Wait, really? Kaz has been doing a pretty solid job turning the company around. I wonder what this means for Sony moving forward.

Saw the April 1st in the title and thought it was a really early April fool's thing lol... sad to see Kaz go, he did a great job turning Sony around, hopefully this new guy will carry it on.

Ceo kaz hirai on twitter announced a while back he was retiring soon aswell. They are both the same person confirmed?

Kaz is going multiplat?

We didn't think the twitter account was really him.... this makes me think it is even more than before

Why not check me out on youtube and help me on the way to 2k subs over at

Hope this don’t get derailed by the fake twitter account garbage. Anyhow, good luck to Kaz, can’t imagine PS without him.

He done good.

...while PS4 on fire? Perfectly-timed retirement.
