Unexpected. I remember seeing his perfectly fluent Japanese in the promo for Hideo Kojima and how warm it felt that this great man was running Sony.
So long, excited to see what’s up with your next adventure.
Weird i thought Sony computer entertainment ( the PlayStation part of Sony ) was doing well ? Did he found a football club he could manage as well ?
I wouldn't read anything about the health of Sony into this. It's a stressful job, he's had it for a while, and he probably has all the money in the world already. I can't imagine he was fired.
@soulcake: I think this is more of a case of an exec stepping away when they are pretty much at the top of their game and achieving a pretty massive milestone. I imagine it opens a lot of opportunities for you when you can say you're coming off of building the number 1 product in your market/industry.
@soulcake: It is doing well. This is likely him wanting to do something else combined with there being no higher position within Sony for him to go to. So long as Kaz is still around there's a ceiling on how high guys like Andrew House can get.
I hope he stays around in the company. He's a likable personality. He was obviously very business oriented but he had a charm about him.
House, who is 52, will remain as chairman until the end of the year.
Gives them time to announce a successor. Sounds like Andrew wants to move on, rather than a reshuffle.
