Forums - Gaming Discussion - Kazuo Hirai should be fired.

It really does need to happen seeing as how Sony's condition hasn't improved in the straight 2 years ever since he reigned.

If nothing improves by next year then Kaz really needs to go ...

sony should only make movies and consoles they should ditch everything else.

Sony was a mess when he inherited it, and I don't think he could really be blamed for not turning it around in the short time he had.

He did completely undo Kutaragi's mess in SCE, so he has something of a proven track record of turning a company around. I think it's worth giving him another couple of years at least.

I believe their insurance business is making them decent money.  Not entirely sure (just heard it before on these forums) but it makes sense.

Sony doesn't like to fire in small numbers... just if we can fire everyone from Manager level and up.

For everyone who doesn't know who is Kazuo hirari (AKA "Kaz"), he was the president of Sony Computer Entertainment in 2006 and paved his way to the President and Chief Officer role in 2012.

He is the President of the Sony Corp. and he is responsible for the current state of the company.  If you follow Sony's numbers then you would know that they aren't pretty at all. And it's all thanks to this man and his dumb decisions. We are being told to wait, that he is making changes to drive the company forward and other kind of lame lies. But in the end people want results and Kaz certainly isn't showing them. In his defense he did sell one building one of these year and they showed no loss in their reports, but what does this tell us for the company's future? Sony needs to keep on selling buildings to generate a profit? How many buildings do they have left?

I say that he should be fired and be replaced with younger blood. Sony can't keep on suffering like this.

And this is coming from a Sony fanboy.

Are you kidding me?  Yeah Sony isn't doing well, but it is turning around as apposed to hemoraging money left and right BEFORE he was elected.  Getting rid of the PC, TV, and other money wasting ventures are things that needed to happen a long time ago (And he is the one finally making these things happen).

Prediction for console Lifetime sales:

Wii:100-120 million, PS3:80-110 million, 360:70-100 million

[Prediction Made 11/5/2009]

3DS: 65m, PSV: 22m, Wii U: 18-22m, PS4: 80-120m, X1: 35-55m

I gauruntee the PS5 comes out after only 5-6 years after the launch of the PS4.

Stop dancing around the point, shut the entire company down and sell off the profitable parts send em all home with golden parachutes and just say fuck it to the consumers and shareholders. That's what you want right?

I mean you can stop pretending like you care about the wellbeing of a billion dollar industry, the millions of people that work there or the country supported by its infrastructure and admit that the company who manufacturers the boxes of plastic you prefer sells a couple million more is more important to you. Nothing wrong with that, what's a couple million lives to your gaming preferences.

I mean what are you waiting for?
