Phil Harrison joins InfoGrames

That’s right kids, after dumping Sony, he goes and joins one of Atari’s main studios. According to the press release, he is going to help make Atari become a “leading online game company”. He will oversee Atari’s studios and internal/external development projects.

“This is the perfect time to join Infogrames and help shape the future of Atari – one of the industry’s legendary brands,” stated Phil. Really now? Was it also the perfect time to leave Sony?

Look how fast he got a new job, in less then a week. From his resignation, it sounded like he was going to take a small break and start working again in maybe a year or two. It’s been 3 days since he left Sony and now he’s going to InfoGrames. Could this be a sign Sony is close to downfall (failing internally) or a sign of hope for Sony to come back into the game market, starting something fresh, and not so crappy (Phil Harrison cursing Atari from it’s already weakened state)?
