Musical chairs: Why Sony’s exec shuffle matters to gamers

House takes over at SCE, Hirai becomes chairman and Kutaragi edges closer to the door – but what does it all mean for gamers? Rob Fahey answers the question. (Andrew House, Industry, Kaz Hirai, PS3, Sony)

Well written article, makes very good points.

Very good read!

Although I'm sure that Kaz will bring a more consumer/developer centric focus to the executive management groups (as it relates to Playstation). I'm equally sure that Sony will continue to lead in innovative risks. Some will succeed and some will fail. .. and when the moons aligns we get the Vita (at less that’s what I hoping)

I like Kaz, but as a tech-head myself, I have to admit I am a little let down that the engineers are moving down the list, I just hope they are still allowed to aim to deliver a slight edge over the competition instead of batting for completely level grounds to keep the devs smiling.

I know its all about the devs and I don't mean go overboard again like PS3, but maybe have a little more RAM than the competition

I shuffle execs on a daily basis. Like a boss!

Great Article!

I think this shuffle will make Sony more competitive in the long run with a customer/developer focused strategy.

I think the Vita will be the first device to implement this strategy with it's developer focused design and internals, yet still sexy to the consumer.

Win-Win I say!
