    Playstation 3 users may get the opportunity to use Google TV pretty soon to make use of the breaks between gameplays!!


    Though this is a gossip from unverified sources, the much-prospective integration is highly probable as the Japanese Electronics giant Sony has launched its own set top box with Google TV support. Also, Sony is already offering the video streaming service from Netflix; so, from the users’ perspective, they won’t need to pay for another box to enjoy video streams of Google TV and from the maker’s perspective, Sony gets to keep the gamers in its gaming world, extended to Google’s vast internet empire. Also, with its recently confirmed launch of Playstation Phone, it can then offer top rated high volume games in discs while releasing the small games in internet to play directly from the web, if Playstation Phones are equipped with support for PS3 integration.


    The aforementioned possibilities with Playstation 3 must be keeping Sony busy, as both of the options are in grab for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 users. Microsoft has recently announced to provide AT&T U-Verse support for online video steaming in Xbox 360. And it already provides option of gaming directly from web by the integration of Windows Phone and Xbox 360.


    With Google TV on PS3, Sony might be able to offer a more complete package to enthusiastic gamers, with the opportunity to use huge amount of internet apps and gaining an upper hand in the process. But at the end of the day, everything depends on Sony and Google’s decision makers; we, the enthusiasts, can only speculate more.

    Certainly would make for a powerful Google TV box, the lack of HDMI input on existing PS3s seems to be a stumbling block of how the whole experience would work.
