Its my favourite crazy uncle.

Mr_Nuts1992d ago

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.

majiebeast1992d ago

He has been in the industry for 27 years i would not call him a suit per say.

Mr_Nuts1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

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...

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 can you say that's fanboyism when it's what happened

JC_Denton1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

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.

Thomper1992d ago

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!!

mewhy321992d ago

Well the xbone's future looks pretty bleak. However, the PS4's future is bright!!!

MikeMyers1991d ago


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.

YNWA961991d ago

@ 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....

ThanatosDMC1991d ago

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.

Dee_911991d ago (Edited 1991d ago )

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.

Crazyglues1991d ago (Edited 1991d ago )

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

dendenmooshi1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

The program looks a little raw, but it definitely can improve and has great potential.

Bimkoblerutso1991d ago (Edited 1991d ago )

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.

Dee_911991d ago (Edited 1991d ago )

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.

abzdine1991d ago

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

RedHawkX1991d ago

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.

bujasem_891991d ago

when did naughty dog drop the mic?? I need to see this

chrismichaels041991d ago

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.

SonicRush151992d ago

Just finished watching. Had a smile on my face the entire time Jack was there lol

LOL_WUT1991d ago

Same here sad I couldn't say the same about the intro with all those awkward jokes.;)

Godz Kastro1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

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.

majiebeast1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

Thats not fact thats opinion, i think you need to look up the definition of the word "fact".

Transporter471992d ago

@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.

WeAreLegion1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

Seriously?!? So, you don't want Killzone, inFamous, Driveclub, Warframe, Planetside 2, Outlast, The Order: 1886, or any of the others?

MariaHelFutura1992d ago

Fact: You have no idea what a fact is.

abzdine1992d ago

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.

Zechs341992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

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.

S2Killinit1992d ago

dont forget MS has a tendency to come out the gate strong and then slowly phase out core gaming for casuals/kinect and applications. (kind of like 360, except this time, kinect is bundled in) Besides, didn't you like any of the PS games? I know they showed most of them before E3, thus, the lack of focus on them at the conference, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. They had, Infamous: SS, Killzone (which its new direction), The Order (haven't seen much yet), all the indies, and the better Dentiny experience (extra content). Besides, Sony's 1st party studios is a juggernaut of gaming experiences that you simply wont get anywhere else. I would say, take a second look at PS4. If you give em a chance maybe you will like what you find.

SpideySpeakz1992d ago

Yeah, that is a matter of opinion.

karl1992d ago

launch lineup? dude u got it all wrong

thats the exclusive games list for the entire generation of the xboxone...

u really thought MS was going to invest in more games once u bought the system? LMAO

TXIDarkAvenger1991d ago

Its funny because he's right. Sony didn't show any games, they won because of MS stupid DRM rules and they used that to their advantage. MS announced way more games than Sony.

INB4 Sony fanboys talk about indie games.

MetalProxy1991d ago

"Sony didn't show any games" FFS you xbox guys need to try harder or you will FAIL every time! I sure do miss the xbox street gang. They at least to a certain extent made sense. They made you think, you make me wonder why you even bother.
Anywho that was a nice interview at ign.

TXIDarkAvenger1991d ago

Not a fanboy of any console, its just plain obvious.

MS E3 would have won if they didn't have the DRM bullshit, kinect bundled, and a $100 price greater than PS4. All MS needed was more games and they did that but now they screwed themselves over.

I went to see it live. Great show and he was very down to earth with everyone there. Totally got to hold the PS4 controller and get a picture with him too!
Giving everyone a free year of PS+ and $10 on PSN was so incredibly awesome.
