Sony patents idea for PS Cloud

Sony has filled out a patent for something called PS Cloud. Cloud is very much like OnLive, you buy games over the Internet using the PS Cloud and play them on Sony's network. This means that the games you pay for aren't actually in your possession and you don't actually play them off a system, instead you stream it from the company server ( Think of YouTube for games ). Sony has only filled out a patent so this could just blow over, it is just funny to see them jump onto the idea so quickly only weeks after OnLive was announced. This does not mean the company is ditching PS3, this PS Cloud might not even get made. When it comes to the idea of Sony wanting to get in on the server gaming idea, Everyone wants their slice, that's just human nature.
