I have doubts that the streaming would be used for PS4 games, because there's just little need. For backwards-compat, Sony NEEDS to do something like this, given the different rumored processor architecture. It'd just be less of a headache to keep PS4 games on disc or available as a download and then take advantage of the advanced hardware the console is equipped with.
I'm not opposed to the idea of streaming games, but I am kind of opposed to the idea of re-purchasing games that you already own on disc. Sony -could- implement a program to remedy that, but it seems unlikely.
I agree with RWilliams. I highly doubt the streaming will see huge use with PS4 games. No one's going to pay money for a hugely expensive box that ends up playing the same games as the much cheaper Ouya or Steambox at the same quality.
At any rate, I don't think it would be wise to invest heavily in an expensive console. With all of the ports and new games coming to Linux (and now working Wine support for NetFlix, LoveFilm, Redbox Instant, etc.), I think it's prime time for a resurgence of media-center PCs.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
