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.

    this link shows 3 of their main competitors: Matsushita Electric Industrial Co Ltd,
    Koninklijke Philips Electronics NV, and Sanyo Electric Co Ltd.
    http://finance.yahoo.com/q/co?s=SNE

    this link has a list of research reports if, by market analysis you meant the stock market. At the bottom there is a link to see older research reports dated before Nov. 1
    http://finance.yahoo.com/q/rr?s=SNE

    this link has their research and development expenses at the bottom and alot of other financial data.

    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.

    this link has their 2004 annual report. I am postive if you have Adobe and download it it will have all the research and development info you seek for each division.

    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.
