Today Is Jim Ryan’s Last Day As PlayStation CEO

PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan retiring

Jim Ryan’s final day as PlayStation CEO is here as he is set to retire from the company after 30 years.

His retirement was first announced in September 2023.

“I’ve relished the opportunity to have a job I love in a very special company, working with great people and incredible partners,” Ryan said at the time of the announcement. “But I’ve found it increasingly difficult to reconcile living in Europe and working in North America.

“I will leave having been privileged to work on products that have touched millions of lives across the world; 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 placing so much trust in me and being an incredibly sensitive and supportive leader.”

Ryan had been PlayStation CEO since 2019 after taking over for John (Tsuyoshi) Kodera. Prior to being CEO he held numerous senior positions such as executive vice president and COO within Sony.

Starting Monday, April 1, Sony president, COO and CFO Hiroki Titoki will take over as PlayStation CEO on an interim basis.

There is no timetable for when Sony plans to name a permanent CEO of PlayStation.

  1. “Ryan had been PlayStation CEO since 2019”

    Between 2019-2024 Sony blocked so many third-party great games on Xbox: Deathloop, Final Fantasy 7, 16, Silent Hill 2, Star Wars Remake and countless others. His aggressive strategy was main reason why MS acquired Bethesda and Activision to defend Xbox and PC.

    I hope next Playstation CEO will be better

  2. Good riddance to a greedy money grubbing bastard. I preferred the CEO we had during the ps3 era. The ps3 era was the truly last great time to be a PlayStation fan.

  3. I think they should stop talking nonsense about the vpu when only 2 games don’t run at 1080p 60 fps because they are poorly optimized, even the ps4 had games with better quality in the use of the cpu.
