That's not backwards compatibility, that's called "Having a work-around."

10 bucks says you'll still have to PAY to play your "Backwards compatible" games.

It'll probably require a PSN+ subscription. Already have this, so it's a moot point, but still...

Sounds interesting. I worry a little about latency issues, but I guess we'll see.

Every game I would want to play on the PS2 or PS1, mostly RPGs, I don't think would be that bad with latency.

Streaming old games from the cloud won't solve compatibility problems unless these old games have been redone to run on x86 cpus. They will probably include the old cpu in ps4 for a while just like they did with the ps3.

...what? In this scenario, the game is actually running on some virtualized PS/PS2/whatever in a datacenter, and you are being streamed the video.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
