Sony Netflix cock-block “not specific to Xbox”

Thursday, 20th November 2008 07:57 GMT By Patrick Garratt

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.”

    Licensing.

    It’s just a shame that anyone who doesn’t grasp the legal matters will put it down to Sony arseholery.

    If we’re going to do that then we might as well accuse Microsoft and GameTap of “cock-blocking” with refusing to accommodate the UK. The sad part is, Sony is probably speaking the truth, but sensationalism will have its way, ofc.

    Get away. The licensing issues ‘just so happened’ to occur on the very day that their main rival had their big launch?

    I’m sure it was all just a coincidence. Yes. What else could it have been?
