Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced Jim Ryan is the new Deputy President of the company, effective immediately.

Ryan has been the company’s Head of Global Sales and Marketing, duties he will now share with his new position under President and Chief Executive Officer Tsuyoshi “John” Kodera and existing Deputy President Kazuo Miura. The goal behind his new position is to “further reinforce and accelerate the PlayStation business on a global scale.”

“It’s a huge honor to be named a Deputy President of SIE. I’m looking forward to leveraging the experience that I have at PlayStation, both in Europe and also in leading Global Sales and Marketing, to support John Kodera as SIE strives to further expand the PlayStation business globally,” Ryan said. “Together with all our employees and partners, I’m committed to continuing to deliver unique entertainment offerings that are only possible on PlayStation.”

In recent news, the company’s flagship console, the PlayStation 4, sold over 5.9 million units in the previous holiday season, further pushing their cumulative worldwide sales to over 73.6 million units.

    Isn’t this the guy who said no one cares about backwards compatibility among other things? Oh boy, you Sony fans are in for a treat.

    Playstation in general is collapsing all around itself. I love how sites like Nichegamer aren’t covering the downfall of Quantic Dream and David Cage, which is happening RIGHT NOW. Or talking at length about God of War and how much that title has alienated fans, including Hideki Kamiya himself, or just how much better the Switch was from day one than PS4 FOUR YEARS IN.

    Jesus christ dude. I hate Sony with a great amount of passion but you’re asking for this place to be like the other sites you visit. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/851b9ce9632755b30c6442ba88357ff3c37e04442465490859bf0572a3b2793f.png At this point you’re just complaining that everybody isn’t acting as much a fanboy as you.

    Hm, so that’s the cunt who helped curb my enthusiasm for the PS4.

  • JohnnyCageFan2

    How do you know all of this, senpai? Besides your obvious bias, I honestly thank you, been stuck in Nintendo Land for some time now.

    It’s not being talked about because Sony has a press that protects them to the nth degree.

    I follow the news.

    I don’t use or care about emulators.

  • iswear12

    Then don’t talk about them like you do.

    I’ll have to make a point to look around some more before returning to my rock.

    Oh gawd, it’s this sack of shit that said no one cared about backwards compatibility….. the future of PS….. it’s something, something dark.

    Honestly, it’s hard believing these claims lately, specially when the whole trinity comes together. I can believe people being homophobic or racist, but it’s always sexist racist, homophobic in that order, and then there are swastikas involved.
    Besides, the studio’s new IP is all centered about victimhood and SJW bs, I call leftists eating their own once again.

    “Or talking at length about God of War and how much that title has alienated fans, including Hideki Kamiya himself”
    The only thing I found was Kamiya saying Devil May Cry and Japanese should become more cinematic like the new direction God of War has taken… which is a very bad idea if you ask me.

    It’s just teasing, people are too fucking soft these days. “Is this a cousin of yours?” is funny.

  • RIP Sony.
