If that deficit is true, I would say that he made the right call. I wouldn't want to have to deal with that mess either.

Steps down as SCE chairman. He's been the SCE chairman for 5 years so it's not "already".

As a note, that's Kaz stepping down from being the Chairman of Sony Computer Entertainment, not CEO of Sony.

This information is being misread, he is stepping down as chairman of the board, not CEO and president of the company. He will still be in charge of running the company, but not the board

He is still President and CEO of the company. He is just no longer the Representative Director and Chairman. The man can only wear so many hats.

Might wanna learn what's what: he's stepping down from PlayStation (Sony Computer Entertainment) and focuses on his biggest role... President and CEO of SONY Corporation.
