Sony Interactive Entertainment (formerly Sony Computer Entertainment) is a video game company founded by Sony in 1993. Its best known product is the PlayStation line of video game consoles, with which it is considered one of the top powerhouses in the business. It is currently the second largest video game company by market revenue in the world.

It went through several changes and renames over the years, with its recent rename being 2016. Its global headquarters was formerly in Tokyo, but since the 2016 restructuring it has been centered in San Mateo, California (the company as a whole still ultimately reports to Tokyo, as Sony's headquarters is in there).

The company's most notable division is PlayStation Studios (formerly SCE Worldwide Studios and SIE Worldwide Studios), an umbrella company watching over Sony's various development studios.
