  Sony Computer Entertainment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) is a subsidiary of Sony Corporation that was established on November 16, 1993 in Tokyo, Japan.
Sony's first foray into the video game market, the PlayStation (formerly PSX, currently called PS one), was initially set to be an add-on for Nintendo's Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Famicom video game consoles as an answer to Sega's Sega CD.
Sony's sixth generation console, the PlayStation 2 or PS2 was released in Japan on March 4, 2000 and later in North America on October 26, 2000.

 Sony - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The name "Sony" was chosen for the brand as a mix of the Latin word sonus, which is the root of sonic and sound, the English word "sunny", and from the word Sonny-boys which is Japanese slang for "whiz kids".
Sony also makes heavy use of its Memory Stick flash memory cards for digital cameras and other Sony portable devices; however, few other manufacturers are also making use of this technology.
Sony also admitted in late 2005 to hiring graffiti artists to spraypaint advertisements for their Playstation Portable game system in seven major US cities including New York, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and San Francisco, California.

 SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT v. CONNECTIX CORP., 203 F.3d 596 (9th Cir. 2000) (LOISLAW)
Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc., which brought this copyright infringement action, produces and markets the Sony PlayStation console, a small computer with hand controls that connects to a television console and plays games that are inserted into the PlayStation on compact discs (CDs).
But if Connectix engineers had left their computers turned on throughout the period during which they were observing the Sony BIOS in an emulated environment, they would have made far fewer intermediate copies of the Sony BIOS (perhaps as few as one per computer).
Sony relies on these RAM copies for its contention, which we reject, that there is no significant difference between the facts of this case and our decisions in Triad Systems Corp. v.

 The Engadget Interview: Peter Dille, Sony Computer Entertainment's SVP of Marketing - Engadget
Last week, between extended PS3 sessions, we got a chance to sit down with Sony Computer Entertainment America's Senior Vice President of Marketing, Peter Dille, who chatted candidly with us about Sony's ambitions (and failures) in the market, design decisions made with the console, and where the PlayStation platform is going both handheld and console.
But, I think from Sony's point of view, we have a design path that would enhance the experience for the gamers, and we're looking to move forward and not continue down the path that we did down before.
Methinks Sony should at least try to stick to technical innovation and make sure their vice presidents have, you know, a little in the way of technical knowledge if they're going to be interviewed by the likes of Engadget.

 Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc., et al. v. Connectix Corporation
In this case we are called upon once again to apply the principles of copyright law to computers and their software, to determine what must be protected as expression and what must be made accessible to the public as function.
Sony subsequently moved for a preliminary injunction on the grounds of copyright and trademark infringement.
Consequently, if Connectix was to gain access to the functional elements of the Sony BIOS it had to be through a form of reverse engineering that required copying the Sony BIOS onto a computer.6 Sony does not dispute this proposition.

 Sony sets PlayStation 3 price at $499 and $599 - May. 9, 2006
Although Sony did not note these changes in its pre-E3 press conference, printed material handed out by the company indicate that in addition to having a smaller hard drive, the $499 PS3 will not be able to read data from Sony memory sticks, SD or compact flash cards (a feature Sony touted Monday evening).
Sony said many of the features which were removed from the less expensive version could be found on many home computers and it was relying on the assumption that buyers would be able to use those through their home networks.
Sony was the first of the three console manufacturers to speak before the beginning of the Electronic Entertainment Expo, the annual trade show of the computer gaming industry.

Hardware shortages may have kept Nintendo's system from scoring an overwhelming victory in its launch period, but there were still plenty of copies of games available for both systems in that similar time period.

 Sony executive hints at PSP launch delay // GamesIndustry.biz
The first suggestion that Sony may be forced to delay the launch of PSP has come from Sony Computer Entertainment network systems boss Izumi Kawanishi, who told a Japanese publication that the schedule depends on game publishers.
This is the first time that anyone within Sony has voiced any doubt over the launch schedule for the unit, although several analysts and media commentators have expressed concern over the launch timetable, especially in light of the system's public debut at the Tokyo Game Show last month.
Much of the software shown there appeared to be very incomplete, with some analysts pegging most the titles on display at around 60 to 75 per cent completion - suggesting that they may not be ready until next year, thus missing the planned Q4 2004 launch of the device.

 Sony Buys All Of Sony Computer Entertainment 1UP - Find Articles
In an interesting bit of financial fiddling, Sony Corporation has purchased the last remaining shares of subsidiary Sony Computer Entertainment outside its control.
SCE, the company responsible for PlayStation hardware manufacturing and software publishing, is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony proper.
With Kutaragi rising higher into Sony's hierarchy and overseeing a larger portion of the company's future efforts (his responsibilities now cover not only gaming, but also semiconductor development and Sony's broadband networking initiatives), today's move suggests that he will have less control over SCE in the future.
