MacDailyNews is reporting a rumor that Sony may be working with Apple, on support for iTunes and iPod synchronization on the up-coming PS3.
Given that Sony was present at the last stevenote, and Apple has already announced their support for blu-ray, the PS3/iTunes rumor isn’t that far fetched. But what if there were more to the story than just some simple, albeit handy iTunes integration with the Play Station 3?
Since we’re what-if-ing here, what are the chances the PS3 will become the platform for an Apple/Sony co-braded on-line movie delivery service? Think about it, no matter how many mini’s Apple sells between now and the PS3’s launch, they likely wouldn’t amount to 1/8 of the PS3’s that will be attached to televisions within a week of its launch.
Do I really see this happening? A marriage of Apple and Sony in the PS3, with goals of delivering movies via a on-line iMovie service? No not really, there are as many obstacles as there are inroads, but on the other hand, if the two companies were of like mind, I have no doubt, they could find a way to make it work.
