CNET News Video: Sony unveils new gear, makes apology

1:40 /

The Electronic Entertainment Expo--or E3--is the Super Bowl for the world of video games. But for PlayStation maker Sony, it was the main stage to discuss its recent security breach that compromised 77 million users' personal information. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports from Los Angeles.

-This isn't the first time that I've come to this stage in an E3 press conference with an elephant in the room. -Jack Tretton, the CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, wasted no time addressing the recent security breach of the Sony PlayStation Network at this year's E3 in Los Angeles. -And I wanna apologize both personally and on behalf of the company for any anxiety that we've caused you. -Tretton says the breach, which compromised information about the 77 million users of the PlayStation Network resulting in 3 weeks of interrupted service in the US, could have happened to any company. -Hacking right now is becoming a major, major problem across all facets, so I think we're confident that we're much more secure than we were before but there are very few guarantees in life. -But, there was some good news announced. New games and a new handheld device, the PS Vita. -It's like everything that there was in the PlayStation Portable, and now it's got a touchscreen, so it feels more like an iPod Touch or an iPhone, and it's got much better graphics like a PlayStation 3. -And, Sony has made a play for more advanced 3D technology. -This is PlayStation's brand new 24-inch 3D display. It allows 2 players to each wear 3D glasses and see different images, completely eliminating the need for a split screen. -Sony plans to offer the 3D display as a bundle with glasses, a 3D game, and HDMI cable, and with a price of $500, it will make it one of the least expensive ways to view HD and 3D movies at home. In Los Angeles, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
