Viewpoints that are a little alien to most of us here at TheSixthAxis – we don’t deal with SCEA’s PR department at all.
It’s perhaps worth noting that at least one journalist on Twitter that would be more familiar with SCEA was discussing the comments with some agreement.
Powers says that more than half of the PR team was laid off recently (he was part of that department) and that three titles in particular – LBP Karting, Sports Champions 2 and Wonderbook have “no PR support”. “Worst part [is],” he adds, “the PR department was already under-staffed. I feel sorry for those that remain there, because their workload just doubled.”
“Sony in general is serving too many masters,” he says. “Each company should operate autonomously. PlayStation shouldn’t suffer [because] TVs are overpriced.”
It looks like most of the tweets were removed, Will saying he’s just genuinely unhappy about “a brand he grew up with” and that “there’s no anger or resentment, just genuine concern.”
