Marks, who worked as a senior researcher on PlayStation VR, PlayStation Move, and headed by Sonys Magic Lab, will work for Google's Advanced Technology and Projects Group (ATAP).
"ATAP is at the intersection of science and application where our goal is to solve significant problems and close the gap between what and what," said Google to VentureBeat. "We're very excited that Richard will be in the senior team and look forward to his contribution."
Marks worked on various projects during his time at Sony, and helped develop the PlayStation VR headset, the PlayStation Eye camera and the Move controller.
The appointment of Marks may be part of Google's initiative to enter the gaming industry. The rumors of Yeti, the Google Play Streaming Service Code, have been around since February. Apparently, Yeti is scheduled to be a Google Chromecast service, or maybe a Google game console is in the work. Google has also had meetings with various game developers during the E3 201
Marks is just a gaming industry veteran employed by Google. The conglomerate also hired Phil Harrison, former Xbox and PlayStation, in January. Harrison has allegedly invested in expanded reality and virtual reality companies, such as The Dream Reality, according to a report from Business Insider.
