The funny thing is, while the Xbox One was the console that was unveiled with the ‘TV! TV! TV!’ mantra, and while it id the console that got that stigma, nothing actually ever came of Microsoft’s Xbox branded TV ventures; meanwhile, Sony smartly managed to slip in their own PlayStation exclusive TV show, called Powers, which debuts this March exclusively on PlayStation.

The first three episodes will debut on March 10 on the PlayStation Store, and after that, a new episode will debut every Tuesday on the store until the Season is done. The first episode will also be available to everyone for free, and the entire season will be available to all PS+ members without any additional charge, although Sony isn’t exactly making it clear about whether regular PSN members will have a way to watch the show without subscribing to PS+.

Still, though… if watching TV shows is why you buy your consoles, this will be good news to you, I guess.

    There was a reason the new Microsoft CEO killed the tv studio and that’s because it’s impossible for them to make money with it. Sony might be in a better situation was they can use stuff from Sony’s movie studio but the end result remains the same. They wont make any money. If you are giving away a show to people who already subscribe you are already losing money. Each episode cost money to make but you earn zero in return.

    Sure it can be cool for fans to see gaming related media but… Its not something that can be sustained unless you start charging for episodes. If anything whether from Sony of ms, in the future we might still see original media but they will contract out to existing studios not build new studios themselves. It was a HORRIBLE idea from don Mattrick. He spent half a million dollars for nothing, that’s money that could have gone to games. They were also looking at 200-300 million per year in operating costs. I’m glad they killed it.
