Phil Harrison to Atari…why?

Phil Harrison, after spending 15 years with Sony, is leaving the company to accept a position as President at Infogrames/Atari. With Atari’s recent troubles, it seems weird that Phil would be joining up with them, especially since the PSP and PS3 are really picking up momentum right now. Of the move, Phil said, “This is the perfect time to join Infogrames and help shape the future of Atari – one of the industry’s legendary brands. As the game business moves rapidly online I believe we have an outstanding opportunity to create amazing network game and community experiences for players the world over. I am especially excited to be working on this challenge together with David, one of the most respected leaders and successful executives in our industry.”

Just a year ago Phil Harrison was showing us “Gaming 2.0″ with Home, LittleBigPlanet, and the future of the PS3 and PSP at GDC 2007. While I’m sure that Home and LBP are in good hands, it’s strange seeing the guy that championed the projects more than anybody else walk away before their official release.

Good luck, Phil. I’d love nothing more than to see you revitalize the Atari name. I just don’t fully understand the jump from a highly stable job environment to such a shaky one. Maybe the guy likes a challenge, huh?
