Should Sony align with Apple/iTunes?

12 replies 12 views Edited Sep 21, 2011

Seriously...another outage?  I don't care how much some people dislike Apple the reality is that they know how to run an online sales business and Sony doesn't.  Wouldn't it just be better for Sony to align their network business with Apple's if that became a possibility?

Does Apple have experiencing designing, maintaining, and updating a worldwide gaming network that I'm not aware of?

hahahahahahaahahahhaahaahahaaahaaahaaahahahahhaah oh wait your serious? I thought you were being ironic! it just works right?

What a joke man, I'd hate for Sony to get in bed with Apple. If your proposing they should go with Apple, why not Amazon, Ebay, Google, or really any other estore? I would honestly never buy another Sony product again if that happened.

No. Selling software online isn't the same as running a community network.

No.

I see your main argument is that, in your expert opinion, Sony can't run a gaming network. Why on earth would you think that Apple does?

For that reason no. I think Sony should add their own music section on the Playstation Store since they are in the music industry.
