TBH MS should really be thinking about something like that as a way of getting some semblance of backwards compatibility. It's one of the points where I feel both next gen consoles fall down (Xbox more so). Though I'd imagine with the PS4 streaming thing, it's not like you'll be able to play your old PS3 games, but rather you'll be able to buy them again through the streaming system which kinda defeats the purpose for me.
    thats the game streaming offering, i tested ONlive before it went bust.

    the lag was a killer in a single player game, you really need a sub 20 ping for it work. great idea but only available to a select few with cracking internet connections.

    ideally for it to work ISPs need to host a server on their internal network which would make consoles pretty much obsolete. Sony needs ISPS if they are going to offer streaming games.

    Yeah but that's pretty much the same thing that happened when movies moved from vhs to dvd, you had to buy them again. The playstation model, from what I've been lead to believe, will be much cheaper than that though. However I'm not using that as any excuse. I actually agree with you. I think if you own the original disc you should be able to stream from gaikai for free.

    There's a rumour the One is going to come bundled with FIFA 14 for free in Europe, would be welcome news if true

    Update: FIFA 14 is coming bundled with every pre-ordered Xbox One in Europe

    Other PlayStation 4 tidbits revealed during Sony's Gamescom 2013 press conference include the fact you will finally be able to listen to your own music while playing games.
    Wow..............

    Yep. Another good one was they're including a game called Play Room on every PS4, it's an augmented reality game, ya know you see yourself but with virtual characters in the room etc. So that comes with every console... The camera you need to use it, does not.

    The Playstation press conference was less than impressive.

    This happened during the EA conference though https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhIpuEtnZdA It's so insane, can't wait for that game

    I've been reading a few things about this and they're saying "while stocks last". Isn't it a download version you get? How do you run out of stock?

    Yeah it's a digital download. I think it's only going to come with the Day One edition of the console so I guess once they run out (they haven't so far in most of Europe but have in the US at most retailers) but all pre-orders in Europe so far should be the Day One edition

    Ah, so it's console stock rather than stock of the game?

    It's only in Europe, no word on what will be free for the US, probably be Madden or NBA and it comes with all pre orders not just day one consoles

    See all the games are priced at €60 to €65 in GameStop! Hope hmv are back selling games to give them some competition cause that's a joke!

    Nope load of crap things that noone really wants.

    Streaming to twitch, watching tv at the same time...yay.... biggest problem is the lack of new games to show off the machines.

    Battlefield 4 should do it but tis fucked at the moment. and games are 75 quid.

    I have the Xbox One. Not really much of a step up from the 360 atm. No voice commands in Ireland yet and TV through the HDMI passthrough is bolloxed at the moment (Someone at MS didn't realise we broadcast at 50hz rather than 60hz). Also as kdjac said unfortunately BF4 which should be a good game to show the system off is a wreck at the moment. Can totally see the potential in the system, but right now it's not really worth getting
