Bad idea to hire anyone from Sega. i.e. Sega didn't really do a fantastic job, did they? Unless you assume that the one coming in learned his lessons at Sega or was being oppressed and had his ideas ignored by Sega. You don't want to bring Sega bad habits to Sony, a winning team.

I strongly urge Sony to hire someone from ---> NINTENDO...!!!!
Learn and hire from someone who is currently winning, not from somone who's lost???

I don't think that it is fair to say that it is a bad idea to hire someone from Sega. This guy isn't the one that made the decisions that caused Sega to go into a downhill spiral.

If Sony sees enough in this guy to give him a chance then he must have what they are looking for.
