    Google TV Ever Come to The Playstation 3

    01/18/2011

    With the recent launch of their Internet-enabled televisions powered by Google TV, Sony is looking to transform the homespace with two of the most ubiquitous services in the household. But are they forgetting there are 41 million internet-capable Sony devices in homes around the world already?


    Sony and Google seem to really be teaming up. While there already is a Google TV-powered Blu-Ray player, there has been no information whatsoever about any new changes of features coming to the PlayStation 3. The possible PlayStation Phone already seems to be powered by the Android OS, so anything is possible at this moment. Giving the PS3 Google TV would not only increase the functionality of the console, but it would also give the PlayStation a platform to compete with the 3DS’s supposed 3DTV streaming service and the Xbox 360?s inclusion of AT&T U-Verse. It could possibly even lead to the Android platform becoming a PART of the PS3 operating system.

    Having Google Power on the PlayStation 3 would also give the system some much needed non-gaming functionality: apps. The Xbox 360 already has things like Last.fm, Twitter, Facebook, and ESPN on their platform, but they are all custom built into the 360 architecture. Opening up the PS3 to Google applications would flood the system to an unbelievable wealth of apps to choose from, turning it from a gaming console to a true multimedia station. The tag-line “It Only Does Everything” really WOULD be true now.


    While of course none of this has been confirmed by Sony or Google, it really just seems like a good idea. With Microsoft teaming up with AT&T and Apple encroaching on the living room as well as the portable space, the partnership between these two electronic giants seems like an unstoppable force. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    PlayStation Suite Could Hit Google TV

    PlayStation games could soon be playable on your TV - no need for a system.

    Along with the announcement of the NGP - Sony's successor to the PlayStation Portable - the folks at Sony touched on the PlayStation Suite during a recent press event.
    The PlayStation Suite (PSS) is a software platform that's going to bring games from the original PlayStation to Android phones and tablets when it launches. It's exciting stuff for PlayStation fans. After all, having 'Final Fantasy 7' or 'Twisted Metal' available on the go is a very cool option.

    At a roundtable this week, Sony's Kaz Hirai dropped some hints on some very cool new developments with the PSS. Specifically, he said that the PSS could be the killer app for Google TV.

    The company has stated that they'll be focusing on mobile devices for the time being, but we're certainly expecting something Google TV related in the future.
