Ubisoft CEO on next-gen consoles: the more multimedia features, the better the game sales

According to Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, PS4 and Xbox One’s multimedia features will make people buy games, just like how people who bought a PS2 to watch DVDs eventually purchased games. (PS4, Ubisoft, Xbox One, Yves Guillemot)

I agree, however he forsgets that PS3 is the more known streaming device (For UK anyway).

PS3 UK has BBC, ITV, 4, 5, netflix and lovefilm.

I disagree with this statement completely. He compares people buying PS2s for DVD which was true. But it's 2013 and there are literally HUNDREDS of ways of consuming media now. We don't need this BS "all-in-one" box (and I'm not specifically talking just about xb1 either) to watch and play everything. The problem with technology in general right now is there's this emphasis on 'do everything do everything-appeal to everyone' and there's no real focus anymore. It's this corporate fantasy of reaching everyone by doing everything and I think we're seeing with Sony what happens when you FOCUS on core elements as your strong point, rather than trying to be everything to everyone.

paid off PS4, but absolutely loving the X1's multimedia efforts.
