Major League Baseball Swings Into PS3

Major League Baseball Swings Into PS3

While Sony certainly wants you to buy a Bravia TV, they really don't want you watching TV on it. They'd rather you just do all your content viewing through your PS3, and that move is one step closer with a major announcement with the MLB today.

Sony has teamed up with the baseball league to offer its MLB.TV service, an Internet subscription package that allows users to watch every single MLB game live on their PC. A special version of the service will be made available for the PS3, assumedly at the same $120/year cost.

"We're excited about bringing MLB onto the console ... this is something you can't find on any other console," said Sony Computer Entertainment America SVP Peter Dille.

It is the first time ever in the US that a video game company in the US has teamed up with a media outlet to provide native support for live streaming of TV content.

"This is one of the biggest deals we're bringing to the PS3, and it won't be the last one, there's lots of conversations going on," Dille added.

The PS3 is becoming more and more of a sweeping entertainment device, as the only console that supports Blu-ray Disc playback, the first gaming system to air an entire TV series exclusively through its own digital distribution, and now the ability to watch live programming. It already has a robust live TV service in Europe but rumors about that coming to the US have fallen flat.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
