    Hirai is still President and CEO of Sony Corporation as a whole, a position he assumed on April 1 of this year. However, his departure from Sony Computer Entertainment's executive branch is notable, as Hirai rose the ranks of Sony through SCE and its international subsidiaries.

    Who will he appoint as his successor in SCE? Just so we know who he'll be bossing around.
