Time Warner CEO Richard Parson has dismissed any effect the PlayStation 3 may have on the adoption of Blu-ray as the next-generation movie format.
While Sony believes the its new home console will help adoption of Blu-ray over the rival HD-DVD format, the media and communications giant has told news.com that it sees the PlayStation 3 as a games machine first and foremost.
"Do I think that the game console platform is really going to drive the conversion [of Blu-ray]? I don't think so," said Parsons, CEO and Chairman of Time Warner.
"People get those things to play games, not watch movies," he added.
Time Warner supports both of the next-generation movie formats with releases from Warner Bros. Entertainment.
