I expect them to end up running Home on Gaikai. Could help improve the service ,wouldn't need to download updates to every area.Should make moving between areas quicker also.An Home is getting quite large eating up a good bit of HDD space,streaming it would certainly reduce that.

I've never used Home, nor am I in the least bit worried it won't make it to next gen.

it would be a great centerpiece for ps4 if done right. Set up an open world environment where you can discover games.
