And then what sucks is that even though the PS3 had a rough start.. Its picking up steam. And will probably turn out to be a success in the end or at least a great learning experience for Sony.. Yet he was still punished in the moment of the rough patch.

But I guess someone could attribute the PS3s growing success with Kaz in position now.
