Sony Computer Entertainment Temporarily Becomes SNEP

300°
251w 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.

To quote: Imagine playing a video game bundled with a tangible robot that rolls around on your carpet. Sounds unbelievable, but Sony Computer Entertainment filed a patent application for just that in June of last year.

The robot is designed with a camera (item 14) to detect its surroundings and a display (18) which can show images. A microphone that reacts a user's voice and speaker allows the robot to respond to sound as well. Sony also plans to add a position detection sensor to the robot such as an acceleration sensor, gyro sensor, or possibly a GPS receiver.

Unfortunately, the patent doesn't give any clues on how the robot can be used for a game. The document details the information processing system which lets the robot respond to commands even though a player's viewpoint is different than the robot's. Remember, if this is going...
