Sony and Honda partner to be able to introduce a PlayStation 5 in the car and thus be able to compete with Tesla
Some time ago we were able to see how Tesla was introducing video games in its cars, taking advantage of having a large screen on the dashboard. We had only seen this before in specially prepared models, so no manufacturer had dared to incorporate this technology in the industry. Over time, the improvement in the software Y hardware They have allowed the introduction of more modern and higher quality games. Is it possible to enjoy a format similar or identical to that of PlayStation?
Honda, one of the manufacturers that is betting the most on electric cars, intends to compete with Tesla’s business model. For this reason, it could integrate the PlayStation into future automobiles in the hands of the company Sony Honda Mobility. This partnership is a collaboration between both brands, which has been created to obtain synergies. It is a strategy whose main objective is to be a benchmark in sustainable mobility, at the same time it will allow users to enjoy the best entertainment.
The arrival of level 3 of autonomy in driving could sometimes require the role of the driver, so the introduction of this technology would still not make much sense. Now, what to say in case of levels 4 or 5? At this point, we will attend a deep review of the interiors of the cars. Here is the moment in which this association would play a fundamental role.

This new movement adds to the already previously viewed by Google, Apple, or Microsoft, among others. A clear rapprochement is being observed between car manufacturers and the most famous technology companies in the Nasdaq index. Even Dyson was flirting with the production of his own electric car! In this particular case, the provision of electrical mechanics is a clear advantage offered by the electric car compared to conventional alternatives. It is true that playing the game console will reduce the autonomy of the vehicle, but, in exchange, there will be a differential service.
