Apple has been doing that since before windows.  Their whole idea of phones, mp3 players, tablets, etc all running iOS.  I think lots of companies are going that way.


Yeah, I was talking about the more public announcement of something like One MS or One Sony.

Of course Apple and even Google are aiming for the same thing.

PlayStation Now, the game streaming is official!

They will offer a subscription fee and option to buy titles individually. Sounds like no free option for ps+ users though.

Beta for NA service to start at the end of January.

Cloud based TV service for the US this year.

TV, TV, TV!


Dynamic guide service that combines live tv and streaming services, sounds like the One Guide from MS.

Seems like Sony is going to push this angle pretty hard.

Life Space UX being shown off.

 

Looks to be similar to illuminroom that Microsoft showed but for movies. Basically a fancy projector to watch movies with. 4K compatible of course. 147" images. Releasing in US in summer 2014.

Kaz is coming off as very passionate and it resonates with me. Great to see him talking in this format.

But nothing else mentioned about the VR headset though, so that didn't happen.

But heck, I'll take the backwards compatibility server and tv service announcements over a VR headset.

illumiroom was just a projector which expanded your tv's image, this thing is in a completely different field. Touch screen furniture and close range projections at 4k resolution.

 

I like the skylight which projects an image on your roof making it seem like you have a skylight and are in the same place as the image on-screen projects. I see a lot of possibilities for the touch-screen mirror. (e.g Having it link to facebook and having a wall of pictures which you can scroll through with the touch features, no need to put up single framed pictures anymore. Or linking it with your tv, projector or ps4 and have it as a movie library where you can scroll through your movie collection or allow friends/family to scroll through and pick one which then starts the movie on your tv or projector (or tv via ps4), Plus many other possibilities.)

 

The touch-screen on the coffee table looks okay and would be useful for checking weather and reading the news when waking up and having breakfast / coffee in the morning but I don't see myself using it very often if I had one.
