Playstation Now! Sony's New Video Game Streaming Service

Sony announces its new video game streaming service coming out for PS4 this summer. 

According to the US Playstation Blog, the new Gakai advanced cloud-based technology will allow Playstation Now subscribers to stream games to their PS4s and PS3s this summer, and soon on their Vitas!

The site says, "Popular Hits" and "Classic Games." Which games will be determined to be on that list? I hope to see a powerful line up of games to market out the plan which allows users to rent particular titles as well as pay a (as of yet unknown) subscription fee. 

Will PS+ get a discount? Will PS+ members be a part of the US Beta to be announced later this month? We'll keep you updated about this service as news comes in. 

The Blog also states that 
"2014 US models of Sony’s BRAVIA TV lineup will support PS Now. Eventually the service will expand beyond PlayStation platforms and Sony devices, allowing you to stream PlayStation games across a broad range of Internet-connected devices."

What do you think of this news? What "classic games" or "popular titles" do you hope to play on your PS4, PS3, or Vita?
