I agree. Hopefully Kaz can manage to turn things around and make the PS3 successful. Ken Kutaragi was awful at PR stuff and marketing, and overall, I think was a negative for the PS3. This is one of my favorite quotes of his:

 "We want for consumers to think to themselves 'I will work more hours to buy one'. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else...The PS3 will instill discipline in our children and adults alike. Everyone will know discipline."

It is kind of something you think a sweat shop owner would say about earning bathroom breaks.

The guy didn't get fired or anything. He basically changed positions. Instead of overseeing day to day operations, he is now in control of the ENTIRE operation.
 
THat sounds more like a promotion than anything else.
