Sony and Honda recently entered into a partnership for the development of electric vehicles. Among the various innovations that both will certainly be developing, the integration of PlayStation 5 could be one of the most important.
The possibility is raised Izumi Kawanishi, responsible for Sony Honda Mobility, in an interview with the Financial Times. The executive says that the inclusion of a PS5 in one of his cars seeks to respond to Tesla’s advances in the automotive sector.
PlayStation 5 in a Honda car is a response to Tesla’s dominance
Tesla was the main driver of the inclusion of new technologies in the automotive sector. Not only for the development of autonomous driving technologies, but also for the possibility of playing games like The Witcher 3 or Cyberpunk 2077 in their cars.
The answer given by Honda and Sony will come with the development of a new car that aims to put content first. According to what is mentioned, this vehicle will run around music, movies and PlayStation 5.
Izumi Kawanishi does not hide the motivation for this option and openly states that the intention is to attack the American construction company Tesla. “This is our fight against Tesla. The pull advantage.”
The head of Sony Honda Mobility is confident that it will be possible to include a PlayStation 5 in one of his future cars. But for the experience to be complete, there is much more to develop.
For the inclusion of a PlayStation 5 in a Honda car to reach fullness, it will be necessary to develop a car with autonomous capabilities. The president of Sony Honda Mobility Corp declares this functionality mandatory.
“To take advantage of the space in the car, it has to be a space where you don’t have to drive. The solution for that is autonomous driving.”
The inclusion of a console inside a car promises to be a milestone for the automotive industry. However, this topic will certainly generate discussion with regard to road safety and the harm caused by the presence of a distraction vector as strong as a PlayStation 5.
Until that happens, there is still much to develop and much to discuss. Honda says it wants to put its first vehicle on the American market in 2025 and until then we will see if this ambition will be fulfilled or not.
