Possible uses.

PS4 games/demos
PS3, PSN, PS2, PS1, PSP, backwards compatibility
PS Mobile compatibility
Video store streaming service (Their own Netflix)
Music streaming service integrated

All as long as you keep up your PS+ Subscription.

That's what I think we can expect from this service.

I am hoping for the ability to stream game demo's. I would buy all my games in physical form and choose to stream a demo rather than download it. It would just suit me. Not like it matters because I am able to download demos REALLY fast, but streaming would be even more ideal for me.

We don't know how they will use it but I wouldn't hold my breathe they are a hardware company. But we will all have t wait and see I suppose. Should be interesting.
