    After 15 years in the biz, I'd retire too. Fanboys don't try and spin this in some ridiculous and unrelated way.

    Still, with the PS3 doing well and the fact that Blu-Ray just won the wars, why would he bow out now? Unless they bought him out because they wanted a regime change. Either way, the guy did good things.

    The guy's been around since the first PS. Has trillions of $$. Now that the PS3 is in a winning state, its a perfect time to go.

    let's hold on a second...looks like Sony and Phil weren't seeing eye to eye on a few things after all:

    Not but a few days after some decided anti-Sony Japan commentary by a very frustrated Phil Harrison, the Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President is out, with his role to be assumed by the monolithic Kaz Hirai. Phil recently expressed his frustration for SCE Japan's resistance to online and social gaming, which, as it turns out, is exactly where Sony needed to be like five years ago. From the sound of things, Phil's departure is a little unceremonious (and, dare we say, sanctimonious?), but who's to say what really went down behind closed doors?

    "Word is abuzz, though, that Harrison will instead be joining former EA executive David Gardner in heading Atari."
    This would be a stupid move for him. Atari died when their machines did. Stop reviving it!

    Also, that's a giant SONY logo you got there.
