    Rare veteran George Andreas leaves Microsoft for Sony

    Rare veteran George Andreas leaves Microsoft for Sony

    New creative director at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

    By Wesley Yin-Poole Published Monday, 28 January 2013



    Rare veteran George Andreas has left Microsoft to join Sony.
    Andreas, who played a key role in the development of the Kinect hardware, Kinect Sports 1 and Kinect Sports: Season 2 as well as Xbox 360 launch games Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero, joined Sony this month as creative director of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, working out of SCEE's London office.

    During his 16 years at Rare he worked on most of the legendary studio's games, including various Banjo titles, Viva Pinata and, going back to Rare's Nintendo years, Donkey Kong 64, GoldenEye and Killer Instinct Gold.

    lol, you are mate sorry

    But he has worked on so excellent titles... So his knowledge with MS will be carried to SONY and the outcome will be something to keep an eye on for the future

    I really wish Rare has never been bought by Microsoft but don't mind working around the industry. Really miss these guys working with Nintendo.

    So he's working at London Studio, which means he'll only be working on casual games.

    Look into that man's eyes. In it you will see nothing but loss, sadness, and despair...

    They should make him work on Last Guardian.

    Sony's Playstation division always provides superior gaming compared to their competition. A wise choice to work with them instead.
    Lets see who falls for this.

    The man has a good background so I'm sure he'll be accepted anywhere in the industry.
