Sony's New CEO To Look Beyond Hardware 178

angry tapir writes "Sony's new CEO says the company needs to move on from its hardware roots. From its inception, the company has defined itself through its gadget lines — Walkman, Vaio, Cyber-shot, PlayStation — but incoming CEO Kazuo Hirai, who will officially lead the company from April, says Sony must now focus more on the software and platforms they access.

Sony is forecasting nearly US$3 billion in losses for the fiscal year through March."
