The lights are on
Sony's current chairman and former CEO Howard Stringer has announced that he is retiring from the company in June.
Last April, Stringer stepped down as CEO, handing over responsibilities to Kaz Hirai. Stringer is involved with all things Sony, not just the video game division. He will be officially retiring in June according to a report from the Financial Times.

If i worked for sony, not sure if i would want to retire, lol.
Congrats on a wonderful career at Sony! Now it's time for Howard to relax and enjoy himself.
It always baffled me how a foreigner, in the eyes of the Japanese, was CEO and chairmen of the board of one of the biggest Japanese companies out there. I mean the Japanese are very xenophobic, almost to the point of absurdity. I just find it funny that this guy, a poster child of the quintessential western business man, became the head of a Japanese corporation.
As long as whoever replaces him is competent, Sony will be fine.
