Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, Asia, Pan-Asia Dissolved, One Company Formed
Sony have today announced that it is closing Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, Sony Computer Entertainment Asia and Sony Computer Entertainment Pan-Asia, replacing all three companies with Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia. The one company will run across several territories, not entirely unlike SCEE has been doing for years. This will mean several big changes to the way these territories are run. Although it seems odd timing – what with it being April Fools and all – it’s also the first day of the new financial year.
The newly formed company will be led by Hiroshi Kawano.
