Nah, this guy directly reports to KB.

He's a Senior VP, doesn't KB report to him? Or maybe KB got a promotion too?

i think the new set of advertisements Sony is doing has shifted from KB to "Long Live Play". i don't think we'll be seeing any more of Mr. Kevin Butler.

Things were not right and Sony made a good move.

Guy Longworth
15 years classic consumer brand experience with Procter and Gamble, Kraft Foods and Kellogg’s, culminating in 3 years as the Chief Marketing Officer of Kellogg’s largest international business (revenues in excess of $700M).

Those are some BIG BIG names when it comes to being charge of their ads cause they run ads all day long with 100's of products.

I hope he can work some magic with Sony!

I hope we don't start seeing the XMB become an ads space...

I honestly don't envy this guy's job.

Finally, I have been wondering what was up with their markweting for years. Even considering that it may be a part of their strategy. Seems they know that it is time to turn up the heat and with PS3 at $250 already selling like hot cakes, it is a great time to build some more momentum.

Also: I love KB and I think he's done a fine job for them, however, if they want to compete with their compatitors spending and countermarketing, it wouldn't hurt to step their game up.
