What Hirai's promotion means for Sony (and you)

Gamasutra: It's official: a video game guy is taking the reins of one of the leading electronics manufacturers on planet Earth. (Kaz Hirai, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Sony)

I wonder if he will be a blabbering idiot like Ken Kutaragi was.

You talk about 4D and all that s***? lol


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.

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

Don't pretend like people are over-reacting to an obvious anti-sony troll.

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!

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.
RememberThe357  +   1310d ago
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!
A LIVING LEGEND  +   1310d ago
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
SpartanGR  +   1309d ago
I've always believed that a Japanese should run a Japanese company
banjadude  +   1309d ago
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.
