In an exclusive interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Phil Harrison, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, has discussed the firm's future plans for the PlayStation family and its delight with this year's successes.

One of the key players in Sony's plans for the videogames market, Harrison is uniquely placed to comment on the status of the PlayStation 2, the PlayStation Portable and the progress towards the launch of PlayStation 3.
