SCEE considers cutting its staff by 10%

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) is in the midst of plans to lay off at least 10% of its employees. Nick Sharples, the Director of Corporate Communications at SCEE, confirmed the report to GameDaily Biz in late breaking news today.

Sharples said to GameDaily, "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 underlying reason for the cutbacks? SCEE wants to streamline its operations in order to save money. Sharples explained, "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…The management of the company has concluded that we need to change our structure, streamline and strengthen our business operations – and that our cost base needs to be significantly reduced."
