I'm sure this will be a news item on the main page before long but thought I'd start a thread to see what people make of this news:

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/355487/kaz-hirai-steps-away-from-playstation-business/

http://www.scei.co.jp/corporate/release/120625_e.html

Sony Computer Entertainment chairman Kaz Hirai has stepped down to concentrate on his role as the Sony group CEO where he'll try and sort out their struggling TV division.

Clearly he leaves SCE in relativelly rude health, but at a really interesting time given, as we all know/expect, the next gaming generation is in the process of being formed behind the scenes as we speak.

Andrew House is now the man in charge of 'Playstation,' a move that has been on the cards since last year, but I wouldn't envy him right now, there'll be a lot of pressure on his shoulders to make sure Sony doesn't lose as much ground as it did at the start of the current generation. I am however hopeful that SCEE stops getting such a raw deal in terms of releases and promotions now we have a Brit in charge!

Thoughts anyone?

Ha, it was pretty noticeable that Tretton handed over to House in what, with hindsight, looks like a kind-of 'this thing is all down to the Limey, don't look at me if it shits out!' manner.

Interesting times to come in the next year or two thatcs for sure, one way or the other!

Hello, thanks for sharing this information with us. Actually, I came here to read reviews of https://do-my-assignment.com/do-my-essay-australia website. Because I want to take help from that website regarding my essay and someone told me that over here I will find reviews of that website but I can't find it anywhere.
