Paulina Bozek Quits Sony, Joins Atari

Iconic SingStar boss Paulina Bozek has quit her position at Sony to go join Atari with other ex-Sony employee Phil Harrison. Bozek is now development director of a new online game studio at the firm and commented:
“I am very excited to be joining Atari at this pivotal time for both the company and the industry."

“There is a huge opportunity as gaming platforms become more ubiquitous, more connected and attract more mainstream audiences. Atari has a great vision for the future and I can’t wait to start realising that vision in new products and services.”
Yeah it's a pivotal time alright, will Atari survive that is... Naturally the man with seemingly fantastic pulling power Phil Harrison is also pleased:
“This is a significant step in expanding Atari’s online game development capability."

“Paulina is one of the industry’s most respected creative leaders with an outstanding track-record of commercial and creative success and I’m delighted that she will bring her unique vision, consumer insight and proven ability for creating amazing entertainment experiences to Atari.”
