Sony's goal isn't just to stay ahead of the game; the company also wants to increase its market share.
Yesterday, during the 97th General Shareholder Meeting in Tokyo, Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai briefly spoke about the current situation of the PlayStation 4, and the plan for the future (as cited by DualShockers ).
Hirai said the PS4 launch was very successful and the goal is to hold their freshly acquired #1 position. However, he also wants to find a way to "further extend the market penetration for the future." He added that the PlayStation Network's services have been growing and creating a form of stable revenue, which isn't all that surprising. Hirai did remind everyone that 1994 marks the 20th anniversary of the brand and that between hardware, software and network services, PS4 will likely become their most profitable platform yet.
As Sony continues to restructure and recover, it seems like PlayStation could continue to be a guiding light in times of woe. …too much poetry for plain ol' corporate news?
