Overview edit · view history

Sony Interactive Entertainment Inc. (SIE Inc.) is the publisher and developer of first-party titles for all PlayStation platforms in Japan as well as the division responsible for design and development of PlayStation hardware. SIE Inc. is based in Tokyo, Japan.

It is a wholly owned division of Sony Interactive Entertainment LLC, which was created from a merger of the former Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. and Sony Network Entertainment. It is based in San Mateo, CA.

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. began in 1994 when Nintendo tore up the agreement for Sony to supply Nintendo with a disc system add-on for their Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Once Hiroshi Yamauchi had torn up that agreement, Ken Kutaragi decided that with all the research that has been done, they could make their own console system. At that time, the Sony PlayStation was born.
