Ken Kutaragi gets lifetime achievement award

kutaragiKen Kutaragi is known to millions around the world as the creative brains behind the development of the first PlayStation. His handiwork was also in the development of the PS2, PSP and PS3.

Next year, Kutaragi will be getting the lifetime achievement award from the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences at a special ceremony on February 7th at the annual D.I.C.E summit in Las Vegas, Nevada for his work in the game industry.

Kutaragi ascended to the position of President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, but later was reassigned to other duties, which kept him out of the day-to-day operations following the PS3’s shaky debut in 2006. He later resigned his position and became a consultant for Sony.

Joseph Olin, president of the AIAS said, ""If it wasn’t for Ken and his concept of the original PlayStation, there wouldn’t be the billion dollar industry there is today. His contributions have clearly set new standards for developers, publishers and consumers worldwide."
