      I see alot of people looking at this like a sign of bad things to come. Its really unclear. I look at some of the history of Sony. Where their lack of Japanese games. Also not allowing games to be sold without having English titles. (Russian shooters and gta clones). They used to have a ban on 2D Games. So I am assuming (just like some assume this companies going down under) that We will get more global releases. more Japanese without the translation requirements (english text on the title, or dubs). More On the rail shooters. Also maybe See some changes to the vita where you can use multiple PSN accounts. Thats a network thing and the (former?) networking COO is taking over. So yeah I look at this in a positive light. For worse things I expect more free games, more pc ports, and more dlc
