Major changes are going down at Sony. President Ryoji Chubachi is stepping down, and Sony CEO Howard Stringer will take over Chubachi's role as president. The company's PlayStation boss has a new role, too.
Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai will head a new business group that brings together Sony's mobile electronics and personal computers. It is unconfirmed how this will effect his PlayStation duties, and we are following up with Sony.
"This reorganization is designed to transform Sony into a more innovative, integrated and agile global company," said Stringer. These changes and reorganization "will now make it possible for all of Sony's parts to work together."
In the past, Sony has been infamous for the seeming inability for the company's different divisions to communicate.
