Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America, made a quick appearance on the PS LiveCast to share his thoughts on E3 so far.
Jack Tretton (and PlayStation as a whole) is awesome.
Tretton, Shu, Kaz... I don't know who to love more
And the English guy with the facial hair.
You could tell he was genuinely happy on stage and not just spouting off a rehearsed gig. I like that guy.
I agree totally.
That night was like watching game 7 of the world series. 2 outs, 3 balls and 2 strikes, bottom of the 9th and Sony hits a home run. Game Over.
And Microsofts pitcher kept hitting fans in the head with the baseball.
"playstation 4 won't impose used game restriction on gamers" *half the crowd stand clap and cheer for 15 secs* Jack: "I guess that's a good thing" *smiling* lmaoo XD
I love this guy!
Trendy .... We all agree. Well said. Bubble up!
I've been hiding since Giant enemy crab and Ken Kutaragi's "Riiidge Racer!!!!". Is it safe to come out now?
I think monday night they made the whole world happy.
Well there might be a little place in Seattle that doesn't feel that way. :)
Delsin Rowe will sort them out lol.
I've always liked Jack Tretton. Ever since he did jazz hands on stage a few years ago i've liked him even more.
have to agree with him. what an amazing feeling.
The Jesus of gamers.
Yeah... I don't buy this. Ps4's good and all, but it's in his best interest as a capitalist to say stuff like this- to cultivate a persona like this.
That's true, a great businessman will style flex
Yea. Who knew that making your audience happy, who will in turn, put money in your pocket, was a silly thing to do?
People can tell when someone is being fake, he seems genuine to me
I see where you're coming from, but just look at his face when he announced all that at the conference. His expression is one that you only get when you're happy to make other people happy. I think it was sincere.
It's USUALLY in a capitalist's best interest to cater to their customers and keep them happy. Indeed, the best capitalists are those that enjoy the impact they have ON their customers.
At least he cares about us gamers! Unlike Microsoft!
Seriously MS and Sony are like the opposite these days, while MS come out with a f*** you to gamers Sony comes out with something like this
The PlayStation brand deserves all this positive buzz. They were pumping out great exclusive games(many which were new IPS) this whole gen. A lot of people on this site stuck with the ps3 through the worst of times and now it looks like the ps4 will be at the top.
williamson speaks the truth.ps3 had a hard fight this generation but loyalty is what help sony and gamers come out on top.2006/2007 n4g was a totally different site then what it is today.
that should be the motto of the world. making people happy.
Yeah, we all know businesses need to make money, but when did that get lumped in with they need to have no compassion for their customers. It's quite interesting to see how the industry is reacting to this. EA for instance is now making pro consumer press releases. It has been an amazing week, and I think may have a real impact on how the industry conducts itself.
$399 is a nice price. I was expecting $500 but now I can spend sum more money on their killer lineup instead. From PS1 to PS4, Sony for life.
PS Plus beckons if you haven't made the plunge already. Great bang for the buck! And who doesn't like a great bang...? Wait...ahh hell...forget it.
Best part for me is I can take the $600 I saved up to get a X1, and now use that to buy more games along for the PS4, with the other $600 I had saved up for that.:)
It has never been a better time to be Jack trettons portmoney.
andi like supporting your company
Jack is the man, I love this guy (no homo). :-)
PS4 Exclusive: Never a better time to be a gamer Jack is the man!
If you put the right bite on the fishing pole, you will get tons of fish.
I love Sony and I love Playstation Jack is a pimp.
A pimp or a shrimp? He is a human larva, man. His Body is only ready for the next E3 stage, if he moves too much, a giant enemy crab will come out of his mouth...
He looks like hes giving everybody a hug in that picture.
ps for life
Now where is Daxter
Probably the most loved American
I love them both equally
he looks like hes saying "come at iz" to microsoft in that picture
The people's champion :D
Love the pic. I have the voice of Jesus from Southpark in my head. Yay, believe unto me and I shall deliver a gaming console unto you, the likes of which the world has never seen. And it shall be good. And all the faithful shall bask in Playstations 4's warm glowing, warming glow.
MS: "best feeling is taking peoples money"
I've always liked Jack, he has such a genuine personality about him, and he not afraid to speak his mind.
He could very well be parting the red sea in that picture.
what I liked about Sony's presentation was that it was alive. By that, I mean Jack Tretton's speech didn't seem scripted, or forced. I know that they Obviously knew exactly what they were going to say, I'm not naiive. But, there was something human about the presentation. I think the fact that they KNEW they had done good by gamers, allowed Sony's representatives to really speak directly to their audience, the fans. Whereas in comparison, I felt that MS representatives were just told to say this, and only this, and act like this is all proof that the elephant in the room doesn't even exist.
