- SCEA/989 Consolidation
- As read from: Gamasutra...
"In preparation for the upcoming Playstation 2 launch, Sony Computer Entertainment of America is making moves to consolidate it operations. SCEA will merge spin off developer and publisher 989 Studios into Sony Computer Entertainment America. Kelly Flock is due to step down as 989's president on April 1, and leadership of the studio will fall to SCEA's management team with Kazuo Hirai as president and CEO of the entire North American operation. In addition, Shuhei Yoshida will join the merged organization as vice president of product development."
...maybe this means we'll start seeing imaginative titles coming out of 989 Studios again.
