Probably the only true story of today (what a date selected by Sony). Here goes-
Sony Computer Entertainment Japan (SCEJ), Sony Computer Entertainment Asia, and Sony Computer Entertainment Pan-Asia are being dissolved as of today, according to an official statement [via] from Sony this morning. Asia and Pan-Asia are also being dissolved.
In their place is a new division, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia (SCEJA), which will be headed up by President Hiroshi Kawano (erstwhile President of SCEJ). We’re awaiting a proper English translation, but it seems the goal was to provide new management structure and support with a focus on publishing and development.
And no, it’s not an April Fools, even Shuhei Yoshida took to Twitter to confirm the news.
Yeah, silly date to pull this one out of the hat, Sony.
