No explanations needed, you're installed as surprise new owner of BLANK company. You can affect changes throughout the company from you-on-down, hirings, firings, overhauls, etc. So... how would you run things given complete control?

Let's hear you guys/gals, from any time period of gaming history. Concept mock-up images welcome too.

For starters:

SONY PORTABILITY:
PSP/PSVita, PS App/PS Remote Play...


I HATE being chained to my TV in the living room. Especially at night if I'm tired, but wanting to play more. It's a whole "thing", and I'm always trying different things-out as so-called solutions. Currently, I have a G-Story TV lid attached to my PS5, so the console itself becomes somewhat ''portable''. I Remote Play play on living room TV and when tired I go play upstairs in bed on the TV screen lid. Or if I'm based somewhere else around the house or have to leave my own house, the console itself is a self-contained ''portable'', no TV needed. It "works-out"... but isn't an elegant solution for sure...



Granted, we have PS Remote Play app on laptops, and phones, but who really wants to carry a PS controller and laptop around; or a PS controller and a clip-on-attachment alongside their smartphone? It is my eternal frustration that MS seems to have capitalized on Sony's initial vision and half-steps. Tortoise and the Hare? Sony even scaled-back PSNow interation when they redid the PStore for post PS3 era, so no longer could PSNow be accessed from a broader list of devices such as Tablets and TVs etc. Now, with Xbox putting an XCloud/GP app on TV's, they have further solved the issue of not needing XB hardware, any TV screen becomes an XC/GP station, you don't even need a laptop to run Remote Play software on.
  • There's still a market for a dedicated handheld device, I think, so long as it's form factor is comfortable, stylish, and has all the needed buttons.

  • Allow it to work over mobile data/not just the same wifi network as console. Use a standard, non overpriced storage medium. Basically, just don't kneecap the thing right before the race begins.

  • Like Vita, and new PS App, allow it to voice chat with players.

  • L2/R2 and LS/RS pressable buttons included. This allows for 1:1 input for remote playing PS4/PS5 games.

  • WILD idea: Though I wouldn't still be pushing PS4/cross-gen game development myself as this point in time as a general matter of course for newly developed titles... if I was forced to do it or took over operations today when SONY have already committed to it; I'd find a way to make a PORTABLE PS4.

    "PSP... PSP GO... PSVita... The 4th PSP... is a Portable PS4!"


  • Compliment the new Portable hardware by also having TV Apps for PS App and PS Remote Play apps from mobile devices. Oh... and something like this...

You still got the Sony TV we talked about years ago, or did you go with something else ultimately? I can't remember but we were debating size you should get.
