Here’s a relevant excerpt from the article.
8:06PM “We fully support Bert and his team at Sony Ericsson.”
8:05PM He’s also looking to fully expand PSN to phones; video distribution was the example given, but long term, there’s no reason to think we couldn’t see some cross-platform multiplayer gaming action.
8:05PM “We are exploring consistent user interfaces against Sony and Sony Ericsson products.” Makes sense… almost too much sense.
8:04PM Describing the PlayStation Network’s 40 million-plus members: “PSN is a not-so-secret weapon.”
8:03PM He’s predicting the obsolescence of wallets, keys, and driver’s licenses as phones take over on every level. It’s a brave new world.
My first reaction to this is that it’ll mean more work for me and no particular benefit, since I don’t own an Ericsson phone. Still, it seems we’re in for an interesting future, when all of our devices will be networked.
