Time to let new Sony management shine, says Deering

"PS3 will be looked back upon ten years from now as a fabulous, life-changing invention..."

Former Sony Europe boss Chris Deering has backed his old company, telling GamesIndustry.biz that now is a good time to let new management breathe fresh life back into the company.

The entertainment giant has taken some well-publicised knocks recently, with the game division suffering a 68 per cent drop in operating profits due to the launch of the PlayStation 3, slow manufacturing of the crucial Blu-ray diodes and criticism over perceived poor sales of the luxury home console.

But with highly-regarded names Ken Kuturagi retired and Kaz Hirai taking on a CEO role, Deering says that the time is right for background players at Sony to step forward and help the company shine once again.

"I'm optimistic about PlayStation. Of course there was the changing of the guard with Ken [Kutaragi] retiring and Kaz [Hirai] moving," said Deering in an exclusive interview published today.

Am I the only one sick of these partronizing statements from sony and their 'friends' - like we can't make up our own minds.

Just remember kiddies - sony knows best.
