SOE Reports to SCEI

Word out of SOE is that the MMORPG wing of Sony, Sony Online Entertainment, will now report to the President of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. The move, it is reported, has been made in order to give the PlayStation a boost through SOE's experience.

As announced in a press release [yesterday], effective April 1, 2008 Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) will report to Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI). The new structure is designed to mutually benefit both companies by further accelerating the PlayStation business through SOE's strong online gaming expertise.

SOE is currently part of Sony Pictures Entertainment. Under the new structure, SOE will continue to develop its games for the PC and the PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3®) computer entertainment system.

The day to day workings of SOE will not change and no employees will be let go. We are thrilled and excited by this change in structure! As Smed was quoted in the press release, "This move is going to broaden our capabilities and expand the development of our products into new and exciting directions."
