It doesn't even list California headquarters on wiki.

Sony pictures is a subsidiary of the Japanese company Sony.

Sure it is, but the pertinent information remains the same. SIE is the gaming division:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_Interactive_Entertainment

"The same year, SIE moved its headquarters from Tokyo to San Mateo, California."


The decision-making power is now situated in California, as far as is relevant to Playstation.

Headquarters means s***. It's always been in California. SIE or SCE.

SIE and formerly known as Sony Computer Entertainment) is a multinational video game and digital entertainment company that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Sony Corporation.

No it hasn't. It was until recently in Tokyo. Did you even read the link about SIE, because that is all that matters. And you are wrong, fwiw. California is dictating policy, unless you've been living under a rock the last couple weeks.

Like I said it doesn't matter where the headquarters is. It can be in Ethiopia. Its still a subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Sony Corporation.

They gave playstation authority where they want it and can take it when they want. It's not a western company.

And like I said, it makes no difference that it's a subsidiary. You obviously don't understand corporate structure. The decision-making power for Playstation is in California and the entire point of your topic is moot.

You have no understanding of corporate structure. It's still Japanese owned. They just give power of playstation to a division. To have creative control etc. Not control the company.

They could move headquarters to Europe too. That don't mean it's a European company.

Ill say it again. Regardless of where the headquarters is for SIE ( Sony Interactive Entertainment) it's a subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate Sony Corporation.
