PALGN recently had the opportunity to interview Warren Leigh, the Producer of Sega Superstars Tennis and Virtua Tennis 3, and ask him about the upcoming Beijing 2008 videogame. In the interview, Leigh has discussed a range of topics including Beijing 2008's customisation options, if there will be any unlockable content, and what's changed from previous Olympic videogames.
PALGN: To start off, can you introduce yourself and tell a little about your role with Beijing 2008?
Warren Leigh: Hi, I'm Warren Leigh, and I started working in the industry back in '99, joining SEGA in '04 to work on Xbox OutRun 2 which was my 1st SEGA produced title.
I then spent the next 2 years working on the Football Manager franchise with Sports Interactive.
In more recent years I was the Producer for Virtua Tennis 3, SEGA Superstars Tennis and now Beijing 2008. It's been a very difficult few years for me juggling the production on so many high profile titles, but I've worked with some of the best development teams from around the world, and enjoy making great games.
I was a SEGA fanboy back in the days and feel I've now truly found my home."
