trying to pull this off.

System Wars is worth it just for the delicious damage control.

Funny how the cloud becomes possible as soon as Sony talks about it. The future will be cloud and Microsoft has the advantage in this area.

What damage am I controlling exactly?

These emulation features are never fully realised by anyone. I have learned its easier simply to keep the things I love these days.

Dont trade in, dont sell. Just buy things you want and keep them. Easy.

Apperently, your viewpoint is lem irrational damage control, and not a perfectly valid observation, based on the quality of every cloud gaming service, EVER (including the one this service is based off of).

Apparently, when I remind people of the quality of Onlive and (old) Gaikai, which had high latency and were very laggy/poor in quality, and then factor in that this PS4 service will be used by 1000 fold the userbase of the former, its like you're saying the sky is green.

So when I posted Sony's patent on DRM cows dismissed it as "It is a patent, lots of patents are filed and never come to be."

So now all of a sudden this patent has cows dancing in the streets like it will hit next week.

Typical.

Woops/ sarcasm comprehension fail.

There is no "lem" damage control. Im speaking from experience.....that is all. No need to get your knickers in a twist. This cloud service COULD set the standard, it COULD be the most magnificent example of seamless backwards compatibility known to man....but as I said thus far... "These emulation features are never fully realised by anyone". Im going to reserve my excitement for the execution rather than they hype, which has existed numerous times before now...

Il think you will find my decision to wait and see is actually the opposite of irrational, you will also note MS was not mentioned at any stage during my post, meaning no "lem" and no "damage control" present.

So not only did you insult my rationale and criticise my argument you also managed to agree with me at the same time whilst failing to make a single original comprehensive point yourself. Nice one.

My post was sarcasm bro. I was mimicking cows.

I do not understand why Gaikai is held in such high regard at such an early juncture despite providing nothing tangible.

I dont think they would have spent 400 million on it (plus additional work they are doing to it) unless they were sure it would work.

Microsoft will do it too.

Why don't they just release the damn games on the PS store instead of limiting it only those with high end internet connections? And we all know the PS4 needs as many games as it can get.

Next-gen console clowns getting excited over P2P BC. And it's going to be latent as fuck and unusable for most. Top lel.

And support for legacy games comes free with mods these days. Get with the program =)
