There is no doubt that 2016 is going to be the best and yet the most important year for Sony Corp (ADR) (NYSE:SNE). The PSN was completely down in January 4 and, therefore, Sony is making good on its promise to deliver free day for subscribers. Last year was a light year for the company for it was very exclusive and that should tell how successful Sony’s Xbox machine is. Nevertheless, the company still has a lot to do since PlayStation seems to be becoming the center of the company’s overall business. This year will undoubtedly show what the company’s strongest brand is made of. Who knows, 2016 might be the year to bring us the “Uncharted 4” that we have long awaited and from a game perspective, PS4 is already one of the biggest releases this year.
There is a high probability that PlayStation VRwill become a defining platform for PS4 if it is done the right way. . It is true that the install base dominance for PS4 is big enough such that it will allow even third-party games. VR is on the verge of remarking the world for it had great potential to do so for it is not only new, weird, but also very different from the consumer tech that is in the market at the moment. The vibes and predictions of a world-defining VR are already in the air which is why Sony is in a very good position to take advantage of this wave of excitement.
As a matter of facts,PlayStation VR is going to be a game changer, but what we do not know yet is how expensive it will be. Already, there are too many PS4s in the world but the fact that PlayStation VR has enough hardware chops will give it advantage over the Samsung Gear. That simply means that PlayStation VR is on the verge of becoming Sony’s first, large scale successful expedition which will expand the company’s most fruitful product into a new market.
Evidently, Sony wants to remain a company that builds and leverages PlayStation as one of its most vital brands. For that reason, its potential into VR will undoubtedly be a huge marker. The thought of how PS$ is starting 2016 in a strong position also makes it easy to imagine how this year could be the year Sony establishes itself as one of the biggest player in the burgeoning field of VR. The company will be setting itself up for the coming years which will be more than enjoyable to watch.
