On April 1, Sony Computer Entertainment merged with Sony Network Entertainment, combining their strengths to create the brand new Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Layden says the new merger will allow Sony Interactive Entertainment to truly focus on advancing the PlayStation brand. The new company hopes to do this by responding to gamers' needs and improving services like PlayStation Now and PlayStation Vue. Above all, Layden is determined to truly make an impact on the video game industry and "drive consistent and constant innovation," mentioning the PlayStation VR as an example.
Looking ahead to Sony's upcoming releases, Layden reported that he would be assuming extra roles in supporting the company's first party games, including Uncharted 4, The Last Guardian, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

He hopes to carry this experience into his work as president of Sony Interactive Entertainment. "The future is surely bright," he wrote. If Layden can deliver on his goals, the future for PlayStation could be very bright indeed.
