Very little info on the streaming so far. It may be like that where you have to repurchase, they may let you register old ps3 games to allow access through stream(I pray to god hope).
As of now several PS1 PS2 classics you have to repurchase on PS Store, and same with PSP games on Vita. For time being people are probably best off keeping their PS3 if they want to play old games, until we get more details. Even though they probably will get sales and good numbers at launch this time around, it would probably be in Sony's best interest to allow people to register there games to PSN in a way similar to steam, and they be able to access it wherever. It would keep PS3 selling for people that want a cheaper console until PS4 drops price, and let them keep any games for future consoles.
I didn't hear any info on X1 doing it yet, but we should assume that they will eventually. PS4 won't have access to it till next year(early).
