Soundtracks from Capcom games on Spotify
If you are a fan of video game soundtracks, especially Japanese ones, we have good news for you. Capcom decided to put a lot of soundtracks from their old and new productions on Spotify. During work, study or driving we can listen to melodies from the Mega Man, Devil May Cry, Monster Hunter, Ace Attorney, Street Fighter or Resident Evil series. To find them all, just type the phrase Capcom Sound Team in the app's search engine. However, the fact that most albums and songs are described in Japanese makes things a bit difficult - the only way to navigate and find a soundtrack of interest is to look at the thumbnails.
New CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment
Sony Interactive Entertainment, a division of the Japanese video game giant, has been reshuffled at the highest levels. John Kodera, who has been its CEO since 2017, will be replaced by Jim Ryan, Sony's associate for fifteen years, on April 1. For more than twelve months he has been the Vice-President of Sony Interactive Entertainment, so promotion to a higher position should not come as particularly shocking to him, although, of course, as he stresses, it is a great honour. Quoting his words:
I've seen the PlayStation business grow and change massively since the very early days, and I hope to be able to put that experience to good use in reinforcing the foundations of the Game & Network Service business, and in evolving the entertainment that PlayStation offers to its engaged and passionate community.
What fate awaits John Kodera after April 1? He will remain with Sony Interactive Entertainment as vice president and will be responsible for creating "innovative experiences" for users and improving PlayStation Network.
