Sony Chairman Howard Stringer to retire in June

After handing over the CEO reins of Sony to Kaz Hirai last year, current chairman Sir Howard Stringer is set to retire from his post this June at the firm's shareholder meeting, reports the Financial Times. According to the outlet, Stringer mentioned at a Japan Society lecture that the transition will let him pursue "new opportunities I've been presented with lately." Stringer didn't divulge what those opportunities are, but we're sure he'll have more time on his hands to play with a certain game console.
