Basically my opponents in Home were playing a master level computer.

It's a bad message to send to companies that we're willing to pay to play games we don't actually own.
I don't want PSNow. I want true backwards compatibility. I can get MGS4 for cheap.
Why would I pay to play it for a far smaller window of time than if I actually owned the game?
You ain't got to be an accountant to figure that one out. Next thing you know we'll be paying for demos
Backwards compatibility was never going to happen due to the architecture change. Sony did the right thing looking ahead instead of tying themselves down with backwards compatibility. OG PS3 had BC and hardly that much people cared once it was removed.
If PSNow is done right, it has the potential to be better than normal BC. Obviously not in terms of performance but the fact that you'll have so many devices that will be able to stream these games. We've seen Bravia TV's, PSvita and the PS3 with support for smartphones and tablets coming down the line.
I'm not a fan of the rental service since Publishers set the price which is why they are all over the place. A subscription model will be much better seeing how successful PS+ is.
