We’ve talked about the current states of Nintendo (Episode 77) & Microsoft (Episode 79)… but what about the current video game console market leader, Sony? We take a look at how things got started over 25 years ago, and we dig into the current perceptions of the tech giant. Daniel Freitas joins us again to talk about the state of Sony – their history and what we expect to see from them in the future.
