Listen: Shawn Layden, Head Of PlayStation's Game Studios, Departs
"Hot off the at playstation twitter account take Shawn layden former worldwide studios chairman has departed Sony Interactive Entertainment on later Gaal Wash right that article real quick nicer than ninety percent of the replies to that tweet wow really mad about censoring them right into games. Take even okay. Let's fucking yeah okay. It's hard to remember that way to get the message out there. That's that's shorter. Make him take notice. The Planet's gone that that first line made me think it was going to take it morbid turn yeah it is with great emotion that we announced the worldwide studios Chairman Shawn Layden. We'll be departing SL is visionary leadership will be greatly missed. We wish him success in future endeavors say no. They don't say which I'm deeply grateful for his years of service service he wrote that feels like kind of abrupt for somebody at that level. I don't know if it was real. Good through really was really. was you got an offer. Maybe we'll see there's some other departures oh I didn't see that this morning i saw the the some Japanese region head also out interesting I don't know what to make of that. If I understood correctly looking into this I forgot that so there was that reorder the Jim Ryan right at the top of playstation and my understanding is that sort of the regional presidents residents of the read the role of regional sort of overseer eliminated as part of that reward yeah it was like Laden's old role changed into something else but even when Laden took it on it was different than what Trenton had right like whatever the sort of Jack threaten role is does exist the same way and so yeah. Maybe it's just a case of well. Jim Ryan got the chair. You're not getting that spot so if you want to move forward in your career go somewhere else. Also Jim Ryan in that spot. I don't know I don't know man handles crashes room like Champ buccaneers man yeah it's. I don't know if a lot of people over the last handful of years it's right now is like a particularly feel like good times. You wanted to get out because you know you've got the new conflict coming there and it's kind of like the end of an era in some ways it's like are you signing up for another generation of this shit or go do something else. There's that's that's a good point if if there's a time to to make moves like this is the time like they are a you know a if not the platform leader arguably like this switch apparently selling faster than the PS four right right at that time but the PS four obviously has the biggest number by far like I personally think their first party output is better than it has been probably ever like the last three three highly acclaimed doing very well only first party studios are putting out some hot shit like it's pretty impressive"
