Well here's the thing... PS Now isn't going to be the only horse in this race. An inevitable service by Google and Apple will be more popular and will reach more people.

You can also bet your life savings that Microsoft and Nintendo have a similar program in the works.

Nintendo is many years in the past online gaming wise, wii u only really adopted a proper network a couple of years ago, this is/will be cutting edge nintendo never do cutting edge,Microsoft most certainly will and as the only company with significant exclusives they are the main competition oh and maybe steam... However-this wont kill consoles anytime soon, nor likely next generation.

PS Now will never end consoles. It will complement them, and even if other companies start doing it like Nintendo, Apple or Google, they will not release new games for the service. Those will be reserved for consoles and PC, because that's a profitable business, and they will not kill it.

You don't see movies going straight to Netflix and be exclusive to it. There will be games exclusive to PS Now, but the smaller kind, never a AAA game.

PlayStation Now's ability to stream will be dependent on your internet. You better be ready to pay Time Warner, Comcast, etc. The ISP will keep the console alive by denying good access to services.

I think PlayStation Now is mandatory for PS4. You need to connect your console of choice to either PS4 or PS3 to be able to stream it on either tablet,Vita or even PC of your choice.
