In an unexpected move, SCEA publicity chief Molly Smith has resigned her post. Smith, who has managed SCEA's formidable PR machine for a decade, left the company yesterday.
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.
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.
The callapse has already begun. I see Krazy Ken going next. LOL
please try selling consoles then we can argue...
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?!?!?!"
It's not looking too good. Public relations can be very stressful. Especially when your co-workers don’t say anything or make decisions that the public wants to hear. If I were in her shoes I would have left too. I bet her next job will be some thing simple like dumping PS3’s in landfills. LOL Just kidding i hoope Sony dose well ;^|
DIDN'T ANOTHER EMPLOYEE FROM SONY LEAVE ALSO FOR SAYING THAT HE PREFERS THE XBOX 360 OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT?? I THOUGHT THAT HAPPENED A FEW MONTHS AGO.
An employee got fired in 2005 after E3 for bloging that the trailers (kilzone 2) there were CGI when Sony stated that they were not. He also said that Nothing he had worked on looked any better that any thing he had seen on the 360. So yeah they fired his @ss. I will give you a link to his offical blog later
Shut up and give it a rest, you xbox girls are such a bunch of idiots. Your so good at trying to make something out of nothing, Just like your precious 360. A nothing of a game system. Wait 6 months and youll learn what a system is supposed to be, The PS3.
Your so good at trying to make something out of nothing, Just like your precious PS3. A nothing of a game system. lol
She is telling the truth man. PS3 has been nothing but hype and specs. for all most 2 years. And in Nov. 2006 then you will eat allot crow because if it sucks on paper it will suck in real life. "You kids and your paper console." And I will say it again any one in here shoes with a brain would have quit too. As PR rep. for Sony she has probably made millions off of us so she is O.K. She may have even had a severance contract and decided to take that before Sony ate it up on Blue Ray and paying media out lets to slam the 360 so It would create these drones to get on line and fight there war for them. Just take the article for what it is. The main connection to the public for Sony since PS1 has QUIT and it dose not look like a good sign.
This is the link I was trying to post on #7 read it. It is a GOOD STORY. http://www.ps3portal.com/ps...
