According to a report from Nikkei, Kazuo Hirai is about to be named the President of Sony. Howard Stinger would continue to act as CEO and Chairman. Rumor has it Hirai will take over as soon as this April. Hirai is currently the Executive Deputy President.
I assume Kaz (we're on a first syllable basis) is so psyched about his promotion he's going to gift everyone a copy of Ridge Racer. That joke is still funny, right?
