Damn, I always loved his dry, witty humor...

"At Sony we love HD remasters so much that Jim Ryan has decided to become an HD remaster of a Sony Exec in 2006"

I'll miss him for sure. :(

Please give this man some great, final fuel Sony.

Also, UNMASK YOURSELF. It's Shinobi, isn't it?

Shinobi is American and wouldn't even dare say a single bad thing about a video game company.

I always looked at that account as a ps3 era sony and it definitely hasn't been the same the past year or so but 6 years as a parody accounting a CEO is impressive

don't blame him

But it's satire, and undoubtedly comes from a place of love. But yea - not Shinobi.
