Veteran Programer leaves Nintendo for Microsoft

Nintendo Xover
Employee of Nintendo for 11 years Colin Reed, technical lead for Metroid Prime: Hunters and system programmer for Pikmin, has left Nintendo for Microsoft. He will be jumping in with the developers of Turn 10.

Turn 10 is responsible for the development of the driving simulator Forza Motorsports.

Though this interesting turn of events (pardon the pun) seems strikingly familiar to the recent loss of talent at Retro Studios, there is nothing to link the two together. From what has been heard, Turn 10 and Nintendo seem to be on good terms with one another.

Though Nintendo might should take more measures to keep such programmers in their own employment, the video game industry, Nintendo in particular, is doing well at the moment.
