For the longest time, Sony's organizational structure on video games didn't make sense. Sony Computer Entertainment runs the worldwide PlayStation business. But Sony Online Entertainment - the makers of massively multiplayer online games such as EverQuest for the PC - always reported to a different group.
But games are games. And Sony has decided that SOE should now report to Kaz Hirai, the CEO of the PlayStation group. Until now, the online games division headed by John Smedley has reported to Sony Pictures Entertainment. That's the movie division. I'm not sure what casting spells in EverQuest had to do with Spider-Man 3 movies. But that's the way it was.
