Another PlayStation executive has departed the company

Recommended Posts

Following the news that Sony Interactive Entertainment's chairman for Worldwide Studios, Shawn Layden, has left the company, Sony's Japanese branch is undergoing a shakeup of its own.

According to a Gematsu report, Atsushi Morita has retired "due to age." Morita served as SIE Japan Asia's president and SIE's corporate director. Kazuhiko Takeda, who was named the company's deputy president and CFO in July 2018, will serve as the new corporate director. Morita worked as VP of administration and control, as well as several other roles, before taking the presidential and CEO position in 2014. Sony has yet to name a new president of its Japanese branch.

He's 60...the retiring age in Japan. 

 

This is a normal type of leaving cause reason given plus successor announced in official statement.

The Layden one was weird cause it had none of those things. No reason, no replacement, no proper statement.

He has a successor as corporate director, not as president. That's a big hole. 

 

PlayStation is splitting at the seams.

All of their biggest people have been leaving one after another, retirement, change of direction, disagreements, whatever it's totally irrelevant. The people that have led the charge for this platform basically since its inception have one by one left for one reason or another.

 

The old guard, the people that made PlayStation what it is are basically all gone and several of them have left this generation alone, two in just the last week.

The guy mostly ran ForwardWorks, who cares. Shawn Layden's departure is still a mystery, but he isn't the only one making decisions there. What are you trying to imply here? That SIE has now become as terrible as the Xbox division?

I think you need to repair your anus for another round because Jim Ryan is coming for it. :bate:

“The track record of the incumbent platform winning the next time around is not a great one,” he admitted, referring to the fact successful consoles are often followed with flops. “So the major thrust of my executive energy is to avoid complacency.”

This coming from Jim "Who would play that?" Ryan who scoffed at backward compatibility, this coming from Jim "We need to protect the children" Ryan who said crossplay was unsafe for their userbase.

 

Yeah, you're in great hands now, basically the only hands left...

I like how Dynocrap thinks that Sony's success with the Playstation is in danger because of a couple of people are gone, is because Microsoft's Xbox division is complete and utter shit and it appears to be because the work of a couple of people who ran the company into the ground.

Are you retarded? Do you think that he's the one who caved on these things? The guy is totally out of touch with reality. He's leftover with what everyone else did before they quit.
