Sony Corporation’s chief executive Kenichiro Yoshida is giving a high-profile speech at the CES technology show in Las Vegas later today. Ahead of the event, he talked to the New York Times about how one of his key messages will be a call for more collaboration between Sony’s entertainment divisions: music, movies and gaming.
‘Mr. Yoshida wants to make better use of the company’s online PlayStation Network as a way to bring Sony movies, shows and music directly to consumers,” is how the NYT paraphrased his comments, noting that the PlayStation Network community now has more than 80 million monthly active users. ‘Sony’s three separately run entertainment businesses — music, gaming and motion pictures — have been told from on high that it is time to collaborate more consistently,” continued the piece.
Yoshida described PlayStation Network as “a very strong entertainment platform for all of Sony — very suitable for video and music content”. We may find out more about how that content will be surfaced, in his speech later today.
