Everyone's favourite corporate smoothie, Phil "Mostly Hairless" Harrison, has now officially left Microsoft - and announced what he'll be doing next. After stints masterminding various hardware launches at both Sony and Microsoft, pouting, pretty-mouthed Phil has formed his own company - Alloy Platform Industries.
According to Gamesindustry.biz, Harrison says the following things: "Investing and investigating some new technology spaces, which if we are lucky and smart, will hopefully be catching that next wave. We're in stealth mode at the moment, we'll stay in stealth mode for a while. It's very exciting, and something I've been planning for a little over a year, in full consultation and collaboration with Microsoft, specifically with Phil Spencer. I'm taking a plunge into the start-up pool."
In short: whatever Alloy Platform Industries is doing, it's apparently going to be doing it in partnership with Harrison's former employer. Interpret that as you will.
