Sony unveils new gear, makes apology Video Transcript
-This isn't the first time that I've come to this stage in an E3 press conference with an elephant in the room. -Jack Tretton, the CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, wasted no time addressing the recent security breach of the Sony PlayStation Network at this year's E3 in Los Angeles. -And I wanna apologize both personally and on behalf of the company for any anxiety that we've caused you. -Tretton says the breach, which compromised information about the 77 million users of the PlayStation Network resulting in 3 weeks of interrupted service in the US, could have happened to any company. -Hacking right now is becoming a major, major problem across all facets, so I think we're confident that we're much more secure than we were before but there are very few guarantees in life. -But, there was some good news announced. New games and a new handheld device, the PS Vita. -It's like everything that there was in the PlayStation Portable, and now it's got a touchscreen, so it feels more like an iPod Touch or an iPhone, and it's got much better graphics like a PlayStation 3. -And, Sony has made a play for more advanced 3D technology. -This is PlayStation's brand new 24-inch 3D display. It allows 2 players to each wear 3D glasses and see different images, completely eliminating the need for a split screen. -Sony plans to offer the 3D display as a bundle with glasses, a 3D game, and HDMI cable, and with a price of $500, it will make it one of the least expensive ways to view HD and 3D movies at home.
