The Fresno Bee's Rory Appleton talks about PlayStation and Xbox TV shows.
I though this whole revolution and total control of the living room was going to be about providing a comprehensive streaming service tied to Live/PSN to out-Netflix Netflix. All we got was the completely misguided plugging one box into another from one company and nothing from the other.
While all this media functionality and video streaming is nice, someday I wish we would just play games on our consoles...
Wait, PS4 has TV shows too, I thought that is exclusive to XB1. S/
No and im sure Sony will do it better since it have a Movie division so they know a little about making shows and movies
The PS3 had TV shows. An anime and reality show. Only the actual streaming was an issue.
what could Sony or MS really bring to streaming at this point? oh, apparently exclusive TV series... ... yeah, alright. inb4 uploaded illegally to torrent sites
The only thing that could happen would be an option for specific TV/cable channels. Not that it would given their monopoly.
Suprise suprise. Sony waves their hands and says " were making tv shows too!" Argh. I own their ps3 and love it but I hate the way they conduct themselves sometimes. Just run with your own business model and stop copying MS.
Butter Sony have been in the tv show business longer than ms....breaking bad.....also, Sony also have their own streaming service. Crackle! Heard of it. Crackle also have exclusive tv show. Think before you talk.
Sony had exclusive TV shows on the PS3. This isn't new.
It's interesting how Apple is getting involved in TV now. They are talking with comcast right now for some TV deal. So we got Sony and Microsoft getting shows, then we have apple trying to get some deal with comcast.
First of all, I would like to start on MS and say they have done a great job and taking massive risks. Started with xbox Live and making it possible to buy/rent movies & TV shows. Now they are trying to produce exclusive TV series for the Xbone. Now to move on to Sony, they should be able to pull this off easily considering they have a Sony pictures. Looked at the list of tv series Sony Pictures has on wiki and it has some good titles, the rest were all unheard of from me (Not including Breaking Bad). Anyway. What I wanted to say is that Sony has an advantage but they should have been pushing this a while ago. They keep taking the safe route. I think MS sold movies before PSN did. That is ridiculous.
