PlayStation Mobile aims for iPhone and Android at Gamescon

PlayStation Mobile aims for iPhone and Android at Gamescon

This week at Gamescon in Cologne, Germany, Sony is making a case for PlayStation Mobile, their next big phase in keeping relevant with the very smart device-minded society we now all live in. This initiative will be aiming for both Apple's mobile OS and Google's Android, but in very different ways for the both of them. While Apple's iPod nano, iPhone, and iPad are all essentially declared enemies of this PlayStation Mobile initiative, Sony is embracing Android as the only 3rd party operating system to be able to run PlayStation-certified games.

Sony on notice: Gauntlet thrown by Wii U and Xbox SmartGlass

Sony on notice: Gauntlet thrown by Wii U and Xbox SmartGlass

E3 2012 is racing at full steam, and already one thing is clear: Sony, for all its PlayStation 3 might, has a challenge on its hands from Microsoft and Nintendo. Whereas gaming so far has centered around a single, big screen and the most engaging, graphically-rich or multiplayer-involving titles, two of the three players have opened the door to multiple screens. Sony may have stitched together PS3 and PS Vita, but it's looking increasingly left behind as its arch rivals each make their play.

Sony PlayStation 4 tipped for 2013

Sony PlayStation 4 tipped for 2013

With games such as Doom 3: BFG Edition still making waves in the industry of what some would call a fading wave for console gaming, Sony's PlayStation 4's release in 2013 is sure to be a hit. That's what "sources close to the matter" speaking with the Wall Street Jounral are saying in hopes that the news this week that an ultra-slick disk-less cloud-based PlayStation was being released was bashed by early critics. This situation reflects essentially what happened when the PSP Go was released, failure that it was with downloadable content only, ditching physical game units altogether.

Sony Xperia S Review

Sony Xperia S Review

The Sony Xperia S is something of a smartphone stepchild: the first smartphone to bear Sony's sole brand in recent years, but developed under the loving care of the Sony Ericsson partnership the Japanese company bought itself out of. It certainly ticks a lot of the right boxes - 720p HD display, high-resolution 12.1-megapixel camera and some reasonably distinctive design - but we've seen our fair share of Android handsets over-promise and under-deliver. So, hangover from the past or a sign of things to come? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

The idea of a Windows Phone-powered Sony phone first came to light when a supposed picture was leaked.

Sony’s Four-Screen Strategy Needs Vita OS

Sony’s Four-Screen Strategy Needs Vita OS

Changes are afoot at Sony: new CEO, new PS Vita on the market, and a new opportunity to demonstrate the company can deliver on its "four-screen" strategy of convergence. Until now, that strategy has been a vague ambition to sell users a Sony TV, phone, tablet and PC. Now, though, with the PS Vita finally reaching US buyers, part of Sony's overall gameplan is starting to become clear. Vita OS is the "thin edge of the wedge" on gaming hardware, Yoshio Matsumoto, director of business at SCE, confirmed last week. Meanwhile, Sony Ericsson is no more, and Sony has sole control of the rudder: the company promised nothing but smartphones for 2012, but that doesn't mean Sony won't sacrifice Android in favor of a platform - and an ecosystem - that it alone controls.

When asked this past November what the possibility was for the operating system to be brought to mobile phones was, mister Yoshio Matsumoto, Director of Business and Sony Computer Entertainment SVP noted that though the Vita OS was made for the Vita itself, its applicability was certainly made with other devices in mind, this being the "thin edge of the wedge" for the operating system.

Sony to debut new Xperia phones at Mobile World Congress
