After spending 10 months with us running the PlayStation.Blog and providing you with your daily gaming news, I would like to say thank you and farewell to Jem Alexander, who has moved on from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. We will continue to keep you updated with as much content and breaking news as usual. Join me in wishing Jem all the best for his future endeavours. And here’s a few words from Jem for you…
Well guys, it’s been an amazing ride, but my time at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has now come to an end. Since I started here last year — the week before gamescom, where we announced the PS3 Slim, no less — it’s been my absolute pleasure to bring you the latest news from within the company, as well as from our third party partners. Since then we’ve announced and released some amazing games.
I truly appreciate the time you take out of your busy days to read the site, so as editor of the PlayStation.Blog I wanted every post to be about the games that you would want to play. Thankfully our first party line-up has been absolutely stellar, with Uncharted 2 sitting firmly among my top three games of all time, so we’ve had as many Heavy Rain, Modnation Racers, God of War III, Gran Turismo 5, Move and Uncharted 2 posts as our team could muster. Mostly because I’m as interested in hearing about them as I know you are — and don’t you worry, there are plenty more great first party titles coming that have yet to be announced.
As many of you know I was a blogger at Joystiq before I came here. I love games (I think that’s obvious), and I love talking, reading and writing about them. Although I’m moving on from the PlayStation.Blog, I won’t be moving on from that interest and I’m sure you’ll see me around.
As a Sony loyalist since the days of the original PlayStation, it’s been a pleasure and an honour working at Sony Computer Entertainment. From what I’ve seen, we Sony fans have a lot to look forward to over the next year or so and I’ve no doubt that the PlayStation.Blog will continue to be the number one place to hear each new announcement as it happens.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to play an obscene amount of ModNation Racers.
Wishing you all the best,
