ESH | Sony Has Hardware Synergy

The goal, it seems, of the newest set of gam­ing plat­forms is to be a cen­tral unit of enter­tain­ment for your entire liv­ing room. One com­pany that has done a pretty great job of infil­trat­ing everyone’s liv­ing room has to be Apple. It seems pretty stan­dard for a house to at least have some com­bi­na­tion of iPad, iPod and iPhone some­where in there. This begs the ques­tion, is it really the right angle to cre­ate one thing that han­dles the entire liv­ing room? This is the tac­tic being attempted by the Wii U and Xbox One, but Sony is tak­ing an approach very sim­i­lar to Apple by facil­i­tat­ing syn­ergy between both of their gam­ing platforms.
