Sony gets lucky/smart: Crazy Ken K is out of the picture

Sony's Ken Kutaragi leaving SCE chairman and CEO spots in June - Engadget

Retirement is the claim. In any case, Kens dreams are way bigger than Sony or consumer budgets. While the PS3 seemed awesome on paper, it's implementation on cost just aren't realistic for the moment. Wireless is for slow mobile devices, not for a console with a 1Gb ethernet card. The card readers didn't need to be there, and the software should have been user friendly. No excuses; they had time for development; a whole extra year.

Hopefully Sony's management shifts will clean up the Playstation brand and get them on track. While they are making money, they need to worry about providing better services and worry more about games than Blu-ray.
