none of the people on that show did not touch on the Patent Sony owns! maybe because they may not know it exist's, but here ya go

http://appft.uspto.gov/neta...

so not just Trophy, but also new content can be added like levels or other challenges that a gamer could aquire on playing an older game.example:

play an old level of FF7: a certain way gain a trophy

"[0006] Finding new ways to play preexisting video games can increase the longevity of older games. Instead of replaying the same level or completing the same missions repeatedly, gamers often desire new challenges when replaying legacy games. In response to this need, game designers have begun to produce mini-games. Within a mini-game, the gamer can be instructed to complete new objectives or challenge their friends for high scores in a format that was not originally designed into the legacy game. Further, since the mini-game is derived from a legacy game, the gamer already knows the characters and basic components of the game, and is therefore more likely to play the mini-game. "

so

combined with profit shareing with the studio or publisher = net profit on older games for both Sony and the 3rd party publisher combined with the added bonus to promote that 3rd party publisher's next game = brand new content for the consumer to Aquire on a much older game = service payout to sony + publisher = win everyone is happy!

I have little interest in Playstation Now ... Would prefer a new SKU PS4 with PS3 backward compatibility.

Thats fine. Playstation Now is a service that once its released you may become interested in. Thats the beauty of it.

Doubt it ... I can barely play a FPS or fighting game online without lag ... imagining that lag added to my single player games and lower resolution and quality ... no thanks.

There was already a dip in quality in a CONTROLLED setting at the demonstration Sony held. Imagine the quality when it is in a non controlled setting.
