Quick Quotes: Microsoft will “have no choice” but to make a TV, says Perry

Tuesday, 7th February 2012 15:49 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

“Digital TVs are including all of that media stuff. I think the mistake that the console companies are making is not a mistake of their choice – it’s the evolution they have to go through. Once the other media hubs can have games – and I don’t mean Checkers, but things like Call of Duty – the public will get confused. With that in mind, who is able to make a TV? Sony is already making them, so it will have to take all that stuff into its TVs. So: my prediction is that Microsoft will have to make a TV. What choice do they have? There have been lots of reports that Apple has bought out a large LCD panel-making company. It’s pretty obvious that they’re on the trail too.” – David Perry to CVG.

    I see his point – but if MS tries to get into TVs (even specialized) then they’re suddenly competing with Samsung, LG, etc. and I’m not sure they really want to take that path.

    So far as I can see the only hardware that’s ever worked out for them was the 360 – pretty much everything else, Zune, etc. seems to fail and I’m not sure – despite their wealth – they would really want to end up competing in the seriously tough market of TVs.
