Sony’s played down the fact it’s stopped Columbia movies being streamed onto Xbox 360’s via Netflix by saying it’s an issue not specific to the platform. Happens all the time, apparently.

“This issue is not specific to Xbox or any other individual platform,” a Sony Pictures spokesperson told MTV.

“Sony Pictures is currently in discussions with the relevant parties to resolve certain licensing matters related to the distribution of its motion pictures.

“Given the ongoing nature of these discussions, we don’t think it is appropriate to comment further at this time.”
