[When we're looking for blogs on a specific topic, we'll put out a Bloggers Wanted call. Check out the blog prompt, write your own response in the Community Blogs and tag it with the "Bloggers Wanted Essay Response" tag, and you may see your blog promoted to the front page. -- JRo]
Conrad came up with this week's topic, and it was so good i decided to use it. Last week, Microsoft announced its new partnership with a ton of television content providers, adding already to existing services like Netflix and Hulu. More and more, it appears that this generation of consoles are turning into more than just gaming machines; they're becoming multipurpose living room devices.
Your assignment for this week is to share your thoughts on the integration of video game consoles with other types of media and entertainment. Do you think being able to watch Netflix through your PlayStation is a major selling point? Are you concerned that a focus on television and movies will take something away from gaming? Write up a blog that addresses some aspect of the way gaming consoles are integrating into a broader spectrum of entertainment, and you may see your blog promoted to the front page next week.
If you want to participate, just write a C Blog, title it "Integration: [Your Blog's Title]", and select the Bloggers Wanted Essay Response tag. Throughout the week, keep an eye on the blogs and get some discussions going with your fellow Dtoiders, and make sure you look for promoted blogs from last week's topic, Villains.
