MSN makes the case for a somewhat hostile takeover of the Japanese electronics giant here.
Needless to say, this would be massive- a move of epic proportions. Apple has shown interest in gaming and television in a big way as of late with it's iPhone/iPad game pushes and Apple TV revamp. But those are a pair of things that Sony already does very well, has a huge amount experience with, and has a respected name with. An iCompany takeover of Sony seems like a pretty good fit to me.
That said though, there's no hard proof that this is even being seriously discussed right now and to say that details are light is probably an overstatement. Bottom line? There might be nothing to this at all, but if there is... it's a game changer in quite a few ways.
