Reports are coming through thick and fast about Sony’s Game division restructuring process. In other words a bunch of Sony employees are about to get the boot.
Whilst they deny this has anything to do with the PS3 possibly not selling as expected it is hard to see a company firing it’s employees if it is doing as expected or better than expected.
Sony is considering a global restructuring of its game unit and job cuts may happen not only in Europe, but also in Japan and North America. Sony’s game unit is currently comprised of about 4,500 employees worldwide.
Some reports have mentioned about a 10% reduction in staff but there has been nothing official as of yet.
