From IGN: "Last month IGN learned Nintendo of America (NOA) is moving its sales and marketing departments to New York and San Francisco. Employees were apparently given an ultimatum to either make the move or accept a severance package. Today sources close to IGN tell us that several key executives within the company have opted for the latter option. Senior Director of Public Relations Beth Llewelyn, Vice President of Marking and Corporate Affairs Perrin Kaplan, and Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications George Harrison will all be leaving Nintendo of America in the near future. The exact date of their departures is unknown and a little event called E3 is coming up next month. Harrison and Kaplan have been with the company since 1992, and Llewelyn was hired in 1996. They leave behind President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime, perhaps the only well-known executive left at NOA."
