Info on Sony Corp. R&D funding

Where can I find information on Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. (SCEA) and its market analysis, and their competition?
What about this division's R&D commitment?

I've been searching for a few days but I don't know what to look for.

Any links will be appreciated.

Thanks

You best bet may be to check out Sony's corporate site - http://www.sony.net

I haven't taken a good look at it, but I see there is an About Us section, and a Contact Us section.  I would think that sending an email through Contact Us would work best.

here are two more of their competitors:
Harman Intl (HAR)
THOMSONADS (TMS)

this link has their earnings releases and earnings releases usually contain expenses such as research and development. They are pdf files and I do not have Adobe Acrobat so maybe you can download them and look around.

I searched for Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc and I keep getting referred to Sony Global. I am sure their investor relations dept can give you the data you need also if you wish to call or write them.
