On March 29, a new era began for PlayStation

PlayStation is about to change direction, yes creative.
The well-known CEO Jim Ryan has decided to say goodbye to Sony to dedicate himself to something else.
After thirty years in the company and having led it since 2019, an era for PlayStation ended on March 29th.
Among the man's motivations is the tiredness of traveling between Europe and the United States.
In fact, the Englishman lived far from Sony's meeting places.
However, the farewell is rather sad, both for Ryan and for the Playstation team who this winter gave a unique edition of PlayStation 5 to the CEO to thank him for the work done.
It is not easy to say what the direction of Sony PlayStation (SIE) will now be, at the moment the role is covered by a replacement, but it will be the announcement of the new CEO that will dictate the future years of success (or not) of one of the most sold in history.

Jim Ryan's official comment: After 30 years, I have decided to retire from SIE in March 2024.
I have appreciated the opportunity to do the work I love in a very special company, working with great people and incredible partners.
But I find it increasingly difficult to balance life in Europe and work in North America.
[…] PlayStation will always be part of my life and I feel more optimistic than ever about the future of SIE.
I want to thank Yoshida-san for putting so much trust in me and for being an incredibly sensitive and supportive leader.

It is difficult to achieve record successes like that of PlayStation 2 (160 million units sold), but they are nevertheless a point of reference and an objective for the future.
