I think Gaikai should be like netflix where we pay monthly fees to play previous gen games on the PS4.
Anyone else have ideas or agreed with my idea?
Good idea, OP, and it's not far-fetched, either.
I remember Yoshida Shuhei said that ideally, he wants PS+ to grant access to a library of hundreds of games. I believe Gaikai will be the start of this.
Personally I hate the idea of another monthly fee. Gaikai should just give me the ability to purchase games individualy from the old system libraries and stream them to my PS4. Transfer all my games from my PSN account over for free (or a small fee ($2 per game if they have to charge anything)) and then leave it at that.
Monthly fees are brutal when you have already paid for PS+ and this is supposed to be a service that makes backward compatibility accesible to PS4 users. Adding the fee would defeat the purpose of the concept.
i think they should just merge it with psn re name it Psn / Gaikai.. or just merge them in a way. I dont think a monthly fee is needed to many fee's is not good, it cost money to manage fees. I dont think its counter productive to charge for trial game and psn+ already has trails on the service for free an the devs are giving demos's/trails for free.. I dont think the gamer should be paying for a demo or a limited game trail..
There would no need to even sub to giakai. psn + is doing it better and doing it free and lower cost with more saving to the consumer.
Put everything in one thing is the better, stronger, effective for console. I dont think there should be any fees. Unless you want to buy the game or move them around. I think you should have to rebuy the games, like for example a ps3 to ps4 then you pay a fee.. Same as they doing with certian games as of late/
i think 5-15$ is fair in that aspect. I think sony spent enough money attaining gaikia , its time to make money with what they bought., selling games and etc. I dont think a fee should be there for consoles, they should use what they have, psn+ is good for the consumer and making gmoney and saving for everyone . They dont need to create new fees.
As for the pc side. this would give sony a leg to get (Soe) in the ball game a little more with gaikai in a steam like pricing way.. They want to sell hardware on console and software , then keep those fees on the pc side but at lower price and same exact policy way of before. Make the console gaikai the psn+ way, keep the pc way the same just lower price. No one can complain about saving. If the ps3 gamer want to bring pc game to ps3 or ps4 make a a fee+ price of the game, if it set in a steam like way in pricing , then 20-40$ should cover everything for most hi end pc games. 10-15$ the low end games which is very attractive
This will bring in buyers to both, but console will be more attractive becuase of saving( psn+). This will increasse hardware revenue, software revenue as well.I do the think systematic structures and all that should be kind of seperate in a way, for saftey measures.
If they want to raise psn+ to 55$-60$ over time then that is acceptable , but make sure the previous buyers of psn + plan are not affected. Make sure they tell the gamer they getting more service just 5$ more and previous buyers are not affected.

Here is the long-run problem with a Netflix-esque model. DEPENDING ON THE PRICE, I know that is a huge depends but hear me out.
1) Pay a subscription for the few games I actually want to play while indirectly paying for all the garbage I do notwant to play.
2) Pay a set amount per title for the handful of games that I want to play while not having to continue the service to access it.
I will not "subscribe" to this service unless it is ridiculously cheap.
I know everyone has their hopes for this, but you guys have no idea how infeasible it is to make a game streaming service work and not such. It's just not possible to do with today's technology. Even at a very very very optimistic 120ms response time from controller action to seeing it's effect on screen (60ms to the servers, 60ms back), games that require any timing, moving enemies, etc etc will be nearly unplayable.
Sony just needs to give us ps1 and ps2 and psp emulation for ps4.
