Report: The New President of Sony Is Kaz Hirai, the Boss of Playstation

Illustration for article titled Report: The New President of Sony Is Kaz Hirai, the Boss of Playstation

Nikkei is reporting that Kaz Hirai will finally be promoted to President of Sony (in April). If you remember, Hirai has been the Playstation boss for quite some time and was rumored to be in talks of becoming President as far back as November 2010. Sony sure took its time with this one.

So now Kaz's duties expand to cover all of Sony as President while Howard Stringer is still CEO and Chairman. Hopefully the Kaz and Stringer combo can bring Sony back to its glory days. Maybe? Possibly? [Nikkei via The Verge, Image Credit: Wikipedia]

I like how this doesn't nearly get as much attention as Steve Jobs resigning.

Just shows that Apple is very iconic, whether or not people don't like their products.

Hopefully Kaz fixes Sony up a little. But considering that PlayStation is just getting locked down more and more, I can't see him helping much.

I want Sony to get their TVs back for a start. Then stop doing gimmicky cameras and get back to making most stuff professional-like.
