“We’re certainly not planning to cut back in personnel at all. Half of our personnel are in the development of the games, that’s an investment. We’re not scaling down at all,”

“To my knowledge, no one is cutting back on the R&D side of the projects we’re working on now. Sony live and die on the innovative projects they bring out.
