Sony May Cut Game Division Jobs Worldwide

Last week, news leaked that 160 "redundancies" at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, roughly 10% of their workforce, were being cut from the company following the launch of the PlayStation 3 overseas. Such downsizing does not appear to be limited to Europe. Sony Computer Entertainment spokesman Satoshi Fukuoka told Reuters such changes could be in store in both Japan and the United States, though nothing has been decided -- yet.

The story is too old to be commented.

For a start those 160 were not all games division. Only a fraction of them were. A lot of them were to do with entertainment, and many in the games division were play testers.

Just trimming the fat to tweak operations, nothing new here.

That would make me nervous, if I worked for Sony.

I just hope getting rid of testers isn't a bad thing..
