Sony Gaming Chief Resigns

Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) announced today that Phil Harrison, President of SCE Worldwide Studios, will resign from his position, effective February 29, 2008. Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO of SCEI, will immediately assume responsibilities as president of SCE WWS, in addition to his current duties. "As one of the founding members of SCE, Phil played a key role in the development and growth of the PlayStation business and our industry," said Kazuo Hirai. "It is sad to see him departing from SCE, but I wish to express my gratitude for his many invaluable contributions and also wish Phil the very best of luck in his future endeavors."

Phil Harrison joined Sony Electronics in 1992, which later evolved into SCE Europe, and since then, has made a tremendous contribution to the company playing a strategic role in the launch of four PlayStation platforms. "The past 15 years at Sony Computer Entertainment has been the defining journey of my life so far," said Harrison. "I am grateful to all the PlayStation family for their incredible support, guidance and friendship. It has been a privilege to serve as part of the team and be inspired by them on a daily basis. I am so proud of everything PlayStation has achieved and will continue to support its future in every way I can."

You all just wait and see. It won't be rushed and it'll still get released broken. This is Sony we're talking about. They do great hardware but their software sucks totally.

Actually, good point. I have to use Sonicstage to get music onto my Sony NWA-3000 and it's the worst software on Windows.

Regarding Home, I think most people would prefer to wait for something that works than get a broken rush-release that everyone sh1ts on.
