One of his many interesting statements came when he explained his company’s vision for the PlayStation 3, saying Sony’s “competition is not Microsoft or Nintendo, but basically any form of entertainment that is competing for the consumersÂ’ attention.”

Hirai defined the PS3, PS2, and PSP systems as entertainment platforms before citing the real challenge facing Sony’s machines. “We need to make sure we offer the most compelling entertainment – not videogame entertainment but in entertainment in general,” he said.

Furthermore, SCE’s head honcho expressed his confidence in the PlayStation’s position on the gaming map. In particular, he commented, “I like to think that weÂ’ve got a very well balanced portfolio with PS3, PSP and you canÂ’t discount the PS2.”
