In 2003, Matsuura together with NanaOn-Sha was responsible for the production of the audio portion of Sony's third generation robotic dog toy, AIBO (model ERS-7). This included both music and sound effects.


Matsuura founded the Tokyo-based production company, NanaOn-Sha, and began development of video games. The first major project would be a unique game fusing hip-hop rhythms the visual talents of American animator, Rodney Greenblat. Released in December 1996 in Japan, PaRappa the Rapper is regarded as one of the first modern rhythm games. Matsuura's talent for combining music and video game play would again be demonstrated with his 1999 release of the generative music game Vib-Ribbon, and would cement his position as one of the founders of the music game genre.

In 1993 Matsuura became the first Japanese musician to release a CD-ROM, The Seven Colors, for which he was awarded the "Multimedia Grand Prix". In June 1996, after having produced 10 albums with Psy-S (and four "best of" albums), Matsura quit the band, and focused his attention on his multimedia projects.


In the late 80s, Psy-S enjoyed fair degree of popularity in Japan thanks to a number of hits. Certain of their songs have been used in such anime shows as City Hunter, and in films. In 1987, Masaya Matsuura oversaw musical composition for the anime adaptation of To-Y, Atsushi Kamijo's manga.


In April 1983, shortly after his graduation from Ritsumeikan University, Matsuura met singer Chaka (Mami Yasunori) and founded Psy-S. The band's first album, Different View, was released in 1985. The group's musical style is a mixture of experimental synthesizer, electric guitar, and vocals. Matsuura is the band's composer and arranger, and he performs using a Fairlight CMI synthesizer. He has also mastered the keyboard, guitar, and bass and he occasionally performs these instruments in stage as well.
