SCEE to cut 160 jobs in staff shake-up

MCV can confirm that an internal briefing of SCEE staff has taken place outlining staff cuts at the platform holder. The story first broke last night, when Nick Sharples, director of corporate communications at SCEE, told GameDaily.biz:

"We have informed our staff that we are considering proposals that may result in a number of redundancies across the SCEE Group in Europe. Until those consultations are complete we will not know how many redundancies may be needed. We will not be providing any additional information on this process or making further announcements at the conclusion of the process.

"The reason for the proposals is that, although SCEE has successfully faced a number of challenges throughout its history to become a leader of the videogame industry, our industry is in the middle of a period of transition where some of the fundamentals of our business are changing. Chief amongst these is that we are entering a future of increasingly networked and converged entertainment. In order to maintain our leading position in the market we sometimes have to make difficult business decisions."

There is no official statement from SCEE at this time, but more details are expected to surface in the next few days.
