GamePro's Vicious Sid recently sat down with Sony Computer Entertainment's Jack Tretton at E3 to discuss the PSP, PS3, backward compatibility ...and how he would describe each game console as a meal. Insights galore!
But this guy is right!
for being fanboys, if CEO bash other consoles ?
Lol, it's the media's fault too... they feed into this whole console war thing b/c it attracts readers. Back in the SNES & Genesis days, I just gamed w/o any knowledge of any console wars. In fact, it wasn't until Gamespot that I was made aware that one must choose sides!
Lolipop? Wow, that was a bit*#smack at Nintendo.
Then again the Wii is a cute airhead and the ps3 is a fat chick
"Large in charge".
Looks like the Fat lady is singing.
if you think about it that statement doesnt make any sense, it only makes him look stupid because if the cook is unreliable and he makes eveyrthing thats on the menu then how is he going to make you the best thing on the menu?
that guy is a douche :-p
and honestly, (not that there is anything wrong with it at all) but he has the face of a h0m0sexual. He looks like Elton John's younger brother.
HA HA, what a joke ! I mean if you cant beat 'em, better try to Bullsh!t 'em ! What class & style exhibited by the corporate CEO of the #3 console. Fanboys are all Sony has & will ever have, so better appeal to their delusional mentality. This guy should be a used car salesman ! The Wii is sticking that lollipop right up your a$$ Jack, & M$'s hardware & software sales are running you outta da' kitchen ....
Let's take a brief look at how Sony treats their Tools:
Paying people to advertise their PSP through graffiti, puting programs in music files that make systems at risk of viruses, exploding laptop batteries, claiming CG trailers are gameplay footage, now phasing out the 60gb model & denying it, all their games will be running at 1080p, the console race starts when they say it does, the cell processor, There will be 2 million PS3s at launch, the US launch date, the European launch date, Jack Trentton: The DS is trailing the PSP, ... Sony philosophy: wait for Nintendo to do it and then double it: Analog Stick? Dual Analogs! Rumble? Dual Shock!, Wii-mote ? Six Axis ! ... do I need to go on because this list is ENDLESS.
What is *TRULY* amazing is the blind Fanboyism that follows Sony & believes their crap after they lie to you over & over & over & over. Bottom line is:
SONY PWNS IT'S FANS
The only thing I think of REGARDLESS OF CONSOLE when I hear "old cook" is Ken Kutaragi.
I was wondering when Sony would start talking some sh*t it took them awhile with all the sh*t talking Peter More has been spewing at Sony But pete was right!, right #1.
in that picture? Look at how red his is!
Damn, that was funny!
Hey I kid because I care.
I know one thing...No way in hell it only took him 5 min to get his PS3 hooked up and playing games! All the firmware updates alone take longer than 5 min....so once you throw cables in to mix....well lets just say 5 min is just a tad to short....
im pretty sure he got his day 1, probably before, no updates, just plug and play, its a little different now
before all the firmware updates were out :) , just listen and believe in ps3 for 10 years :D
hahahaha moore leaves. harrisons doin raymond, what next.
vacationing on the sun. LOL
360: Lemon or some other sour fruit
Wii: A Vegetable
PS3: A big ole' juicy steak
PS3 - a raw steak could be pretty good, but not done yet..(No Games)
360 - Well Done steak, problem is sometimes it too well done (overheating) But, when it's cooked just right, nothing can beat it!
Wii - McDonalds happy meal with and extra large order of fries. The kids love the happy meal, while the parents chomp on the extra fries.
i like how you said that when the 360 is cooked right, "nothing can beat it", that was funny. But McDonald outsells any steak joint on the planet.
which is why uxo22 is right lol
Makes perfect sense to me.
"unreliable cook".....HAHHAHHAHAHHAHH AHAHAHHAHHA
Fuking L super O L...ahahhahahahahaha
Thats one happy dude, give him a beard and he would look like santa =)
hahaha i know the 360 has been called alot of things but this one is simply the best one hahaha unreliable cook
Jack... He's a comedian. THAT guy is the DUDE'
I love PS3, but i think jacks overdoing this, 360, an unreliable cook? sure it may be a great cook, and its unreliable, but there are, however alot of 360s that are working fine, though i despise 360, i dont like it when people base things off stereotype, etc. PS3 can also cook things, hell my cell processor makes a great toaster!
The Wii is more like ramen, you eat it like crazy for awhile, then you get bored of it, and it sells like crazy and its cheap
PS3 is like a medium well steak, lots of features(lots of cooking) but its lost some juice(exclusives)
360 is like... a grape, if its on for too long(being squeezed for too long) it'll eventually pop, and you have to get a new one :(
Actually the unreliable cook comment hits the nail on the head. Have a look here http://www.fastsilicon.com/...
I must've overread that article... lmao! Turns out Jack was right afterall...
What good is a reliable Cook when the food is unreliable and risky to eat, but i'm sure the game plan will work out for Tretten with games and a real price cut.
well just as long as i get my food i'm ok... now where's that complimentary bread?!
Please make Tretton shut up. That is all.
Sony has some big challenges of its own, I would focus more on that if I were him, instead of making silly remarks about your competition.
Do you got hd-dvd?
He's always pissed, eventhough i like sony they need to show US gamers it in reality and instead just ''talking''.
Ah, it's just a joke more or less. He had to fire back at some point =p
"I think the PS3 is the Surf 'n Turf. You want the lobster and steak and you're going to give yourself the treat of getting the best thing on the menu. The PS2 is your favorite burger restaurant -- you go there for comfort food and it's just always good and is a good value.
[As for the other two consoles], one [Wii] is a lollipop, and I'm too old for lollipops. The other one [Xbox 360] I get sick from once in a while because the cook isn't always reliable."
I'm sorry but that's funny stuff. Gotta remember
"How would you describe each current game console if you had to describe it as a meal or food?
JT: I probably couldn't do it objectively.
You don't need to be objective! "
Let's just say
XBOX 360 is delicous meal that might expired too soon. Gonna try your luck.
PS3 is the most luxurious but not necessary the most delicous meal.
Wii is a fast food, you come you eat you're done, you leave.
He always pissed me off i still dont have reason to buy PS3
xbox 360 have good game and wii have something i never try before
i like sony they need to show US gamers why to buy ps3 dont say KZ 2 because the first one look good but game suck you know it too
its the way this stupid industry works everything comes out towards the end of the year surely you can understand that
everything for the 4th quarter they think we don't have money all year round or something
get it y does sony always have to attack people what is their problem its like a bunch of kids are working there
So i take it you have never read Mr. Moores attacks on the PS3 then huh? They both do it, hell even the "Angelic" Nintendo does it. So quite complaining just because this time he's actually on to something.
lol at that picture, but its been photoshopped by the looks of things.
"get it y does sony always have to attack people what is their problem its like a bunch of kids are working there"
That's been going on for years and years, it's not just Sony and X-box
"We do what nintendon't" <--- Sega
Etc, besides, moore said things, jack said things, that's gaming.
Enough with the food, electronic, cars, movie, ect comparison. A great product doesn't need comparison. It's is own league!
yea they all say things but sony always has to attack in a very aggressive, embarrassing way and u kno thats tru
No seriously you should stop talkin and take some time to think about what you wanna say. So basically Mr. Tretton hurt your feelings by being too personal? WTFF is wrong with you? You make it seem like he was talkin about Mr. Moore or Mr. Gate's Mothers. They both do it man quite whinning your makin us look bad. JUST STOP!!!
Sony may be SLIGHTLY more harsh when they respond but microsoft does it a whole lot more. Anyways its not like he deliberately sent out that statement like "I want everyone to know that...", if you read the whole interview, he was asked to objectively name each console and he tried to avoid it at first but the interviewer just kept on going so he had to give his opinion. What did you want him to say, "theyre both kicking our ass so I wont talk about it"? No, hes going to promote the ps3. Anyways the wii is more like the toy that you get with your happy meal.
And you know it Microsoft executives have been pointing fingers and laughing at Sony and being aggressive to Sony and you think Sony is the one that is doing it like wow really and of course Sony barely touch Microsoft with there own comments only a few just look at how many Microsoft executive comments that Peter Moore did to Sony.
Jack Tretton, Reggie Fils-Aime, and Peter Moore:
NO HOLDS BARRED, TEXAS STYLE!!!
THREE MEN ENTER!!!
ONE MAN LEAVES!!!
TAKING BETS NOW!!!
(Yes, I know that Moore is no longer with MS, but given the amount of smack-talking he's done, he's still relevant).
This, of course, is intended in good fun.
But Reggie would smoke them both! He is a friggin giant compared to the other two. Not too mention he just has that "cool" factor that you love to see in an exec.
Moore, God love him, reminds me of that annoying prankster from school in your youth. You know the little sh!t that made all the wise cracks but could easily get his @ss kicked but somehow managed to avoid a beat down...most of the time.....
Tretton....is the fat little tard who obsessed with food and porn. You couldn't help but want to pick on him even though you felt sorry for him at times..you just wanted to pick on him especially cause he would crack smart ass comments all the time as though he was something more than he was.
...ass for the food comment:
Wii = Pizza everyone loves it, and its meant for groups but you cant eat it all the time or you get sick of it.
360 = Great steak from a hole in the wall place that everyone goes to. Once in a while its over done, but its a good price and tastes great.
PS3 = Same steak as the 360 but its served at a high-end place with some great side dishes to go along with the steak. Its pricey comparatively but good everytime you go.
By tretton, dont you mean yourself?
Wow....you came up with that all by yourself? Give yourself a goldstar today! ;)
....drink the coolaid...you will begin to feel numb...but then everything will be ok. Don't question it...just drink the coolaid and all will be right.
well said Tretton! & LOL @ unreliable cook!...True!.
Sony (is like your parents they make mistakes, but have to love them anyways,they have your best interests in mind)
Nintendo (is like your grandparents, it just not the same as when you were a kid, but you still fully respect them)
Microsoft(is like a drunk uncle, he`s fun to hang with, but he`s no one to look up to, he`s only concerned about fun in the moment, and if your not carefull he might try to take advantage of ya)
it's the same as kojima was saying.everyone can see ps3 has more value built in than any other system.and ps3 is just getting started.
it's DLP movie theater experience,it's a mercedes,it's lobster and steak and it's complimented by a good messy burger from your favorite restuarant.
while microsoft is the sushi bar that gave you sickness but you really love sushi and want to see if it was just a fluke serving.it's the nice looking car that is always in the shop.looks good while driving it,but you hate paying the shop fees over and over to get it back on the road.
and nintendo is the lollipop,the cheap thrill,the easy lay that has no lasting value.you have fun,but you would rather have a long lasting relationship.
that is the ps3.a marathon runner with legs built to last the race.patchwork and baby strollers will only get you so far.
and for those who want to know,one of my friends that i try to keep in touch with after being manager at gamecrazy said his 360 broke while playing gears of war online and he refused to fix it for $140.he now has coverage.another coworker's system also broke and my previous manager when i was assistant that went into the office has just got his back from the shop.
love the games,but f*ck the 360 system.it means all the launch systems we sold broke.glad i didn't buy it during launch and after leaving gamecrazy.but i will play him in ALL PRO FOOTABALL ON ps3 inbetween him playing his friends on 360.well....when it's fixed anyway.
Jack Tretton is an ass
Jack Tretton is a badass
lol couldnt resist xD
Too bad "the unreliable cook" makes food that more people like.
And they want tons of "lollipops" for dessert.
An "unreliable cook" is a person.
A "lollipop" and "the Best on menu" are food items.
Jack Tretton failed to use consistent analogies for the comparison. It seems like he wanted to use food items as analogies to compare the consoles, but he's too much of an idiot to realize that an "unreliable cook" does not match with "lollipop" and "the Best on menu" in the context of an analogous comparison.
he was trying to say tnat the "360" was being cooked by an unreliable cook which means that he is talking about food and not the person. think before you post a comment which tackles analogy wiseguy.

Haaahahhahahahhah....i swear some of u cats on here can be comedians,
i swear. I read the article only to see what u guys say. The Shyt be funny.Haaaaaa, i'm laughing now. Bubbles to truth, delacy, bill (this
kid is hilarious}, covenet (i want in homie),uxo, komrad, xxz, to many names but u motherfu@#$ are funny. For real.
C'mon guys, relax a little. He was put on the spot with a direct question and thats what he came up with. Its not like he woke up this morning with that line in mind and ran to the newspapers to tell them what an unreliable cook M$ is.
Sometimes people need to relise the contex some of these comments were made in and that they're not that big a deal. Hey if he wanted to be really mean he could have just said turkey, balony, M$ are Hotdogs.....I could go on all day.
How about giving props to him for when asked about the failure rates he just talked about the quality of the PS3 rather than trashing the XBox. With a set up like that he could have really laid the slippers in if he choose to.
Remember PS2 and PSP when they first came out?
How about those recent exploding laptop batteries? As bad as the 360 problems are, they do not explode.
" Sony's Jack Tretton: 360 is an "unreliable cook", Wii a "lollipop" & PS3 " The Best on menu"
Well well well what a suprise, someone from sony says something good about the PS3...in tha past people from sony only have been negative about the Ps3 so i admire this person.
as he's a terrible PR person, but come on, that line was funny as hell.
his meal comparrison maybe wasn't as eloquent as Hideo Kojima's but it expressed the point rather well.
PS3 - expensive meal at a fine restaurant. certainly quality, but not everyone can indulge.
Wii - light snack. fun in small portions, but can't sustain you indefinitely.
360 - good food, but sometimes unrealiable or unpredictable (like Panda Express here in Los Angeles. they generally have some good stuff, but on a bad day, oh man) you never know if you're going to get a good meal, or a dud.
it was all in good fun, really. he even admitted he couldn't be objective about it, and they goaded him on anyway, specifically to incite some fanboy bs.
the truth of the matter, is that these high-paid execs are *NOT fanboys.
they don't give a rats @ss if you own the competitors console, as long as you're buying software for *THEIR console.
they're always amicable and friendly to one another in person, having drinks and probably laughing about how insanely rich they all are.
the bickering and "bashing" as most fanboys are so quick to label anything remotely criticizing their prized console of choice, is bs.
every single one of these folks own a 360, Wii, and PS3, despite what company they work for.
being a fanboy of a system isn't feasible in the business world, as you never know where you'll end up in the future (look at Peter Moore. he was at Sega, then at Microsoft, now at EA. who knows, he could end up running Sony at some point in the future).
these people are paid to be the public face of their companies, and there was no bashing here at all.
you guys seriously need to grow up, or develop some thick skin.
This guy can rarely makes good commments.
Jack you have too much money on your hands.
id say 360 will give you the runs.
Whats funny is he had to justify being in last place from the PSP to the PS3 through out most of the interview. Sorry dudes the Playstation is last this round, looks like the Wii will enjoy the victory when/if they catch up to the 360. The PS3 on the other hand is still being outsold by the Wii 7 to 1 and by the 360 2 to 1 so I guess they arn't catching up anytime this year. Sorry Droids but the truth is the truth, hit dissagree with me take my bubble if you want but nothing I said was a lie.
