Sony Computer Entertainment America President and CEO Jack Tretton comes to IGN to talk about the next generation of games.
Its my favourite crazy uncle.
I love Uncle Jack...seriously despite being a suit he knows what we want and you can tell that Sony in general learnt from their mistakes. Great interview though, I especially like the part when he talks about how hard they've worked for five years only to see it pay off at the conference with the reception it got.
He has been in the industry for 27 years i would not call him a suit per say.
Well I kind of meant it in a sense where the majority of people in multi million companies like Sony end up not caring about what the company is about because they are suits. However since he has been around for a long time and he's worked his way up to where he is today he knows what it's like down below if you get my drift. Most suits in gaming end up coming from other industries which have nothing to do with games, it seems Jack is the opposite That comment about the evolution about smart phones and tablets and him saying a gamer would choke you is so true lol
best of all uncles...
@Thomper Why is it if we praise something on this site from one company you get called a fanboy. I'm not a fanboy, it's just Sony knows what they are doing. Microsoft doesn't give a crap about us Nintendo don't have a clue what they are doing the majority of the time When a company is having a good run, you give them praise. Back in 2006 I thought Sony had lost the plot. They learnt from their mistakes and helped create a better system and a better company...how can you say that's fanboyism when it's what happened
What makes me like Jack is how natural and humble he always sounds. Microsoft's PR crowd makes me feel like I'm having a product pitched to me by a bunch of robots. Their only real "out there with the consumers" PR guy is Major Nelson, and he's a complete jackass.
Mr nuts.. Nothing wrong with praise, but the weird adoration that this CEO of a multinational conglomerate corporation is getting is just plain freaky!! He's a suit. He doesn't care about you, his sole purpose is to make money for shareholders. He hasn't got to where he is by saying the wrong thing, and he is getting paid to do it. He isn't some demi god who is serving the gaming "community" as an act of charity - get a grip man!!
Well the xbone's future looks pretty bleak. However, the PS4's future is bright!!!
@Mr_Nuts, I agree. I thought it was a very relaxed interview and it's nice seeing people who are the face of big corporations be so down to Earth. He's seen the ups and downs and knows how much work goes into all of this.
@ Thomper... Thanks for the laugh.... Fanboys plus no humour.... Priceless. In unrelated news, shares in the company that make Charmin have gone through the roof....
Jack's tone is always friendlier than all of those Don Mattrick interviews. He doesnt sound hostile nor condescending to the person who's interviewing him.
damn I love how he doesnt beat around the bush.He was about to say a date when he asked the release date lol, he had to think about it Thomper is the result of greedy corps taking advantage of their consumers, cant tell the difference between genuine passion and marketing pr dribble, sad soul.You should know some companies realize theres a partnership with its consumers.Sadly its too few of them, Luckily for us Sony(the playstation at least) are one of them.
Awesome Interview... Jack is the man... You can really tell Sony has really did there homework this time around - you see it in the little things, like not forcing consumers to have a camera - and really trying to get what the gamer really cares about - awesome job and I can't wait to get my PS4.... I just feel like they nailed it this time around, it's not just a great system for consumers, the developers love it too.. (and that can only mean awesome games await us) .____........___... .____||......||.......|___|| ||.........___||............ ||
My goodness, that news comedy part isn't funny. If that's not a laugh-track, I'm not nearly as nerdy as I thought I was; but then again, it explains the girlfriends and the social life I have.
i dislike the journalist he tries to be funny and i dont think it succeeds but Tretton was great and brought some nice answers! Great stuff Jack
The program looks a little raw, but it definitely can improve and has great potential.
Greg Miller has always been annoying. He's annoying during his video reviews, and he's annoying here as he attempts (and fails) to emulate a show that was not good in the first place.
I liked it.Quirky sarcastic awkward jokes are funny to me.If its not you thing its not your thing dont knock him for doing what he's doing.
i am free to say he isn't funny as much as you're free to say that he's funny. that's my opinion respect it if you want others to respect yours
trentton and kaz and cerny rock. microsoft people in the same positions suck and mattick got fired because he sucked so bad and balmer is a freaking disgusting stupid freak. why do you guys support them and xbox. why cant you some of you support the better people and console the ps4. you cant tell me them xbox people even come close to be more down to earth then the sony guys. the MS people arent like us. they are the people who oppress us and i say us because none of you are million aires and billionaires at all. Ms is not humble and they company need to die especially after what they tried to do to gaming with that sneak attack drm crap and such.
Jack is one the best on stage at E3 and if you remeber his first few it was funny. He was very nervous. Cool to see him change over the years.
when did naughty dog drop the mic?? I need to see this
The thing I like about watching Jack Tretton interviews is that the guy always comes off humble, yet intelligent. And he never beats around the bush with his answers and is always direct and to the point. He has a genuine connection to the gaming community. Even if you're a MS or Nintendo fan, you still want to have respect for this guy.
Just finished watching. Had a smile on my face the entire time Jack was there lol
Same here sad I couldn't say the same about the intro with all those awkward jokes.;)
He is the BOSS!
MS handed them E3 on a plate. Sony didnt even show any games that makes me want the system. I watched the entire conference and I liked some of the stuff they showed but on games alone I will get an xbox 1 first and maybe a ps4 later down the road if games im interested in start showing up. Fact! MS has a strong launch line up. I have a full friends list and everyone has been savoring over what they have seen.
Thats not fact thats opinion, i think you need to look up the definition of the word "fact".
@godz kastro Do yourself a favor and look at the X1 and actually look at how many titles are launching with it. Then look at the Ps4 launch lineup, btw don't forget all the Indie games and don't forget all the F2P games then do the Exclusives then follow up by 3rd party games.
Seriously?!? So, you don't want Killzone, inFamous, Driveclub, Warframe, Planetside 2, Outlast, The Order: 1886, or any of the others?
Fact: You have no idea what a fact is.
launch line-up? so far we've only seen CG cinematics! this tells me that only Forza, KI and Ryse will make it to be launch titles.
It's fine to give your opinion, but please, don't come here and say which lineup is better and that is fact because its what you and your friends like. It's ridiculous. OT. Trenton definitely knows what he is talking about, especially compared to tools like Mattrick. Good interview.
