David Jaffe leaves Sony - starts new Sony exclusive venture
One of the more colourful characters in the development world announced today that after 14 years he is moving on from "the mothership" - as he calls it - and is going it alone.
Yes - today is David Jaffe's last day at Sony. But this isn't the end - think of it as a new beginning. In 'God of War' terms, he's kind of going from Omega back to Alpha to start all over again.
You see, David Jaffe and Scott Campbell have set up a new third-party development company called EAT SLEEP PLAY.
As he explains on his own blog, whilst we won't see any new IP until 2008 they will be working on a port of Twisted Metal: Head On, taking it from the PSP to the PS2.
EAT SLEEP PLAY have a three-title deal to produce output for Playstation platforms only.
Personally, I think David is a bit of a star. He always speaks his mind (which I like) and comes up with interesting and innovative ideas in between drinking sessions! I'm looking forward to seeing what they can do with the PS3 over the course of the next year or so.
