Ken Kutaragi Secures a Second Job at Marvelous AQL

Posted by Sammy Barker

Father of PlayStation teams up with Soul Sacrifice developer

It’s taken a while, but it seems that Ken Kutaragi has finally followed his own controversial advice and landed himself a second job. The man behind the PlayStation, and the former chairman and CEO of SCE, has secured the role of external director at Soul Sacrifice developer Marvelous AQL. The news comes courtesy of a Nikkei report.

According to the Japanese publication, the company coveted Kutaragi in particular due to his extensive knowledge of the industry. The luminary will help to develop the organisation’s business both domestically and overseas. We're sure that he'll do a great job – as long as he doesn't mention the Cell.

Kutaragi will assume his new position in June. The ex-PlayStation man is also currently the founder, president, and CEO of Cyber AI Entertainment Inc, and it doesn’t sound like he’ll be stepping down from his existing role. Perhaps the extra work will help the eccentric executive to finally afford a PlayStation 3.

@JavierYHL I'm not sure, but I think he's just going to give advice. That's what it sounds like to me. I very much doubt he'll be involved in development.
