    Thumbs down

    "this is a large step forward to getting the PlayStation from a dedicated powerful games device to being much more of a core entertainment hub."

    You know what would be a large step? DLNA!

    I'm tired of seeing all these "rental/subscription services" popping up on PS4. It's like they're only adding "features" that make them more money.

    I'd start your phrase in the "they're" part. xD
    Rental services are an atempt to change the market to their advantage in several ways, including that people pay them directly for games and content without intermidiaries and reducing second hand purchases and even copy. I won't be surprised there will eventually be rental/streaming exclusives. But for long market analysts have been predicting this kind of shift or atempted shift. I don't like it but many are for it. Even some game developers (like Hideo Kojima) have spoken in favor of streamed games and videogame websites and magazines have been promoting such ideas, making many end-consumers to support it as well.
    This has some big obstacles though, mainly, most of the world doesn't have the quality of internet required for it, so at this point, they are only planting seeds and applying fertilizer
    On the other hand, on this particular case, it's TV, nothing different from the way "premium" channels are already sold, and I welcome it, as more concurrency usually means better services and lower prices.
