Following the example made by the likes of Netflix, Hulu Plus and Microsoft, Sony has announced that it will develop original TV shows for its PlayStation video game consoles.

The publisher already confirmed the first series, under the name Powers. Based on a graphic novel, the series will revolve around a noir detective living in a world where people have superpowers. Sony’s TV division will produce the show, which was originally being considered for FX. Around 10 episodes have been ordered so far.

No other series have yet been announced, but more are likely to be revealed in a few months at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
