Sony is a Japanese electronics and media distribution company. Founded in 1946, Sony has since become one of the largest conglomerates in the world. Among other things, the own Sony Computer Entertainment, which publishes game titles and creates the consoles we all* know and love. They first entered the video game market in 1994 with the creation of the Sony PlayStation, which would go on to change video game history by taking the #1 position in the fifth-generation consoles.

They are also the creator of different media formats, such as Blu-Ray Discs and UMDs, which they have been using in their video game consoles and handhelds.
