God I hated him so much. I loathed him with white hot intensity of a thousand burning suns.
Because he was a personable, level headed, forward thinking, approachable Vice-President of a company you dislike?
Keep the fan boy shit to a minimum. He's just a guy doing a job for fucks sake, it's not like he pissed in your Cheerios.
Sony are going to have an incredibly hard time replacing him.
Thats too bad. From what I saw of him at the Sony keynotes, I enjoyed watching him as much as I enjoy watching Reggie.
A nicely written article is here http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=93413
Indeed, and everything that you (NGW) said can be applied moreso to Reggie, who is everything you described and more. I mean the guy hardly talks about what Nintendo is doing to make you happy, he tends to more rally the fanboys into being happy that they support Nintendo.
I will miss Phil. I really liked his presentations. He presented his shit straight and had a pleasant demeanor.
I don't know what the guy's name is who replaced Frieze (sp) on MS's side, but he also seems like a cool guy. Doesn't blow his own horn too much.
edit: Doh, he's the guy that just left for EA (Peter Moore). Well he was a good spokesperson for MS.
Great Article, BTW.
Man, this sucks.
Now who's gonna be the level-headed, sensible, realistic guy at Sony?
certainly not Kaz Hirai or Jack Tretton.
Giant enemy crabs!
I don't really care for Reggie or Peter either actually >_>
Also, what did I say other than that I (rather strongly) dislike him? Nothing.
I've read enough from him, seen enough of him at conferences. I know he is/was just doing his job, doesn't mean I have to like him for it.
Personal bias has nothing to do with it. I don't care for Sony, true. But I also don't care much for Microsoft, and I have said many times that Nintendo has issues...many of which were remedied when the N64 was..essentially, a failure (at least compared to the PS), but they have all new ones now (particularly them catering more towards non-gamers and casual gamers).
WHY DO YOU FEEL THIS WAY?
That was the question.
Also, he is still alive, so you can still loathe him.
I happen to have, on good authority, information that proves, Phil Harrison does in fact, piss in peoples Cherios. It's true.
I dug Phil. Seemed like a cool guy.
I'm curious what, if any, impact this will have on Home? I believe that was his baby.
Actually, Phil pissed in Mario's cheerios, that's why NGW hates him.
You can't save a princess on that stuff!
He certainly championed it but I don't think it will have significant impact for a while, it's way too far along for it to.
NGW hated him for having a strong anti-furry bias and blocked many possible "furry picnic party" titles from being released.
What about Ratchet and Clank?
Remember, he said many, not all, we all know, the furry sells.
Sad to see Phil go, but it seems everyone at the PS division, who's been there for a considerable amount of time, is leaving.
Requesting an explanation for fanboy feelings? Not going to happen. Don't even bother trying to explain how the man still exists to be hated, if there was an actual reason to hate the man in the first place.
If anything, Reggie phils-whatever from Nintendo is the charismatic fanboy fury generating guy that reminds me of 2 people, Steve Jobs, and Adolf Hitler. He gets people to like what they do for the sake of liking it, whether or not they actually like doing it. It's "cool".
No, I am not accusing the guy who runs Nintendo and Steve Jobs with being a mass murdering genocidal maniac. I figured I might as well clarify that before someone fails to properly read the sentence and flips out.
Separate names with a comma.
