Kutaragi To Head New Sony and Namco Company

Sony and Bandai-Namco have announced a ¥100 million (£415,000) joint venture to develop content based on the Cell processor at the heart of the PS3 – and other devices. Called Cellius, it will be formalised on March 5th with 'Father of PlayStation', Ken Kutaragi, as chairman.

According to Satoshi Fukuoka, a spokesman for Sony in Tokyo, Cellisus' focus will be on "new entertainment products including audio and visual content."

Bandai-Namco will take 51% with Sony owning the residual 49% stake. The management will come from both companies, the president and one executive will come from Namco; Sony will provide the other executives.

I guess Kutaragi will have to give up his spot on The Benny Hill Show.

ken is gonna focus on cell based games and show them how it's done, and those who wished ken would leave get their wish too, this can't be anything but great, I wonder who his successor in sony will be? well anyones better, so this is a great step for sony! maybe things are looking upwards from here!

Nowhere in that article did I see a mention of games.... all I read was "new entertainment products including audio and visual content". Let's just hope that " the ¥100 million (£415,000) joint venture to develop content" emphasises GAME content for the Cell.... I'm getting tired of the promises and want to see what products coded specifically for that proc can do!!!

Good God.
The one man most responsible for destroying this company's public image among its faithful is getting something new to screw up?

"Our new games will be in 5800p at 24,000fps, and will display in 6 dimensions. We will unlock the full potential of the PS3, transforming it into a holographic tank that can fly to the moon and speak in the moon language: Yarble-Garble Nezzik."
-Ken Kutaragi, next Christmas
