Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Report Phil Harrison to join Microsoft as head of European Games Studios

VG247

Sources close to GI.biz have told the site Phil Harrison, former of Sony and Atari executive, is joining Microsoft as head of its European Games Studios.

 

The site understands Microsoft will confirm the appointment later today.

Harrison will take over the position vacated by Peter Molyneux, who announced his departure for 22 Cans during GDC last week.

A partner at London Venture Partners for the last two years, Harrison was involved with games investment after tenures at both Atari and Sony.

Harrison was responsible for overseeing 13 of Sony's first-party studios around the world, and was synonymous with big PlayStation 3 announcements at conferences. He unveiled PlayStation Home and LittleBigPlanet to the world at GDC in early 2007, for instance.

LOL. Too funny.

Cue steady stream of Sony fanboys saying "We never liked him anyway" and "He was bad for Sony!"



Can't we all just get along and play our games in peace?

I never liked him anyway

Oh nooooo. I remember back in 2006 all PS3 fans wanted to have his babies. This "should" be a 360 victory here.

"We stole a PS3 exclusive......executive :P"

But I never thought he did any good for Sony. And offcourse ps3 fans will immediately forget how much they loved him and claim its no big deal.

System defining games (over 70 on metacritic) not on the other. IMO these are the system sellers that matter. No amount of PS4 selling can take this away.

2013: Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct > Killzone Shadowfall

2014: Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Forza Horizon 2, Master Chief Collection > Infamous SF, Drive Club, Little Big Planet 3, Last of Us (IMO lacking in content compared to MCC).

Priceless....

I don't like the fella... but whenever I said so the Sony fans defended him to the hilt.

How times change.


I'm not really here!
