Sad seeing the old crew retire :(. It'll be the end of kazinator and uncle reggie memes we had since way back in oldie system wars.

Hopefully it's a happy chapter in their lives though!

That's really not even that old, and is actually kinda early to be retiring by most standards. Though the guy is probably rich as hell. So why not get out early.

Feb 15 must also be when you started gaming seeing as you don't know who Kaz is.

His sig is kinda misleading. Daily used to be a regular poster in the news articles until he stumble into SW.

From what I've witnessed, most companies CEO/Chairmen/CFOs/CTOs/etc retire before 65 is what it used to go by. Saying 50's may sound old coming from me, I'm aware some consider still young but life is full of surprises. Gotta live'em to the fullest ya'know.

The anchor of sanity when PS was mad drunk on its own success. And the man who launched a thousand memes.

Job well done Hirai-san, smoke em while you got em.

When he took over Sony they were worth about 10 billion dollars. They are now worth nearly 70 billion. I'd say he did a great job.

Its not misleading dav as I was still stirring cows in the (you know what is misleading calling them news articles when they were clickbait) news articles too, so you are wrong.

There's no doubt Daily knows who he is. He's probably using a picture of his face for a dartboard. Kaz gives him ulcers.

Sony is not een close to being "one of the biggest companies in the world". Never Mind Apple, Google and MSFT dwarfing them, then you have Big oil corps, Pharma.

Umm actually, it depends on what do you mean by "BIG". If you're talking monetary value, you may be correct, if you're talking popularity, Sony is in fact VERY big in that aspect. Everyone in existence knows who\what Sony is.

C'mon man no one in the WORLD calls a company big because its popular with its toxic fanbase lol.

It comes down to money, always has, always will be.

Popularity......
