Sony Santa Monica Plans On Approaching Some Of The Ex-Irrational Devs About Coming To Work For Them
when did a twitter post count as news?
same thing was posted about MS hiring irrational employees and got approved so quick i blinked and it was gone OT: i don't see a problem offering a job to someone who has the talent to bring fresh new ideas to a company portfolio.
Tug o war between Sony and MS for the Irrational devs. I just hope it ends soon and those talented devs find work again.
Can we just say everyone is approaching ex-irrational employees? lol
Wonder if Amazon will soon post something up about trying to get Ex-iirational employee to work for them. Look like Amazon may be heading into the gaming business.
I can see it now: buy an irrational games developer. 1 dev 20,000. Two devs 35,000. 5 devs 100,000.
If it's posted from an industry professional, N4G allows it to be submitted as news.
It's not news, its in the rumour format (with the slider under headline band). N4G is a source for News AND Rumours.
@angeljuice But its News4Gamers not NewsandRumors4gamers haha eitherway I agree.
@Monolith Actually, when you google N4G you get this - "N4G: Hottest Game News & Rumors"
Have changed it anyway! I am sure SSM would be an attractive proposition for a lot of these guys as Sony games tend to focus on story telling. Imagine how some of these ex irrational staff could help with The Order or SSM new IP.
lol http://n4g.com/news/1459441... same title big deffrince i hope both get what they want
I titled it the same deliberately.
Sony and ms hustling to employ these guys,they r that good. Would be good 2 see more games from them
The good thing here is that those employes that got layed off are going to get back on there feet in no time. Sony or MS, it doesnt matter as long as these hardworking folks get another opportunity.
Good to see both companies wanting these guys just hope their talent isn't wasted. Hope this story doesn't turn into a fanboy frenzy
If I was one of these guys do I see my self working for a big studio who probs wants me to work on another god of war. Or do I wanna try xbox who is dying for people to come work for them and more likely to give me my own project
I think it would be the other way around. Look what happened to Rare after MS bought them. They have been forced to create games they dont even want to create. Atleast Sony would give them, "Freedom" to use their talents in what they want to create.
Cuz Microsoft is just so well known for their hands off approach, while Sony is notorious for stifling creativity.
Sony will ask many of them if they would consider living in southern Cal. When 90% of them say "no", the amount remaining might get interviews. Those will be the young, inexperienced, lost-cost single engineers and artists. Many of them will not make the cut for Sony studios like ND. The veteran devs, who would have a serious chance at places like ND, will likely not leave Boston, or if so, they won't go much further than Montreal.
What A Load Sh*t
Split them into two, half and half. While ken sees the production of both sony's and ms's. Simples
Well if I was a developer and got the opportunity to choose to work with Sony or Microsoft, I would go with Sony all the way.
The Irrational guys strike me as the creative types. Considering that, then there's only one company that's rationally the best fit for them.
Yep Sony already knew (Six Paths Madara ) Just planning everything out like a boss!
Go with the sinking ship Microsoft who don't allow the creative freedom that the market leader Sony does. Seems like a no brainer. But relocation and financial benefits also come in to play so who knows.
