CNET was among a group of select journalists who sat down with Sony President and CEO Kazuo Hirai at CES 2014.
Hirai wasn't willing to say for sure whether he thinks Nvidia's Shield gaming device will be successful.
Sony says it will focus on three "pillars" -- digital imaging, gaming, and mobile. Oh, and Hirai will also head up the entire home entertainment operation, including the TV biz.
Sony's troubling fiscal third-quarter performance comes just a day after the company announced it is replacing its CEO Howard Stringer with Kazuo Hirai on April 1.
Kazuo Hirai, now head of the company's videogame group, will be Sony's next president, Nikkei reports. Howard Stringer remains chairman and CEO.

Kazuo Hirai says that, for now, his company will attempt to appeal to customers in Japan and Europe rather than in the US and China.
