That's a very high up position to step down from. I'd stay.

RetrospectRealm3643d ago

Well CEO is the leader of the company... so yeah... kind of obvious.

People keep saying Sony is hiding something with recent lay offs and other high up people leaving their current positions in the gaming industry. BUT Jack has been working with Sony for 19 years!! He's probably had enough or something lol

Funniest moment from him: Promising to pay $1.2k for every PS3 you find in stores.

Still can't get over that. Besides that, he seemed to be a solid businessman.

RetrospectRealm3643d ago

Definitely knew how to run the company right, unlike Microsoft with their Xbox. Let's hope his successor is just as good.

"...unlike Microsoft with their Xbox."

Currently, they still have kinks to work out and an image to continue restoring since One's reveal, but that hasn't always been the case.

-The start of the Original Xbox actually began as a pretty genuine example of a console manufacturer providing PC-like hardware with a lot of developer feedback on what they wanted to see at the time.

-The 360 copied that same developer-friendly penchant (still mostly AAA at the time) when it came to hardware and had a great starting run for indies getting that sort of success.

They've known how to handle Xbox well in the past, but not with much consistency. And those bad times are really, really pronounced.

I was talking about Xbox now. I've been an Xbox user since the first one, but switched over when One came out.

I got what you were focusing on. That's why I said "Currently, they still have kinks to work out and an image to continue restoring since One's reveal."

I lol'd.

Though that move is... well... sweet ;)

Raf1k13723d ago

That's an interesting spin on it. They're either desperate to sell as many consoles as possible or he was just being nice.

Spiewie 3723d ago

It's ridiculous he probably has two more playstations in his house.
