Kaz Hirai: Sony is 'in discussions with non-Sony companies' over PlayStation Suite

Wondering whether Sony's PlayStation Suite will ever really leave its nest? While the SDK won't be out until next month, SCE Chairman Kaz Hirai just told us here at AsiaD that this Android-friendly framework's still open to all other manufacturers, and he emphasized that it "isn't an ecosystem where we want to keep everything within the Sony family" while pimping the three PlayStation Certified Android devices so far: Xperia Play, Tablet S and Tablet P. Kaz also confirmed that Sony's currently "in discussions with non-Sony companies to bring them onboard," but as to when this will come to fruition, the company will make those announcements "when it's time to go public with it," so we shall see.

Great so my console is going to be depressed and anxious 24/7

Seraphim21h ago

come now Fox, we all know you also have bouts of enjoyment while playing some games. Therefore it's not all depression and anxiety, just 90% that. ;P

No, when it knows you are depressed, then it would cheer you up, to keep gamers in a good mental state.

Is Peter Molyneux working for Sony now?

RonnySins19h ago

No, thanks. I want to play games, not to be a lab rat for your experiments.

Seraphim17h ago(Edited 17h ago)

technically this could be used to enhance games. Struggling with something and just broke your controller. We see you, dial down the difficulty to noob so you can finally have that dopamine rush of excitement which comes from finally beating that boss...

I mean, I agree, no thanks, but patents like these tend to be rather premature and something that wouldn't come to fruition for a few+ more decades. Proof of concept and trademark so others can't capitalize on the idea... Even then, it did come to fruition it still requires the player to have a camera in their room or a headset on. Long as they don't force something like this similar to what XB did with Kinect then to each their own I suppose. It's a hard pass for me though, and if they tried to force something like this on a PS console, see ya later PS.

congratulations sony well done

Cacabunga20d ago

We need first party exclusives to keep gamers excited and those sales up..
Announce a new Killzone or start with a remake of the second one. Sony has its flagship FPS but doesn’t believe enough in it!!
Show us that gaas format is not a big part of the way forward.

DefenderOfDoom220d ago

Since the launch of PS4 Killzone Shadow Fall has been the only Sony 1st party FPS campaign released. Would love a new Killzone or Resistance.

Eonjay20d ago

Very solid quarter and this doesn't even include Spiderman 2.

stonecold320d ago

Eonjay20d ago

shadowT20d ago

Hofstaderman20d ago

Nobody stopping this train. Well done and well deserved.

JusttJD009920d ago

Wait... that can't be...

Sony was done for and everyone would switch to X-Box because of Starfield & activision/Blizzard!!!
How... how can that be?!?!

Ah, right... we like quality games and that's why we stick with Playstation.
