In 1994, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) was founded as the North America division of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. Taking approximately four years to develop, the PlayStation® game console was introduced in the United States in 1995. The launch of the PlayStation® brand was a sensation. In the very first weekend, more than 100,000 units were sold. In the first six months, over a million were sold. Since then SCEA has successfully launched a multitude of entertainment products that have not only pushed the boundaries of play, but it has redefined the entertainment lifestyle.
We make advanced hardware that enables the most talented developers to produce vanguard titles and set new standards in interactive entertainment. Our goal is to make a family of products that completely changes the definition of home entertainment. It doesn’t matter if you’re a hard-core gamer whose thumb calluses that can deflect machine gun fire or if you just love Blu-ray movies, PlayStation® entertainment products have something for you.
