Successful Penn High School alum returns to alma mater

Many young boys dream of the opportunity to play video games for a living and get paid for it, including one 1986 Penn High School graduate.

Richard Marks is the Project Manager for Sony Computer Entertainment.

He spoke to Penn teachers and administrators Monday morning about the role they play for inventors and scientists of tomorrow.

Marks worked on creating the Eye Toy, which is part of the Sony Playstation 2.

Marks went to college at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University. He said his parents owned a video game store when he was in high school and he has “always been connected to video games.”

More than 10 million Eye Toys have been sold.

According to Marks, his next project is developing new demos for the Playstation 3.
