Sony Corp. has been promoting the PlayStation 3 video game console as an ultimate home entertainment center with Blu-ray disc player inside. But Kazuo Hirai, who is chief executive of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. believes that the new-gen PlayStation is all about games and only then about other types of entertainment.

“The thing that I did, when I took over last year was to boast the appeal of games themselves... The main premise of the PS3 is video games. That's the absolutely most important thing that we cannot lose sight of,” said chief executive of SCEI in a new interview with Japanese Nikkei Net Interactive, reports Kotaku web-site.

Sony PlayStation 3, unlike Microsoft Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii, can playback movies on Blu-ray disc media that is supported by all the major Hollywood studios these days. Many of Sony Corp.’s execs have praised the PS3 as a Blu-ray player, not a video game console.

Sony PlayStation 3 console is based on the Cell processor developed by IBM, Sony and Toshiba, the RSX graphics chip by Nvidia Corp., wireless network and Bluetooth connectivity and is equipped with Blu-ray optical disk drive. There are several versions of the consoles available around the world with different hard disk drives and variable compatibility with PlayStation 1/2 games.
