Sony might have grander virtual reality ambitions for the PlayStation 5 beyonda headset and traditional controllers to let you play games Ready Player One-style in a body suit
Sony Corp sees the smartphone business as indispensable to its brand portfolio, its CEO said, bucking calls from some investors that the Japanese electronics firm should scrap the money-losing business. Sony's consumer electronics hardware business "has centred on entertainment since our foundation, not daily necessities like refrigerators and washing machines," Kenichiro Yoshida told a group of journalists on Wednesday. The business, originally a joint venture with Sweden's Ericsson that Sony took full control of in 2012, has a global market share of less than 1%, shipping just 6.5 million handsets annually, mainly to Japan and Europe, according to Sony's financial statement.
Epic Games grossed a $3 billion profit in 2018. But how does a game like Fortnite actually make money? Here's an explanation of how this popular game brings in the cash.
Sony's next-generation console isn't due to launch anytime this year , but the tech giant has been surprisingly generous with details. During a corporate strategy presentation, the company has listed all the information it has revealed so far, confirming yet again that the PS5 will have backwards compatibility. Since it has a similar architecture to the PS4, it will be able to play games designed for the current-gen console and will also be compatible with the current version of PlayStation VR.
Yoshida, who took the helm a little over a year ago, addressed shareholders at the company’s investor day on Tuesday at Sony’s headquarters in Tokyo. The beefier device is designed to help PS4 users switch easily, Yoshida said.The new device will come with remote play, which lets users play console games from their phones, tablets and PCs.
Sony's WH-1000XM3 headphones are the gold standard for wireless, noise-canceling headphones. Not only are they comfortable, but they sound amazing. And while their biggest downside is the $350 price tag, Sony has a solution for that too. The company's new WH-XB900N Extra Bass headphones offer noise-canceling for $100 less than the flagship model.
Perhaps no one was more shocked than employees of Sony’s PlayStation division, who have spent almost two decades fighting the U.S. software giant in the $38 billion video game console market. Last week, the companies announced a strategic partnership to co-develop game streaming technology and host some of PlayStation’s online services on the Redmond-based company’s Azure cloud platform. It comes after PlayStation spent seven years developing its own cloud gaming offering, with limited success.
Microsoft Corp and Sony Corp on Thursday said they struck a strategic partnership in which Sony would use Microsoft's cloud for streaming games and media and the two would work together to develop image sensors. "For many years, Microsoft has been a key business partner for us, though of course the two companies have also been competing in some areas," Sony Chief Executive Kenichiro Yoshida said in a statement.
Sony shares jumped on Friday after the company announced a $1.8bn share buyback and a video game streaming and AI partnership with Microsoft. The Japanese electronics and entertainment group said on Thursday ...
Microsoft and Sony have put almost two decades of rivalry aside and joined forces against Google, Amazon and Apple, as the world’s biggest technology companies prepare to go to war over the future of the $135bn-a-year video games market.
The Tokyo-based company soared as much as 8.8% on Friday after announcing it will purchase as much as 4.8% of its outstanding shares, spending up to 200 billion yen ($1.8 billion). Yoshida’s move underscores a commitment to supporting the stock price as Sony became the latest Japanese company to announce a buyback of at least $1 billion. Escalating tensions between the U.S. and China now also cloud the global economic outlook.
While the companies have worked together in some parts of their businesses, Sony’s PlayStation and Microsoft’s Xbox compete fiercely, particularly for the attention of hard-core gamers. At the same time, as both companies face rivals such as Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Apple Inc. and Amazon.com Inc., Sony will want cloud horsepower to run its services.

The redesigned Apple TV app aims to solve some of the headaches that have emerged in the streaming media era. A show's past seasons, for example, might be available on Hulu, Netflix Inc or iTunes, while current episodes require cable or purchase, leaving customers juggling multiple remotes. Available in more than 100 markets, Apple's new app pulls many of those services together to show viewers where they can watch live or on-demand movies, TV shows, news and sports via a single search, or through personalized recommendations.
