Wow. It's hit home. Sony will recoup.

Edit: Oh okay. If he left for Zynga then that's good. Better opportunity. But I wonder if it had anything to do with the SOE breach.

i doubt this will affect sony much. people leave companies all the time and there's so much talent in the industry, now the fact that hes a 'Boss' automatically means he left because of the PSN debacle? please..

I doubt that its anything to do with it. hes a develpment manager so his job does not relate to the psn breach in any way really, this site is just going for hits from people who dont underdstand what his job is about.

Be more money.

Zynga made around a billion dollars last year in profit.

He's simply going where the money is currently and probably time to move on 9 to 10 years is almost like a lifetime at a company now.

Most people these days think your crazy if you stay at 1 company for longer than 5 years.

yeah he did i wonder if it had to do with the PSN? or maybe he just wanted to join zynga who knows.

I highly doubt it. Sorting out the problems of the PSN could potentially be your job in Sony.

There's no way they'd tell a 3D modeller to fix the PSN, for example. They'd ask those in the area of expertise.

He wouldn't leave for the PSN incident, he'd be working double shifts.
