    Is it just me or has the PSN been flooded with crap since this guy left?

    But then again what has he done exactly when he was with Sony?

    Perhaps he can help publish more games for Vita.

    Flood the Vita with trash.

    Just google his name, most of it is hyping shit up and then not delivering. I distinctly remember when he tried to hype a “huge JRPG” and everyone thought it was gonna be FF Type-0 on Vita (he didn’t help things by not denying it)… Then SE announced Type-0 for PS4/Xbone and the salt that followed was amazing.

    I vaguely remember the whole FF Type 0 mess. But ya, he’s pretty much someone that people wont miss much.

    He must have did a crappy job for the Vita to be dead today.

    Whoa, Vita “champion”?

    The guy ignored major releases, acted like he had tons of games in the pipeline, but nothing ever came of it.

    Lets be honest: the guy was always a PR face with no power. It was always obvious he held little influence in decision making.

    So it seems wierd to me people will level all tis blame on him specifically just because he was paid to lie. Kinda cutting at the toes of the problem here and ignoring the real issue entirely by pinning it all on this guy

    It’s that some people (himself included) act like he did have a lot of influence and did do a lot when he didn’t.
