Consistently funny from what I've seen posted around the internet. Usually hits nail on head.

I like that Sony embraced the account.

Sad. Sony should hire him to do PR or something for them. I mean it'd be mostly insults but it would be funny as hell.

100K followers, if you have a bit of decency, you should care about your audience and not let them down. Announcing the end just to not make them worry is the best thing they could have done

Yeah I can respect this decision, they've still been able to pull of a few great one-liners over the past year or so but I too got the feeling they were running out of ideas. It's a good idea to try to go out on a high and do one last E3 as well.

I can't say I will miss this because obviously it's a trivial thing and I'm sure I'll still read a few of the things he would've tweeted over various forums or other Twitter accounts but he's made me laugh a few times and hopefully there's a few more to come.

Announcing on stage at E3 2018, real Kaz, it was me all along!

The tweets are absolutely amazing, thanks for the laughs, enjoy the retirement post 2018.

Too bad, made me laugh quite often. But like Kaz has retired from being the face of playsation so does his fake account retire.

Perhaps another one will take its place...

That's too bad but good for having an ending.

Nothing ever has an ending anymore. Things just reiterate until they fizzle out.


The best and most fun games comments over the last 5 years and it's never been crass or offensive or shitty. He's just really sharp.

Unsure what I'd be more sad about, real Kaz or fake Kaz retiring... Real Kaz sorted out PS3 era Sony eventually.

If a well-known GAFer stops posting in 2018 we know who it is.
