Honor. Something most big American corporations lost the understanding of. When companies are falling in America all you hear is about CEO's getting bonuses ever since the economic collapse. Kudos to Iwata and Hirai for both respectively taking pay cuts when their companies went through financial turmoil.

In fairness, Pandit didn’t receive a bonus in cash or stock last year, and he worked for a relatively pedestrian $125,001 salary for 2009. In February of that year, he agreed to work for $1 a year, and he pledge to take the salary until Citigroup was profitable again. The bank this week posted $10.6 billion in net income for 2010.

Again... this is such garbage.  There are many examples of Western CEO's taking pay cuts or... hey... you know being fired for fucking their companies up.

Kzz should be fired if he hasnt turned this around in another 12 months.  He will have had 3 years and many broken promises.  Iwata should have already been fired.

 

The companies woes come from the PC end of the corporation. They need to sell it off. I have no idea what Kaz needs to be fired for. You're sounding extremely sour.

This is nice to see. 



I'm not pretending to be an expert here but if sony were to focus solely on the playstation brand wouldn't they have to lay off thousands of people and due to there financial situation be completely fucked if they were to make a single mistake. just because the playstation brand is popular now does not mean that it will always be popular.

Sour about what?  lol

Check my post history, I never rated the guy.  He gets a shit ton of praise for essentally cutting the price of the PS3.... thats it.

He made many promises 2 years ago... they arent happening, his ONE SONY vision will be a bust soon.  He originally said TV's were essential.  He makes many promises and positive forecasts only for them all to fall to the ground.  He has one more year imo.  Stock down, still huge losses, buring through asstes.  Cant see what good he has done to be honest.  Perhaps you can help me?  He has eventuallty capitulated, sort of, with TV's YEARS after any high school kid could have told him he was flogging a dead and rotting corpse.  If he thinks Sony mobile is his saviour then god help him.

Stop Tv's and mobile (there is no serious money in mobiles), stop making consumer electronics all together.  Concentrate on industrial high margin electronics, software (films and music), financial services and Playstation. 



I'm not really here!

We are talking two different things.  You're talking Sony as a whole and I'm talking game division.  "Yawn"


Yeah, Sony as a whole is very succesful. Riiiiiight.


Wrong!  If that's true then Sony CEO-excutives won't need a paycut.  Riiiiiight.

This why i think consoles need a longer shelf now, stop coming out with a console every 5 years they will be killing the video game industry if they do. I say 7 at minimum , 9 maximum. Its hard for CEO s who never founded the company to think outside a box once in awhile.



Kaz Hirai is following the way of Iwata. Does this mean he'll start hosting Sony Directs?
