13w ago - At SCE's Japan Press Conference 2013 Sony unveiled a PS Vita TV device alongside a video of it in action below.
To quote from Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman: This afternoon in Tokyo (11:00pm tonight, Pacific Time), Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia is holding a press conference to make some announcements of interest to Japanese gamers.
The presentation is tailored specifically for the Japan and Asian regions, and the news here will not necessarily be relevant for North American gamers.
Nonetheless, we're happy to host a livestream of the event here in case you wanted a glimpse into what's next for PlayStation fans in the East.
The show is set to kick off at 11:00pm Pacific Time, and will feature a live English translation. Enjoy!
198w ago - A few months ago we reported that Sony was planning to combine its main division with the PlayStation 3 based Sony Computer Entertainment subsidiary, and today Kotaku (linked above) has confirmed that SCE will temporarily become known as SNEP.
Sony CEO Kaz Hirai will be heading the new division, however, it is still unknown what SNE stands for (perhaps Sony Networked Entertainment) as this is in line with Sony's united-device agenda to reward brand loyalty.
For example, if you have a Bravia connected to the Internet, then you should be able to access the PlayStation Video Store from your Bravia, and use money in your PSN wallet to stream a film, without ever needing to switch on your PS3 or PSP.
To quote: "Starting on April 1 of this year, Sony's reorganization will take effect. Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai will head a new business group that brings together Sony's mobile electronics and personal computers.
Instead, the wholly-owned Sony subsidiary will be centered around networked devices and will be known as SNE Platform or SNEP, the Sony Group stated in an official release. SNEP? Yes, SNEP.
