Sony, the founder of PlayStation, comments that it is well-structured to play its leading role in a meta-version, a virtual reality submerged in a conglomeration of worlds that, in the eyes of analysts, has changed the way industries operate.

“The PlayStation has played a major role in the social revolution of gaming, promoting metaversion as a new means of entertainment. This was announced by Epic CEO Tim Sweeney on Twitter.
Sony has also taken steps to expand its focus beyond single-player titles, announcing in January a deal to buy Bungie, the creator of the multiplayer online shooter Destiny.
Sony is already licensing content on other platforms, benefiting from the cost of using its content for streaming, such as Seinfeld, a well-known American comedy. On the other hand, even though it owns Crunchyroll’s streaming service, the company has not gone too far in operating video platforms against its competitors, including Disney.
In addition to the meta version, Yoshida also defended Sony’s claim to mobility by developing an electric vehicle with Honda.
