this would be going down at the end of July, now it seems it's finally happened: George Harrison, head of U.S. marketing for Nintendo, is leaving the company, effective at the end of the year. Harrison confirmed the news with Reuters, saying "I have confirmed to all employees that I will be leaving at the end of December and not making the move to California."
Though he stopped short of giving a reason, it was rumored in June that Harrison and other Nintendo VPs would be leaving the company to avoid moving from Washington to Nintendo PR's new homes in San Fransisco and New York. What's still unclear is what Harrison will be doing after he leaves the company, but after heading up marketing for a product that a couple of people have heard of, we doubt he'll have much trouble finding a gig.
