Sony said on Thursday it will launch a video-sharing site in Japan on Friday, marking the electronics and entertainment firm's first step towards challenging Google's YouTube service.

News Corp. and NBC Universal said last month they would also launch a free online video site this year, as traditional media firms scramble to keep up with video sharing.

Sony also hopes to introduce its service, called eyeVio, abroad, but said it first wanted to gauge the reception at home before drawing up an overseas launch schedule.

One wonders how many video sharing sites can survive, or how each will evolve its own identity. Not sure if "eyeVio" is particularly catchy. Probably better than SonyTube, though.

Well anything has to be better than youtube's compression, so I thini competition will be good for that.

As for Sony, I can only imagine what sort of rootkit is involved in using their player....;)

The next video sharing site is going to need to offer something the other ones haven't. I've tried a good chunk of the current ones, and with the exception of a few minor features, they're all basically the same.

I have a very unique idea for "Video Sharing", unfortunately it would cost millions to develop but could become the ULTIMATE expression to the Video Sharing Concept.

VC Anyone, I am a crappy sales-person....
