• PS3 Hacks , 25.09.2012

    Im sure everyone here has done it, that is ranted on Twitter, i know ive done it quite often, but then im not a well known ex Sony employee and it wont affect my future job prospects, unlike Will Powers, who recently lost his job from the company.

    Will Powers was the first winner of The Tester, went on a multi Tweet rant, he was annoyed at how Sony laid of him and half of his PR team mates, here the rant:

      So what I've been telling the last two years and that there will be a day that more and more people that worked for Sony will rebel because of it's ill-opperation-by-people-that-harm-it-than-protecting-it, looks like it started. You should follow from now on what will happen next, every little thing will be crucial to the PS brand and Sony as a whole. It took slightly shorter than I expected but either way it's inneviatable and Sony's ill-minded-staff should expect it. It's the end of their (Sony's ill-minded-staff) saga. That's gonna be or great or absolutely fatal for Playstation brand. Time will tell.

      Sony probably has their eyes on him now, and if he gives away any info relating to hacking the ps3 he'll get into big trouble

      Plus from the sounds of things hes not from the department that knows that kind of stuff. Would be funny though if he was...and he got back to you

      Didn't it say he was in PR? What could a pblic relations person possibly know about anything technical? Also non-disclosure agreements don't stop because you are laid off. If he has any information he could get heavy fines and even jail time for violating the contract he signed when he was hired.

      so? let him risk fines/jail time if $ony does this to an employee not thinking bout the repercussions of him having loose lips I would do it for sweet revenge if i was in his shoes since they just (Maybe) ruined his life anyways it's not like they can assassinate him (then again i wouldn't put it past them)

      I doubt many of us would dare to break a signed NDA. I'm all for sweet revenge, but not if I have to spend 1 minute in jail, or get fined +$1. If I had nothing to lose, then that would be a different story.

      On another note.... an ex-sony PR employee is, apparently, shocked he and his co-workers were laid off?... ummm they should be thankful they were paid for more than 2 weeks. Actually I'll be fair, more than a Public Relations thing, it's a Marketing thing.

      Funny story, I just noticed that "Kevin Butler" from sony's commercials is doing a firestone commercial playing a Wii. His commercials have been the ONLY entertaining campaign of PS commercials I've ever seen.

      I find those tweets constructive and in no way rude or in breach of some confidentiality agreements Will could have signed.

      On the other hand, hiring people via "The Tester" was a pretty dumb move from Sony. They could probably do as good a job with fewer people who would have the appropriate experience/education in the field.
