Report: Sony Could Roll Out "Expanded Network" Next Spring

Sony has been talking about an "expanded Network" for quite some time, and now it seems that the magic moment may arrive some time next year.

We're talking about a far-reaching, more widespread service that would incorporate electronics outside of the PS3 and PSP; instruments like Sony TVs, cell phones, and other gadgets and accessories. And now, according to what PlayStation head man Kaz Hirai said in a recent Fortune report, the bigger and better Network could make its presence felt as early as Spring 2010. Apparently, as CEO Howard Stringer said, it will allow Sony devices "to talk to each other efficiently," and ultimately, it will be a more streamlined process when handling the various equipment and performing certain tasks (like editing video or sharing and storing content, for instance). The report also goes on to say that Sony may make some interesting acquisitions that will help to "accelerate the effort," and that it won't all happen overnight: this new and expanded Network will have to roll out over time, which sounds logical to us. As we've been saying over the past week or so, the PSN has made tremendous strides over the past few years and if Sony can successfully make this next leap, it would be absolutely enormous.

We'll keep an eye on what transpires in the near future, and if this report is accurate, we could all be looking at a very different Network this time next year...
