Hiroshi Kawano is retiring from Sony, it has been announced. Kawano was the president of both Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Sony Computer Entertainment Asia.
That too bad. Good luck with whatever you do next Mr Kawano.
he has to take responsibility for the troubles of PS4 in Japan.
other than handhelds, console sales have been down in sales for a long time in Japan. a boost here and there but nothing like it used to be. Not exactly this guys fault that the ps4 isn't selling well in Japan.
What does him retiring have to do with the troubles of the PS4? The guy has been working for Sony since 1985, so that's 29 years employed at one company. Maybe the guy wanted to just retire already. Not everything is a conspiracy dude.
Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has been the weakest link for years, on his watch the PlayStation brand declined heavily he should have pushed with strong ideas but they were too few and too week.
Could Yoshida take the position?
Hope he have a good retirement.
Thank you for the service sir, enjoy a life of leisure and gardening and your new boss; Mrs Kawano!
Now get out there and get that booty Mr. Kawano
Enjoy retirement! :D
Sayonara, hope he enjoys retirement:*)
