Gamasutra: It's official: a video game guy is taking the reins of one of the leading electronics manufacturers on planet Earth.
I wonder if he will be a blabbering idiot like Ken Kutaragi was.
kaz rules :D
I like Kaz... great dude, new boss :P
@Brosy You talk about 4D and all that s***? lol O-T 1. What it means for Sony, for the best of all the people working there, is that maybe he can do all things right and save the company, so, best luck to him and all the others 2.For me, doesn't mean s***, I just care about PlayStation and if Sony crashes and burn, you damn sure PlayStation will be dragged as well, so honestly, hoping the best to all Sony, so PlayStation can stay in the gaming industry delivering the goods :)
Are you in any way related to Bundi? Because you sure sound like you are. XperiaRay
if you took 1/8 of Ken, put that 1/8 through a meat grinder and then selected 1/16 from what was left, it would be worth 10 times more than you
Blasphemous! Don't talk about the God that way!
Don't pretend like people are over-reacting to an obvious anti-sony troll.
@Brosy How dare you mock Lord Kutaragi you peon, and yes Emporer Hirai has come to save us dont worry guys.
So what if he is a blabber but hes no idiot. hes done us very prous as ps3 owners, if you have followed him you would know this. Look at the ip's and the new studios bought over the past 2 years took on by sony.
I don't like this guy's hands. They scare me.
I am a man of vision and power! I will continue to invest in the Playstation and make it like no other home console on the market!
Kaz! Have any PS4 updates for us?
Sup homie, can you please bring back Ken Kutaragi father of PlayStation? We miss you Ken!
This guy loves gaming.. Next ps will be ultimate
It means more Ridge Racer.
lol, More like Riiiiiidge RACER!!!!!
Since I'm not a stock holder so it really doesn't mean much to me just hope he can get the brand macron top. I wish him all the luck.
Well lets hope it means a beefed up network with all their music and movies at your finger tips. I really can't wait to see what they do with this network idea. PS4 please.
So maybe Sony as a whole will have a better focus on their video game department? This will probably mean more exclusives and more games in general! PS4 is gonna be great!
I hope we aren't but secretly know we are. By 'we' I mean you,by 'you' I mean....
Despite losing $2 Billion in Q3. SONY's stock rose +8.9% on Friday. More than any japanese company ALL YEAR. . Why? Kaz Hirai knows his shit. He turned around the train wreck that was the PS3. SONY also is forcasting $200 Billion Yen in profits for its next fiscal year. . This is so awesome from a gamers perspective. A PlayStation guy is running SONY this is going to make competition between the big 3 very interesting in the coming years.
That's ~13% from a drop though. The stocks were ~18 on Wednesday, they dropped to ~17 yesterday and are now up to ~19. So the 13% is a bit over-exaggerated :)
Ridgeee racerr !!!!!!!! could not resist lol
I've always believed that a Japanese should run a Japanese company
While they are at it, give Jackie T a promotion too. He's a hard-working, gamer man too! Congrats to Mr. Kaz Hirai; very awesome guy.
YEA!!! team kaz ftw howard sucks
