Sony name-drops TiVo in their PS3 press release

In a press release that is primarily about the PS3 selling one million units, selling at a faster pace than the PS2 or XBox 360 did at launch, was this:

Consumer demand for the PSP(R) (PlayStation(R)Portable), the company’s popular handheld entertainment system, also remained strong this past year. New software releases continued PSP’s momentum in offering console-quality gaming on-the-go, from key franchises such as SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 2 to award-winning original IP such as LocoRoco(TM). SCEA also drove interest in the PSP system via expanded entertainment capabilities, including TiVoToGo(TM), which enables PSP owners to watch television programming transferred from their TiVo wherever, whenever; support for video podcasts broadcasted through Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds; and a Remote Play feature for streaming media content (music, videos and photos) from a PS3 to a PSP.

That’s a little unusual for Sony, to name drop other brand names.

    Given Sony’s current geek cred, one would think TiVo would be in a rush to release a statement that it was only one date, and they’re really just friends…acquaintances, really.

    Seriously. I’m totally seeing Kelly and Ryan from The Office here.
