Sony gaming head resigns

The leader of Sony's gaming software division is resigning, the company has announced. President Phil Harrison will officially end his term with Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide (SCEW) on February 29th, and will be replaced by Kazuo Hirai, the chief of Sony's overall gaming division, Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE). After 15 years Harrison is said to be pursuing new opportunities in the game industry, although no particular direction has been suggested, Reuters notes.

Harrison most recently helped oversee one of the most controversial platforms in Sony history, the PlayStation 3. Among the difficulties the system has experienced has been attracting original games -- while a number of titles are available for the PS3, many of them are also available for Microsoft's Xbox 360, or even less powerful consoles such as the PlayStation 2 or Nintendo Wii. Harrison and the rest of SCEW have attempted a number of software strategies to improve the PS3's allure, such as the forthcoming PlayStation Home.
