I didn't think it was that bad for Sony?! I am convinced to wait a year ir two post PS3 launch before even considering a purchase.

Sexius Maximus3768d ago

I couldn't agree more. Considering Sony won't have any good games for a couple years anyway. The good games WILL come, but NOT at launch.

It does seem like the rats are jumping ship J/K.

It usually starts at the top and work its way down so look for them too clean house before the dust settles.

Oh for heavens sakes, SHUT UP! No one knows why she left and already here are idiots saying stupid comments. It's really getting old with article writers doing their best to make things sound as bad as possible, People come and go out of businesses all the time. Its NO BIG DEAL. PEOPLE LEAVE WHEN BUSINESS IS GOOD AND BAD OR WHATEVER. People have lives outside their work that make them choose to move on or not. NO ONE KNOWS till she or Sony gives reason. Hey, I know, lets take a wait and see attitude, and do the same for the PS3.

Patrick, you are absolutely right. People do come and go. But you have to admit that the timing is a little iffy on this one. You are about to have one of the biggest launches in console history, and the person in charge of the publicity leaves? A successful launch means tons of well dealt PR, and if the lead is going to leave just a few months before the meat of her job...and you don't find that a little suspicious... Well, I find THAT a little suspicious.

Take a step back from concentrating so hard on the PS3, and you will realize that it is not a good thing in the big picture.

You're a ssj thats better at writing. The person either got fired or she is not happy with what's going on. Just remember that half of what you believe comes from the biggest liers and cheats since Enron.

I'll just paste it here, it was short.

Sony America's PR Mistress Flees

SCEA publicity chief Molly Smith is the first rat doggy-paddling off of Sony's PS3 public relations Titanic.

Having managed Sony America's PR machine for over ten years, it's a bit surprising that she'd leave so suddenly.

But consider this: even the most superhuman PR mind would find themselves in a difficult and stressful situation given how badly Sony is blundering this launch. It doesn't help matters when guys like Phil Harrison seem to be getting kicks out of issuing absurd comments to the press. You can just imagine a bleary-eyed Molly Smith sitting at her desk at 8am, praying the phone won't ring. Then it does; she answers it with a quavering voice. "Huh-huh-huh-hello?" she pitifully asks. Then she leaps to her feet, waving her arms hysterically around her head. "THAT IDIOT SAID WHAT?!?!?!"
