Back in my day a video game console was a video game console. Now? They’re all over the place. The latest example: Sony has inked a deal with Major League Baseball to bring live baseball games to a PS3 near you.
No price has been announced for the service. Plain ol’ MLB.tv costs you $100 per year, or $20 per month. HD costs extra. I guess the league has to pay for those fancy camera somehow.
I think in the UK you can watch Sky Sports live on the Xbox 360, and word on the street is that Microsoft is, or has been, trying to convince Disney to send over ESPN programming to Xbox Live.
Not sure I understand the point of this, but if it floats your boat, eh, no harm there.
