President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America Shawn Layden has announced the formation of a new company called Sony Interactive Entertainment.

It combines the power of both Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment and is headquartered out of the United States in San Mateo, California.

"The formation of SIE will create an even stronger PlayStation," said Layden. "That means an even bigger emphasis on developing pioneering platforms like PS4 and PlayStation VR, world-class games from our World Wide Studios development teams, and innovative network services such as PlayStation Vue.

"It also means a renewed commitment to making PlayStation the best place to play.

"Thank you for joining us on this important step in PlayStation history. And as always, we are deeply grateful for your continued support and feedback. We’re excited to undertake this next step in PlayStation history with you!"
