An ex-Sony PR representative has publicly slammed his former company after recent layoffs that left him, and the majority of his colleagues, out of a job last week.
Will Powers, best known as the winner of season 1 of The Tester – Sony’s reality show, was so enraged that he took to Twitter to voice exactly what he thought of his former company’s decision with some rather harsh words.
“You have to wonder what the hell PlayStation was thinking laying off more than half of their software PR team going into the holiday season,” Powers wrote. “In typical fashion they’re sending titles out to die, because they have no PR support — Little Big Planet Karting, Sports Champions 2, Wonderbook.”
“Worst part is, the PR department was already under-staffed. I feel sorry for those that remain there, because their workload just doubled. That being said, you have to question the priorities of the company as a whole – What the point of AdHoc multiplayer when no one has a Vita?”
In an earlier exchange, Powers wrote that “Sony’s priorities aren’t what they used to be. They’ve definitely lost touch with their audience.”

Maybe he should give his brother Austin a call for a new job.
