Sony talks future handheld innovation

Though the words ‘PSP’ and ‘two’ are yet to emerge from the lips of Sony, SCEE president Andrew House has told MCV of his company’s future plans for innovation in the handheld space.

We demonstrated with PS2 that with the right value proposition, the right long-term attention and the right global reach to emerging markets, that there is much more longevity for a platform than people had envisioned before,” he said in an exclusive interview.

I am not sure I can characterise the portable space as being exactly the same. The pace of change in the portable space – phones in particular – is so much quicker. But I think with the current PSP, there are opportunities to reach out to new audiences if you can hit the right value proposition.

Beyond that, yes we are a company that’s history is based on innovation, and we will look to apply that innovation in the portable space. But these aren’t plans I can talk about now.”
