With a year of on-the-job experience under his belt, Tretton sat down to answer IGN's burning questions about where he's been, the PS3's first year and where Sony is going.
report this dude above me as spam and please take a bubble...
Dark Sniper has awarded you a bubble plus an agree.
I hate all these PR folks who think they can spin stories.
Think about it. How many interviews have you read from Nintendo or Microsoft president and CEO. Almost none because they carefully select each interviewers!!! They hide in their hole.
Yet, you have a guy who basically answers any questions from any interviewers, good or bad. Look at the sick questions those guys from Mercury's BLOG asked, and yet, Tretton is not hiding in a hole.
So you may not like him, but how do you like the wimps from Nintendo and Microsoft then? At least, Peter Moore had balls...
Now, his job is basically to market a product. Sure he will spins some answers around (and he is very good at it). Why do you think he is being paid that much by Sony... To go out and say bad things about Sony? or to market the product? You don't need to pay somebody to say bad things about a console, there's tons of people doing it for free here!!!!
thats how you handle a interview like a pro
well done IGN and cya gamespot
please IGN went light on him. they didn't ask the hard hitting questions like?
1)with the release of HS,lair,uncharted,R&C,ect. why aren't games selling on the ps3?
2)the ps3 has been out alittle over a year now. when will the ps3 do in-game messaging and cross-games invites or play music while playing games?
3)with excluvises coming out for both systems (ps3 & 360) why do we not see alot more avertisment for your games?
4)MS like to toot it's attachment rate per system every month when npd numbers are release.what are some of the step sony will be taking to get ther attach rate up?
5)when will the next price drop come?
6)how would you counter M$ if they drop the price of the 360?
7)when do you think the ps3 will become profitable and put you back in the black?
8)with halo 3 selling at 1.7mil in one day and over 5mil sold already WW. what will you do to get some of you heavy hitters to sell like that or close too those numbers?
9)why are so many games delayed on the ps3 and what are your step to help reduce some of the delays.
and the final question and best one
10)last year you made a statement last year. that if anyone see the ps3 on store shelves that you would pay $1200. i saw quite a few around that time.when do you think i and others can get our money?
