The Cult Of Kaz Hirai - Why have we fallen in love with one of gaming's most inflammatory execs?

It was almost as though the PlayStation Meeting video invite, which Sony published online on Jan 31, had some kind of subliminal message encoded within it. It was as though, somewhere between the video's shapes and sounds, a message lied, feeding into our subconscious minds the thought that Kaz Hirai will save us all. (Culture, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PS4, PSP, Sony)

Oh, no worries. I'm pretty sure every gamer who's played Uncharted already turned gay for Drake

@Blacktric
If Kaz comes onstage later today, holding EITHER a cake or Final Fantasy vs XIII, tell Jack Tretton I found someone else

The power of Kaz seems to have overpowered the sheer B.S. of this article and it's vitriol against Sony as a whole. Of particular note was "Following the PSN hack scandal in which around 77 million PlayStation customers' personal details were stolen..."

For starters, no one's information was stolen. That's been proven time and again. Two, at the time of the hack there were not 77 million users. This article is riddled with a lack of proper research and actually smacks of being written by someone who either hates Kaz, hates Sony/PS3, or all of the above. It's ridiculous.

Thank goodness most people aren't giving a damn about what the person wrote and instead have simply chosen to hijack the page with more hilarious Kaz pictures.

First of all, love does not exist, its simply a state of mind and therefore, only trolls believe to be in love. Come on look at this page its full of trolls.

oh, sway_z, you poor, young thing, you....everyone know the King of PS is Krazy Ken Kutaragi.....He is king & grandfather, godfather & basically is playstation.
He designed the PS1 (120 million+ seller), PS2 (140 million+ seller & still going), & PS3 (77 million+ seller & still going).

I care not for all the hate Krazy Ken copped, he may have been mad, but he was a freaking mad genius, that designed 3 of the best consoles of all time, & regardless of PS3's continued hate (to a lesser degree now), they have gotten better with each machine, & PS3 is the pinnacle & best system yet, with the highest no. of high quality games, & lowest number of absolute drizzle, as opposed to PS1 & PS2 that had far more shovelware & such.

I would have had some voice of concerns about PS's future, with Ken not being at the helm of PS3 design.....but I own a Vita, & if those guys have anything to do with the development of PS4, then I think I need not worry, as if Vita is any measure, PS4 should be a powerhouse, with enough great, innovative features to impress this old dog, & it will easily suck the money from my wallet come Australian launch day.

When Kaz reveals the PS4, if he mentions a launch date in North America, before Europe, I am gonna kick a voodoo doll of him, to death.
I'm sick of these Japs treating Europeans & Australians & all other PAL territories, like 2nd rate citizens of the world, when Europe is a bigger country & population, that in general support Sony products, AND ESPECIALLY PS Sony products, more than Americans do.....and this will always continue, as MS is a U.S. based company, & patriotism is a huge factor for Americans.

You're right, they should treat their most loyal territory the best.
DigitalSmoke  +   861d ago
Lol nobody has fallen in love with anybody, whatssup with these retarded articles about Kaz lately, he's a guy who works with Sony, who has nothing to do with the fun i have with the Playstation 3.
GreenRanger  +   861d ago
What if Sony DON'T show the PS4 tonight?
It wouldn't matter because everything else they would show would be awesome.
ApolloTheBoss  +   861d ago
At last it's almost time. Bring forth the new age, Sony!!

The Church of Kaz would make an excellent cult. I wouldn't mind preaching to people about our glorious leader Kaz if the PS4 delivers on epic proportions tonight, which I'm sure it will.
