A Message from Sony Santa Monica Studio’s Newest Employee

Posted by Seth Killian // Lead Game Designer, Sony Santa Monica Studio:

Hello PlayStation, I’m Seth Killian.

A few of you may know me as a familiar face in the world of fighting games, but I’m writing today to say that I’ve joined Sony as the lead game designer for the external group at the Sony’s Santa Monica Studio. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3, Seth Killian)

Fantastic news, they aren't screwing around with this game. It's clear that there is a lot of talent behind this, can't wait for EVO

First the Gaikai announcement and now this. Great day for Sony!

The experience and knowledge Seth will add to the development of this game could be massive.

How far into development are they? He just got there right? So, how much input does he get? Would they be willing to make major changes? Or was he brought there for something more?

This is huge news man. This game has potential to be really good now. Seth Killian's influence on this game could be what makes it more than a typical brawler. Shit is about to go down.

That is a huge upgrade for him coming from scamcom and joining one of the best studios out there.

OMG! Sony got Seth Killian! And hes working on PS Battle Royale. Add to the fact Sony announced they got Gaikai today! This day belongs to Sony and I wish Seth nothing but luck in anything and everything he does. Hope he stays with them for a real long time or at least a lot longer than he did with Capcom.

The inclusion of Seth Killian is a great hiring for Sony as he definitely knows his stuff. The advice he can give to Superbot can only make PSASBR even better.

What excites me more is the connections that Seth has that can be added to the roster for PSASBR. Sony Santa Monica like Seth says is a hidden jewel for Sony & one of the best developers on the market, with his addition it can only get better.

Capcom is losing talent fast
-Seth killian-Now lead designer at SMS.
-Keji Inafune-Working on soul sacrefice.
-They basicly put Ono in the hospital would not surprise me if he left next.

Good for Seth probably 1 of the best community managers out there
