Why doesn't Sony partner with Google for future UI's?

Does it not seem like sony seems to be a little underprepared for this type of development. Like Xbox has microsoft which ok they have never been the GUI kings but they can get things done fast and right sony doesn't seem to be the company to do this. They may have a little department but partenering with Apple of Google would give us a far better product with faster develoment and updates. I mean they work with AMD for hardware why not someone for software? Like they certainly don't strike me as a great software company why do they want to do this themselves anyway?

 

I'd rather have them just make games and technology for games and leave Operating systems to the big guys or even a good little guy like someone with a linux build. I mean what they do is kinda cute with the Vita and Ps4 but comparable to the market its far from competative and the time it takes them is pretty unreasonalbe, like OSX was built in less time lol

Honesty, it would be a cool idea to bring Google apps (the closely thing we get is Youtube app). but sadly, it won't happen. but I rather get Sony to open a studio that can focus on Software.

While I wouldn't say this is a horrible idea, it's hard for me to get behind since I feel like Google has their hands in WAY too many things in our world as it is.

I would not be against the idea as Android is one of the best OSs out there. Although I don't think it will happen. The least Sony can do is partner with Google to put the Chrome Webrowser on the PS4 and Vita, as Sony doesn't seem know how to make a good webbrowser to save their life.

One does not simply, "partner" with Google. Or as I like to call them "we own this now inc."

Because then you have to PAY Google everytime you sell a PS4.

This is a Terrible idea... 

Please, we don't need Apps. that have nothing to do with Gamming on the PS4... 

Secondly, we don't even need a You Tube App. either... The way it was done on PS3 was far terribly done... 

What is wrong with using the Web Browser for You Tube, it's far better anyways? 

I am not a Fan of Google, & since they took over You Tube, they ruined You Tube... 

Google has no place on a Console, just saying, it just doesn't belong there... ~_~ 

Lastly, Sony needs to get rid of Net Flix, it doesn't belong on a Gamming Console either...
It has in no way shape or form, anything to do with Games, ~_~

Hey, Yo, Waaaaazzzzuuupp!!! .................................................................................................................

sorry dude, haven't you seen a ton of "OMG WHERE IS YOUTUBE ON MA PS4?!"-related OPs about that?

 

those op REALLY WANT YOUTUBE TO PS4. (same for that Share Button feature) together with DLNA and MP3 player, besides PS4 was suppose to be build as a "gaming machine".

 

also trying to get Sony to getting rid of Netflix, welp, Sony wouldn't want the risk. you would be seeing many "SONY WHY DID YOU REMOVE NETFLIX" rage OPs alot. 

 

btw, I don't think google screwed up Youtube...unless were talking about Google+ Comment Section, Content ID and Layout badly optimized

Google does make good Operating Systems, that's true.

However, there are a number of things wrong with this suggestion. Firstly, the UI on the PS4 is really nice at this point, except for the neverending scroll through everything you've installed. Second, the operating system and UI must be designed from the ground up, and looking forward, to make room for games. That's what Sony knows how to do, and Google doesn't. Lastly, why would Sony want to pay Google for every PS4 sold? 

Oh, and the Xbox UI is trash. BLOCKS, BLOCKS EVERYWHERE!
