Ondanks dat het PlayStation Network nog steeds niet online is en Sony hier druk mee bezig is, heeft Sony ook andere dingen aan het hoofd. De wereld draait niet alleen om de PlayStation en ook alle andere producten van Sony moeten verkoopcijfers weten te halen om zo een deel van de schade proberen af te lossen.

Vandaag is op internet dan ook een openstaande vacature bij Sony gevonden, die lonkt naar een medewerker voor de webbrowser op de PS3. Een poosje geleden werden we geconfronteerd met het idee dat Google Chrome naar de PS3 zou komen. Deze nieuwe informatie kan natuurlijk leiden tot Google Chrome en voor een complete vacature kan je altijd even hieronder kijken. Zodra we hier meer over weten, laten we het natuurlijk gelijk aan jullie weten.
