So, much like many PC games have been for the last 10 years or so? Or any Steam/Origin purchase.
It's hardly a novel concept from Sony - they are just patenting a new way of doing it.

EDIT : For example, allowing background downloads of all games purchased online. File download pausing and resuming etc. If they got their **** together people would use the store like they do Steam and then they would have little to worry about.

Well, that and the fact that I can currently trade-in old games...
