Sony's Console Wars Are Coming

Sony Pictures Entertainment has been registering a lot of odd console war domain names.

It's the summer of domain names. Last week it was Ubisoft's mysterious Initiate; now Sony Pictures Entertainment has gotten in on the act. No word yet on what the project may be, but every name registered points to a console war premise. The full list is:

console-war.net
console-warmovie.com
console-wars.net
console-warsmovie.com
consolewar-movie.com
consolewar-movie.net
consolewar.net
consolewarmovie.com
consolewars-movie.com
consolewars-movie.net
consolewarsmovie.com
theconsolewar-movie.com
theconsolewar-movie.net
theconsolewar.net
theconsolewarmovie.com
theconsolewars-movie.com
theconsolewars-movie.net
theconsolewarsmovie.com

As it's Sony Pictures Entertainment doing this and not, say, Sony Computer Entertainment, odds favor this being a big or small screen project. Sony Pictures Entertainment has its finger in a lot of pies - comedies, dramas, reality shows and soaps on television, bigger budget items on the silver screen - so this could be released in almost any format. The folks at Fusible wonder if this is part of the marketing for Sony's next-gen console; for my part, I'm holding out hope for a historical retrospective of some kind. However those who wonder whether it's going to be a screwball nerd comedy movie may be closer to the mark. As Sony isn't giving away its secrets, your guess is as good as mine.
