Hirai: Enhanced PSN to arrive in Spring 2010

Publish date:

Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai has revealed a new and enhanced version of PlayStation Network should be launched by next spring.

The upgraded service will build on the established PSN system but will be more open and broader in scale, Fortune reports. Hirai suggested the upgraded service will integrate with other Sony devices, including phones, cameras and televisions.

It's now a matter of what all the services need to look like for each device, and coming out with a rollout plan,” he said. It's like city planning here, and we can start small. We don't need to build New York City overnight.”

The goal is to make it easier for consumers to manage media, transfer images from a camera to TV, and display, edit, share and store videos. It was also hinted that Sony's loyal customers will be rewarded with discounts and premium services.
