Sony PS3 leads the Pack with Connected Consoles
A recent study by The Diffusion Group has determined that roughly one third of households in the United States with broadband service have a video game console connected to the Internet. It is the opinion of some that game consoles are likely the solution of choice for delivery of mainstream over-the-top (OTT) video content.
Developers have also spent time crafting online portals into virtual reality environments. Online access into the gaming market is also a primary driver for staying connected to the Internet.
As a device choice for those subscribers that want to add OTT content and expand their choices, the game console may be an ideal solution for adding Internet and home computer video to the viewing experience.
