Okay, okay. So maybe Sony didn't read my piece written in January titled, How to save the PS3. But maybe they did?!?
I jest of course, however, I bring it up because of this USA Today article which details Sony's plans to make a line of TVs for Wal-Mart and Target.
Near the end of that article is a bulleted list of other plans and information regarding Sony TVs. Among interesting tidbits such as a focus on 1080p and making 50" TVs the defacto size for HD, there is this:
Sony will bundle more too. Rather than try to sell individual products, the company will look to sell bundles or packaged solutions at different customer segments. Recently, for instance, some Japanese engineers visited a U.S. fraternity house to check out how technology was being used. Expect to see things like televisions bundled with PlayStation 3s..
Now, compare that with my suggestion of "The Ultimate Bundle" from my article. I'm the one who came up with the LCD TV and PS3 bundle, dammit! I even threw in surround sound for fun.
Sony, I have you by the balls. Either send me a 46" Bravia (email me and I'll send you my address) or I'll go public with you stealing my idea. If anything happens to me I have a copy of my original post in a safe deposit box in Virginia.
Oh, wait. I said you could freely have my idea. Damn. (Note to self. Don't give Sony free ideas.)
