Kaz Hirai is no longer Sony Computer Entertainment chairman

Posted By | On 27th, Jun. 2012 Under News | Follow This Author @KartikMdgl

Kazuo Hirai, president and CEO of Sony, has stepped down as Sony Computer Entertainment chairman. It has been a long and prestigious period for Kaz Hirai at SCE, and it is basically because of that division why he rose through the ranks and assumed the highest post at Sony.

SCE has also revealed new appointments in the department, which you can check out here. Hiroshi Kawano has retained the position of president of SCE Japan, and he will be there at this year’s Tokyo Game Show event. Kazuo Hirai, however, is still a part-time member of the board.

This news isn’t ominous for SCE, as being the president and CEO of the whole company still means the same thing. The appointments are effective from June 25th 2012.

    This will be very humbling for the old samurai’s inside Sony corp.

    I used to be a Sega fan and resented the PlayStation’s overnight dominance. But even though I love my Dreamcast I ended up playing more on my PlayStation.

    Now I have been following the history of the PlayStation and I tell you it has the best and the most dramatic story of all time in video game history.

    What gravitated me to PlayStation brand is its integrity as gaming platform. It has run a steady & unwavering course through out history since day one of its conception.

    Ever on the cutting edge of marrying high technology hardware & fresh new risky gaming content then presenting it to the mass market.

    No matter where Sony PlayStation ends up it will always have my highest respect & enthusiasm.

    I guess its Long Live PlayStation!

    Good riddance. He’s running Sony into the ground and taking PlayStation down with it. Sony’s stock is crumbling and the company value is only 7% of what it was worth at its peak in 2000. His face is that of a demon with that laugh. GTFO Kaz!
