The new app is from Sony Pictures, and will give you access to content from the major Hollywood studio.
Well there you go.. need I say more :)
Lets all point and laugh at the tools poor attempt to be cool.
Since you didn't make a point at all....yes, consider saying more.
That's just the way Microsoft owned Skype is available on the Playstation Vita.
Also isn't crackle on the 360 and that is owned by Sony
Claud3 make a fool out of himself.
Let us not forget all the Sony computers with Windows on them as well.
Agreed. I think the presidents of both companies are having secret affairs with each other but they have to keep their companies looking like rivals to keep suspicion down, but every now and then, something slips, and these apps show up for their respective rival's devices as a by-product. Lol.
that's totally different: Sony put the app on Xbox LIVE. Microsoft didn't put Windows on Sony's computers. Sony paid Microsoft to license the use of Windows on their computers.
So two work together to compete with one another..... Odd :)
It's been like that for longer than most people realize. But it's going to get blown out of proportion (like most things are) and made out to seem like more ( or less) than it really is
sony onced worked with nintendo, microsoft onced worked with sega. while at the same time competing with each other this is nothing new
Nah this isnt trolling. Its more like lacking a brain that thinks properly...
Sony and Microsoft work together more in the industry than most can ever imagine.Sony Pictures,SonyBMG,Sony Aniplex and dozens of other Sony owned media companies including Crackle all sell on Xbox Live marketplace and Zune store. Windows OS is found on Sony's VAIO,Sony Ericsson phones and Skype runs on the PSP and Vita,not to mention tons of other Sony devices.Sony VAIO also allows the Windows name to sell in Asian markets including Japan and South Korea.
Just goes to show that people can work together more harmoniously than fanboys would like to believe.
You people use the 'Windows is on Sony's laptops' like they have a choice and Windows doesn't have a complete monopoly in terms of operating systems. Any hardware manufacturer of desktop and laptop computers is forced to use Windows and Windows alone.
The point is Sony and ms will cooperate if it made sense in business. Just like how apple still get iPhone parts from Samsung even though they are direct competitors. that's why obnoxious fanboys aren't CEOs (not talking about you)
I wonder how Samsung feels about that now... They seem to be going for the throat with those S III commercials.
Apple begs to differ, oh and Sony has a business relationship with MS. Skype has an app available for the PSVita. Just saying.
And apples market share in desktops and laptops is what? Also how many applications are windows only espiicially in the gaming area.
This has been a problem with Sony for a while really. They had some kind of deal a few years ago where they put music up on Xbox Live. I'm not sure they did the same on the PS3. Maybe they did. They have all of these divisions and they act like they're separate companies. They should work together with their own divisions.
Crackle is Sony, Skype is Microsoft. What is the big deal? They are competing in ONE market. The other divisions work together.
It's business Ladies and Gentlemen! Just business. The only ones at each other throats are the fanboys! There are so many different instances of collaboration between companies that are supposedly enemies it's ridiculous.
So an attempt at hooplah over Sony Pictures, but almost ZILCH about Sony-owned Crackle? Is it because Sony's logo isn't in big bold letters? Jeez...
Big companies license each others patents all the time at all levels of technology and software. This article is just another blatant attempt to fan the flames of the fanboys and generate hits. You'd be surprised at how many so-called competing brands in all consumer industries are actually owned by the same company...never mind doing business with rivals.
Things like this are normal. Why would anyone want to make an article of this?
I must be missing something because if I am not mistaken these type of business partnerships between tech companies (even though rivals in a certain industry) is a common thing.
