          Anon, San Mateo is where PlayStation headquarter is at. It only says he is located there because he just moved there.

          Also why are your connections a bunch of brownies?

      There is always two, a master and an apprentice. One to embody power, the other to crave it.

        The fact that the Apprentice is trained until he is able to strike down the Master and take his place is not only metal as frick but also romantic.

    Hulst has been CEO of PlayStation Studios since 2018, so all that's happened is Nishino has taken Jim Ryan's role and they've changed their titles a bit

    Are we gonna get some good ol' Japan vs Western leadership like Sega or something?

    I thought I heard something about Hulst being responsible for the push to deprioritize Japan and close Japan Studio, so interesting to see him "rivalling" with a Jap.

      Yes except unlike Sega there won’t be any kino made in spite of all the bad decisions. At least there were bright spots in the Saturn and especially the Dreamcast catalog.

      That would unironically be great if we had a Japanese guy for JP games and then a western guy for Western games.

    Reminder they hate you and everything about you. You are no longer their target audience and haven’t been for years. They want you to forget everything old (and Japanese or weird or experimental) about the company or get the frick out of the way. These two CEOs were hired to do just that, and so will the next one, and the next one, and so on. Wanting things to “get better” is delusional, they will only ever get worse.
