And it apparently is hoping that itsPlayStation 3 game console will act as a converging point, Already capableof playing Blu-ray discs and streaming HDTV content from its online movieservice, Sony is now planning to expand the library of films it can offerPS3 owners. Currently only films produced by Sony's Columbia, TriStar,Screen Gems, and Sony Pictures Classics are offered via the Internet.
