During big Kaz’s keynote at TGS 09, the Sony bossman told attendees that networking is very important for users, as in it creates experiences they can share with others via network communities, like SingStar and LittleBigPlanet.

“These networked communities are new experiences,” said Hirai. “This has made a new business model as well and this will help the game industry expand. The networked communities, that is Games are really the basis, the core, and can be combined with networks to increase the fun.”

“The question is what do we need to develop? We have to open our eyes and be sensitive to what users want.”
