Harmonix's Drake joins PlayStation

Is now director of portfolio strategy with Sony

Harmonix Music Systems' former director of publishing and PR John Drake is now director of portfolio strategy at SCEA's PlayStation division.

He tweeted the news today, and GamesIndustry.biz has contacted both Drake and SCEA for more information about the appointment and will update this story as it develops.

Drake joined Harmonix in June 2007 and in his time there oversaw titles like Dance Central and the extensive Rock Band franchise. Four weeks ago he published his farewell letter to Harmonix on his blog, and made clear he was looking for a new role in games.

"If you know of anyone who needs a seasoned publishing person, versed in the dark arts of Corporate Strategy, Public and Media Relations, Community Development, Marketing and Product Management, and 'Other Salesy Sounding Things,' hit me up."
