I'm going to be interviewing David Reeves tomorrow morning - it's his last day as president of SCEE! We get ample opportunity to talk to Sony about the current state of things (and have done recently, as you'll see soon), but this seems like a chance to ask a veteran of the entire European PlayStation 1-3 cycle *anything* that comes to mind about that era. I've got quite a few questions in mind, but I'd be delighted to throw in a few from you guys. If you have a question, post it here and I'll try to use it.
Since this is the forum, I'd also like to add for the record that I've always enjoyed interviewing and speaking to David. He has a penchant for elaborate metaphor, but he is also the most straight-talking console executive I've met, not even afraid of contradicting the US or Japanese line to speak the truth, and I will really miss him once he's gone. Whatever the business side of it - and I think it's closer than people acknowledge - his successor Andrew House has big shoes to fill on the publicity front, I believe.
And while, this being the internet, I know we'll get some knocks and comedy, if any of you wants to wish David farewell, I'll relay that too. Sony has always supported and devoured Eurogamer content - sometimes quietly, compared to Microsoft - and David does himself. I know that he would be interested in your feedback. Perhaps he'll be lured back into something games-related despite his retirement. After all, he can't play Lair forever, innit.
