Very sketchy info right now, but I'm noticing that this rumor is coming close enough to the announcement of the PS4 that it might be of significance:
...Basically, it means Sony is trying to up their game on non-physical media. Not sure how this would pan out, but I could easily see the PS4 having a "Steam" or "OnLive" type mode, where the console was basically a window to the internet (or at least a buffer for a game stored elsewhere).

So we have two rumours going around about Sony. One about streaming/onlive style gaming where the game is residing on a remote host and you're just sending controller input and seeing the results. And one about them interrupting your gameplay to show you ads. If you were to put those two together, you've got interactive cable TV.

The Vita represents why this would happen. Great hardware not selling purely because of price. Customers, unfortunately, have shown Sony that they don't want to pay a premium for good hardware. They want things as cheap as possible, even if it's not as good of an experience. What better way to avoid the $600 price point issue the PS3 had than to release $99 hardware similar to Onlive, and rake in the cash. At least, this their minds this is how it would play out...

Sounds like they'd first test it with PSOne and PS2 games.
