Kaz Hirai wants PlayStation to be the number one in the industry

Newly appointed Sony boss Kaz Hirai is pretty clear about what he wants to do with PlayStation – take it to the number one spot in the industry.

He said that Sony can improve in the games business, Sony’s digital imaging business and its mobile segment. He feels these three areas the main ones the company can improve in.

Hirai was speaking as part of Sony’s Q3 financial conference call yesterday morning.

Although he’s been named the new CEO of Sony, Hirai will only take over from Stringer on April 1, Stringer will then take up the position of chairman of the board at the company in June.
