PlayStation

Sony has announced today that they will be merging both the Sony Computer Entertainment (PlayStation hardware and software) and Sony Network Entertainment (PlayStation Network Services) into one division, called Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC.

What is interesting about this merge is that the new division will be headquartered in the United States, not Japan. However global business operations will be established in Tokyo and London.

The president and global CEO of SIE will be Andrew House. Below is a structure of how the business will run.

Sony discontinues Facebook support on PS3 and PS Vita systems

PS3 and PS Vita

Sony has discontinued Facebook support by releasing updates for both PS3 and PS Vita. The versions are 4.78 and 3.57 respectively.

This is all what we know according to Sony. But we guess they did this due to changes in the Facebook API, however it’s surprising for it to be discontinued for the Vita, but as we all know Sony isn’t treating the Vita very well.

Have any of you guys used the Facebook feature? Let us know.
