Man i miss Ken Kutaragi. Even though i feel Kaz Hirai will do a great job of taking after his place.

Ken was the only reason Playstation even happened in the first place.

Without him, we won't be seeing the unique hardware architectures and technology. We also won't be seeing the pushing of newest media at the time such as CDs, DVDs, and Bluray.

But I still have full faith in Sony to deliver on NGP and PS4, especially with how great they've been doing the past couple of years.

You're forgetting they're Japanese(with ninjas and stuff ;]) so they'll try to continue his legacy and follow his path.
This isn't Square.

I'm still hoping for a Ken Kutaragi comeback sometime in the future, perhaps when PS4 gets announced. The press would go apeshit if he came back as the father of Playstation!

Kaz is one position away from running the whole show. Pretty crazy.

I wonder what this would mean for PlayStation though. He's been heading up PS for a long time, if it means PS get's more resources, the Kaz would be the best choice imo.

I doubt it does. He has no reason to have any loyalty to PS over the rest of the Sony brand.

@ Bill Nye: *sigh* Clearly my comment went over your head. I know what they meant. I specifically mentioned that they were spelling mistakes for a reason you know. Geez. You've lost your touch since you lost your show.

EDIT: Obviously went over a few heads. Guess I need to be completely literal when posting because people can't comprehend meaning in between the lines.
