Sony Going All In On PlayStation Network Revival And Commitment To Gamers
The world of tech has changed, and the gaming side of the house seems to be Sony's best bet for long-term rejuvination. According to plans, Sony is aiming to "reposition the video console warhorse as a hub for a network of streamed services," rivaling iTunes and Netflix in the world of streaming movies/music/social. It's hoping to extract more dollars from its base of 52 million network users, making it the most profitable sector in the entire company.
Starting with gaming and seeing what works makes sense. Sony has been spread out across various divisions for years, and it hasn't worked out well for it recently. By focusing on an area that it knows well, and that is already seeing success, seems like a wise move to conserve money and target resources at what's being demanded.
