A week ago today the new Google TV website was launched, and was the first real sign that consumers can see what the search engine giant is up to. We have already seen the unveiling of the Logitech Revue, but today’s event offering details on Sony’s efforts with Google is more of an interest to the gamer.
This is because the PS3 already has services from both Hula Plus and Netflix; so adding Google TV is expected as the next step. There have been a lot of negative views from users over the current streaming services, and one writer on TQcast believes that offering Google TV will help to address these issues.
If this were to happen, then Netflix would no longer need a disc to run, and PlayStation 3 users could have the option to run Chrome OS instead of the current OS.
This could be the perfect deal for both Google and Sony; Google could gain 38 million users, while Sony could help to give PS3 owners what they want. If such a deal were to go ahead, then rival consoles would have something to worry about.
