Sony Interactive Entertainment

Sony Interactive Entertainment is a digital-entertainment company and multinational subsidiary of the Japanese corporate giant Sony. It oversees the research and development, hardware, and software of the PlayStation gaming console, while its umbrella of video-game developers—SIE Worldwide Studios—produces PlayStation-exclusive titles. In 2018, Sony and frequent collaborator Insomniac Games were praised for the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man, which sold 3.3 million copies within its first three days—the fastest ever for a PlayStation title—and included meme-nuggets like Camera Mode and costumes from the hit animated film Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse. To keep hungry players sated, Sony has followed up with immersive downloadable content, including a heist adventure with Spidey’s sometimes-nemesis/sometimes-sweetheart, Black Cat.
