Sony's gaming division lost 15.1-percent in sales over the same period last year and the company posted a net loss of $124 million overall. The new division will reportedly be called Sony Japan Asia and will be headed up by Senior Vice President Hiroshi Kawano with current SCE Asia president Hiroyuki Oda becoming the deputy president.

 

Other Japan and Asia management are being shuffled around inside the new division with some managers remaining in their regional post and others seeing a merger of regions. Sony has also set up a new Asian Network Planning Department as well as restructured its Product Management and Loan Management positions.
