My reaction is

Update: Sony has denied the report. Hirai is not getting a promotion.

Original Story: A Nikkei business report is claiming that Kazuo Hirai, PlayStation veteran and current executive deputy president of Sony Computer Entertainment, will be taking over as president of Sony Corporation in the few coming months

A board meeting will be held next month, which will regulate the process of replacing current Sony boss, CEO and chairman Sir Howard Stringer – who will apparently be stripped from his position, with Hirai stepping up as new Sony president as early as April.

It concludes that Stringer is likely to maintain his role as chairman and chief executive officer.

Hirai, the early-2011-appointed deputy president, also manages Sony’s consumer businesses – hence another promotion for the man wouldn’t be surprising at all. Better wait for an official word from Sony.

Other than his excessively biased enthusiasm toward gaming, and technology behind the whole industry, there's a huge fondness inside that drives him nuts to pick up his keyboard and start writing for the love of it.
