iTunes on the PS3?

Saturday, May 14th, 2005

MacDailyNews is reporting a rumor that Sony may be working with Apple, on 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 […]
