Kutaragi Leaves Top Spots

Ken Kutaragi is leaving his main positions at the head of Sony's PlayStation division as of June, the company announced today. Though staying on with the company as a senior technical advisor to CEO Howard Stringer, Kutaragi is leaving his CEO and chairman spots at Sony Computer Entertainment, which handles all of the company's console-related efforts. SCE president Kaz Hirai will assume the CEO role in his coworker's place.

Officially described as a retirement, the departure is widely believed to be a response to the poor sales of the PS3 since its November debut as well as the hardware design choices that caused shippind delays and inflated the Blu-Ray system's price.
