WSJ is reporting that Sony's incoming CEO, Kazuo Hirai, says he will consider leaving businesses, reducing the company's workforce, and making other "hard decisions" if necessary. It's the latest tough-talk from Sony's new chief, in the midst of the company's latest economic woes: Hirai was appointed CEO in response to mounting corporate losses, and just yesterday, Standard & Poor's downgraded Sony's long-term credit rating due to a middling TV division and concerns over competition. Hirai tells WSJ that "there's no area that we are leaving as a sacred area," but that Sony hasn't come up with any conclusions on layoffs or restructuring just yet.
