The Laugh Factory Bringing Stand-Up to PS3
Sony has announced on their PlayStation blog that a new comedy app is coming soon for the PlayStation 3.
Officially called The Laugh Factory Live, which is named after the famous stand-up comedy club in Hollywood, will feature on-demand shows featuring famous stand-up performers from the past and present.
The Laugh Factory Live will debut on PSN on September 1 and the content will be free though December. If gamers want to continue the laughs on their videogame system, they’ll be required to pay $3 a month in order to access the comedy concerts.
For a little over a year now, Microsoft has been trying to turn the Xbox 360 into not only a multimedia gaming machine, but also an Internet set-top box, which allows users to access video and TV content, and includes cable TV stations like HBO and ESPN.
While Sony is clearly behind in this technology with their PlayStation 3, they’re clearly moving slowly into the same direction as Microsoft.
