Sony and NTT partner up

  Sony Corporation and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) have officially announced the idea to bring broadband gaming to the PS2 in Japan. NTT, a leading Japanese telecommunication company, and Sony have already experimented with providing entertainment over fiber-optic cables. The new service, which will begin in April, will provide Japanese consumers with online games, financial productivity tools, and forms of entertainment such as music, television, and movies. The PS2 service will use asymmetric digital subscriber lines (ASDL) and will be launched next year.

   As of September, there were more than 350,000 subscribers in Japan with ASDL lines, compared to 70,000 in May of the same year. In terms of plans for North America and Europe, at E3 this year, the company announced partnerships with AOL Time Warner, Macromedia, Real Networks, and Cisco to offer various applications for its PS2 network service early next year.
