CNET News Blog, January 7, 2008:
Speaking to reporters at CES, Sony CEO Howard Stringer said that the company's challenge this year is to "enter the battle against the software companies."
As his first example, Stringer said that Sony will expand the PlayStation Network, transforming it into a platform that also delivers video. Sony will announce changes to the PlayStation 3 in two months.
Stringer also said Sony is "getting into the rhythm of innovation," and will start coming out with more innovative products.
Additional footnotes include Stringer's reaction to rumors that the Blu-ray consortium paid money to Warner for exclusivity, Sony Ericsson's move in North America, the future of the Cell processor, and Sony's plan to take on the Wii.
