Sony Network Gets New Boss To Sort PSP Phone
Kaz Hirai just beenÂ promoted to head the new Sony Networked Products and Services division in a Sony reshuffle.
This brings him over from PlayStation toÂ be inÂ charge of everything from PlayStation to the Walkman brand – including Vaio devices and those mysterious â€œnew mobile productsâ€.
HisÂ briefÂ is to oversee theÂ â€œexpansion of the PlayStation Network service platformâ€ which kinda gives me the vibe that Sony wants the PSN to go cross platform with devices.
But the real juice is that Sony specifically states that Hirai will also be in charge of â€œnew mobile productsâ€.
Oh yeah – this must beÂ Sony sortingÂ theÂ PSP phone?
Could be the PSP2 but, c’mon -Â the PSP phone!
Sony only recently blocked Sony Ericsson from developing one Â so this must mean that they want to do it in-house.
So, it looks likeÂ a range ofÂ Sony gadgety joy will be hooking up to the PlayStation Network – downloading movies and music rather than games.
So – do you want a PSP Phone, PSP2 or are you just happy to see the PSN go across other Sony wares?
Let me know good people 🙂
