    I'm betting BC will be a big part of this whole thing. I'm just wondering how it will all come together. The next E-3 should answer all our questions.

    I'll reiterate what I said earlier in the thread, as it may have got lost in the last couple of pages...

    If I was betting man, I'd put money on a PS4 that's more a cutdown PC box, which would allow easier porting to the PC market as proper installs, and streaming to other tablets.

    The PS4 wouldn't be backwards compatible, and that would be achieved via cloud.

    So my thoughts

    -A PC PS4
    -Games available on both PC and PS4 via PSN (delayed on PC)
    -PS4 games available physically on media.
    -PS3 games available via streaming on all devices.

    Damn, too much to read so I'll just drop my opinion on this

    I firmly believe that Sony will release the next gen console and continue physical media for a few years before moving on to steaming next gen gaming(I can see current and past gen's supported on the first year). That being said Sony needs to make a deal with Google to make this more convenient to household owners.

    See above post

    I didn't mention it, but yeah I can see after a few years, they will be looking at using the PS4 as a streaming gate.
    After all we already KNOW this is what MS has in mind.

    The PC bit? Yeah that's probably a bit of a stretch.

    lol precisely. There's no need for it, especially if you can provide it through cloud.

    Cloud cuts you base down significantly though. That's my only issue with it, you cant reach everyone.
    But do it via PSN like steam, that's what I was thinking.
    But is such stupid idea to have Naughty dog developing a PS4 game they can quickly port to PC say 6 months down the track? I don't know.

    I agree. Doing it via PSN like steam would be smarter. Just look at how successful steam is and alot of people swear by it.

    I highly doubt that Gaikai will feature gen 8 games. It's clear now in the way that Sony is packaging their current catalog into all these crazy bundles that they are positioning their current catalog in a way that is extremely accessible to late adopters and I think it will branch out further when PS4 jumps in. Really though, I wish Sony would pull its finger out and tell us exactly what's going on lol. I don't think it is going to be shooting itself in the foot with this though. It's are doing a lot of $#@! right at the moment.

    Gaikai getting sued:

    http://www.joystiq.com/2012/10/11/ga...-infringement/
    A Delaware company called T5 Labs has filed suit against cloud-gaming service Gaikai for alleged patent infringement, putting the technology that underpins Gaikai's fancy cloud-computing/game-streaming wizardry under the legal microscope.

    Specifically, T5 Labs claims that by "providing a system and methods of sharing a graphics processing unit (GPU) between a plurality of programs," Gaikai is "actively, knowingly and intentionally" using the technology covered by T5's patent for "Sharing a graphical processing unit between a plurality of programs."

    Multiple programs using the same GPU may sound like something that every single computer does on a regular basis, but T5's patent actually covers a specific scenario involving servers, remote terminals and compression algorithms. No specific dollar amount is listed in the complaint, but T5 is seeking damages, attorney's fees and "a judgement permanently enjoining Gaikai from further infringement."

    Gaikai has "no comment at this time" regarding the situation.

    T5 labs tried suing OnLive too but nothing happened...Probably cause it had no money lol. Now they are looking to Sony' conglomerate wallet.

    Wasn't I clear enough? I'll warn anyone who continues to derail the thread.

    Probably a $#@! load of patents involved with all this cloud stuff. I expect more lawsuits to follow this one. It may get ugly.
