6/08/2007 09:34:00 AM Eastern

Tokyo — Sony Computer Entertainment today announced personnel cut backs in its North American operation as part of a plan to reorient its PlayStation3 business as a network centric gaming device.

According to published reports, Sony has not released the number of U.S. jobs to be eliminated nor whether there would be cutbacks to follow in Japan. The gaming unit employs about 1,500 people in the United States.

Sony underwent a round of layoffs in April when it let go about 10 percent of its European work force.
