With the news that Phil Harrison, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, would be stepping down this week, GameDaily BIZ wondered what impact this might have on the still in beta PlayStation Home virtual world/service.
Phil Harrison was one of the strongest proponents of online experiences for Sony and he helped spearhead the Home initiative, which started its life back on the PS2. Harrison may be moving on, but Sony insists the groundwork that's in place is more than enough to drive the vision for Home going forward.
"[It's] business as usual for Home. The projects that Phil has been working on including Home are still on track and are still sticking to their current schedules," a Sony Computer Entertainment America spokesperson told us. "Each title and project is supported by a wide variety of people behind the scenes to ensure the highest quality and execution."
