Thursday, 12th January 2012 19:53 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

“What I find at SCE is that we’ve lots of passionate and committed people. But there’s definitely an opportunity to up the pace of our competitiveness. We still have a bit of a hangover – at least in the UK company – from the days of being market dominant [with PS2]. I don’t think we are as sharp as we can be. There’s room for improvement there. So it’s not change everything, but it is turn up the dial, and learn to compete.” – SCE UK’s new boss Fergal Gara to MCV.

    Back in the day when it was about games and trying to get as much games on to your system as possible, now it’s all tech focused and hardware focused. I love my PS3, but it could have been so much better.

    I’m pretty impressed by the soulsearching that seems to be going on with the Sony leadership, but I don’t get why it took them so long to ask themselves those questions.

    It’s not about being the hardware or the games company in my opinion, it’s about being the “gamer” company. Hardware might appeal to some people, and games are a great way of endearing people to you, but you really need an underlying set of values, that lets people genuinely identify with the product.

    Some companies get that, and others just kinda keep going back and forth between failed concepts.

    I congratulate his attitude, but it really shouldn’t just be the UK arm of SCE doing the soulsearching, it should be the whole of Sony Corporation.
