Weirdness: This Sneaky Sony Engineer Hid His Name in Your PS4

Good luck

Can you find it?

If you were about to leave a company, what would you do to make sure that your name lived on within its walls? Well, Kazuya Sakakihara – an ex-software engineer for Sony, who helped design both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 – decided that the best way for him to leave an indelible mark on the Japanese giant was to quite literally implant himself into its newest console.

Indeed, as you can see in the image below, this crafty coder has managed to slip his entire name into one line of the PS4's HDD code. The eagle-eyed among you may notice that he has actually committed a slight spelling error. However, we suspect that this was an intentional gaffe, put in place to make sure the code ran properly.

What do you make of this nifty piece of trivia? Will you ever be able to look at your super system the same way again? Let us know in the comments section below.

It's an IT thing.

I doubt he was out for fame.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

And even so he managed to mispell his name, lol, get this, we will always remember KazuyaaSkakihara not you!

Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Pretty cool idea



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Its a physical easter egg! Only its on a console, not an egg and we get nothing out of it :D
