217w ago - According to SideQuesting.com (linked above), Google TV is rumored to be heading to Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system as part of a Spring 2011 update.

Currently Google TV is already integrated into upcoming Sony Blu-ray players including the [Register or Login to view links], so although the rumor is unconfirmed thus far for PS3 it does seem to make sense.

To quote: "Sony currently provides both Netflix and Hulu Plus apps to its users, as well as Sony Pictures films over PSN. The PS3 also allows for networked streaming. It is clear that not only does Sony want the PS3 to be a gaming hub, but the premiere multimedia hub of the home as well.

GoogleTV provides the ability to view any media at any time, web or live, something that few other devices accomplish effectively and no other gaming device can do. This is a huge advantage for Sony of they can extend Android's reach.

With Google TV having the ability to include apps, this provides a quicker method of acquiring many of the same apps that the Xbox has (Last.fm, Twitter, Facebook) and more. The PS3 can more accurately become an "everything to everyone" product if it has access to all of the apps that we like to use already."

Not necessarily since Google TV also adds internet TV functionality, so I'm guessing for those that do not have one they will still be able to view Internet TV, and for those that do have one they will be able to use the full feature set.
