Last month, an update to the PS3 firmware allowed the PSP Remote Play function to reach across the boundless expanse that we call "the internet" -- but the PS3's connective capabilities aren't going to stop there, according to a recent statement from Sir Howard Stringer, Sony's CEO and resident knight. During a speech
in Tokyo, Sir Stringer announced the company's plans to enable connections from the system to a number of electronic devices, including certain mobile phones, as part of their up-and-coming three year plan.
Stringer then announced his company's intention to expand the PlayStation Network service over the next fiscal year, putting them "in the direct line of fire with Apple and Microsoft," perhaps heralding a restructuring of their online gaming service, or the addition of some form of an online music market through the PSN service (ala iTunes). Or maybe, he literally meant "in the direct line of fire," meaning the three mega-corporations will establish dominance in a three-way, Old West style gunfight. We heard Steve Jobs puts an ace
in his deck every time he kills a man.
