Roger Ehrenberg over at Information Arbitrage has posted an interesting analysis of the predicament and performance of Howard Stringer, Sony’s CEO. It contains some information about the culture at Sony that is interesting to know in combination with their current PR problems in the games sector.
News has an interesting momentum. The lure of a good story, e.g. “Sony is arrogant / doing terrible”, is strong – I know I haven’t been able to resist it. But ‘public opinion’ can change rapidly. Remember when people hated Electronic Arts? Microsoft? Nintendo? Alright, some people still do, of course. But public image wise, these companies are doing much better now.
Still, that doesn’t mean Sony is doing great… does it?
I need more popcorn.
