Former SCEA president Jack Tretton will be joining Geoff Keighley at the Spike All Access event as a guest correspondent for E3!
I'm so happy about this, can't wait to see what he has to say about... pretty much everything. He'll surely give some insight about his departure from Sony and he'll most definately comment on all the game reveals. Now it only takes an Agent reveal to make this situation perfect. https://www.youtube.com/wat... #Believe :D
he really knows his stuff ive heard! ^.^ so yeah happy too
Mics will be dropped !
Hell yeah... Jack is back!!! @ shivvy24 :D ++funny
At this point E3 just wouldn't be the same without him :) Even though I see a lot of disagrees here, for me he was the most sympathethic guy in the industtry. I always liked listening to his presentations and these down-to-earth and eloquent responses in interviews https://www.youtube.com/wat... I always thought he was one of the most honest guys in this industry so I really want to hear what he has to say about this years E3.
@Zod " I always thought he was one of the most honest guys in this industry" This I agree with. A lot of people won't remember this but I remember very early last year reading an article when the whole DRM controversy was brewing that Jack Tretton was one of the sony people that strongly opposed it being on the PS4. I have searched tirelessly for that article ever since and have not been able to locate it unfortunately but I know what I read. The moment I read it I remember saying to myself that the ps4 was not gonna have DRM. The guy has always seemed genuine and very customer focused. If it was all an act then it was a damn good one and he still has earned my fullest respect. I feel compelled to support this guy in anything he is involved with.
As soon as I heard that he was leaving I sent him an autograph request, as I collect them. He was happy to oblige and I also received a nice note of gratitude. He even threw in some temporary PlayStation tattoos.
Nice! I didn't think we'd be seeing him at this E3. I like the dude.
Why you have disagree? Jack is awesome. Who can't like Jack. He is/was one of the most honest and open suits in the gaming industry.
Do we know who will be hosting the actual conference yet? I really hope it's Adam Boyes, Andrew House, or Kaz Hirai and not somebody we're less familiar with. All 3 of these guys are super friendly. Shu Yoshida would be amazing, only his English is unfortunately not so great and would be difficult.
Shu's English is great. I'd love it if he hosted the entire conference.
Jacks actual replacement at Sony is Shawn Layden: http://us.playstation.com/c... http://us.playstation.com/c... But I haven't heard anything about who's actually hosting. I'd prefer some familiar faces though. Hopefully it'll be kind of a combination of everyone you mentioned. Maybe Cerny could translate for Shu :)
tretton is the mad sad to see him leave sony.
Thank you Sony!
Sasuke i see you all cocky and tellin Kakashi to shut up LOL on topic: Jacj was the man
Don't encourage him...
I knew Jack wouldn't miss E3 :)
Jack is coming back! http://giant.gfycat.com/Une...
@DigitalRaptor OMG, that was f**king awesome. Was that real? lol
Nah man, that was a reversed gif of this: http://static.giantbomb.com...
E3 + Jack Tretton + Dropping Mics = AMAZING!!! Only problem is my cable provider only offers Spike in SD instead of the HD variant, but oh well. Just happy to see Jack Tretton will be at E3 this year as a guest. Can't Wait :D
This is awesome. Playstation King and Dorito Pope <3
I noticed before that Geoff Keighley "likes" Xbox on Facebook but not PlayStation.
What do you really expect from the Doritos Pope? http://static.giantbomb.com...
Eh gonna be very biased against MS and for PS. Not a fan of this decision, events like E3 should be non biased and completely judged based on what is actually be shown.
you forget he doesn't work for Sony anymore. so there isn't any restrictions on what he can say.
Would you be biased for the company that let you go?
Wonderful. Can't wait!
Good news to hear E3 wouldn't be the same if he wasn't there.
I like the guy, shame how things ended with Sony , but don't blame him for walking , if i had performed and they wanted to halve my salary to keep in line with the other Sony Execs after the financial loses of the last year id be pretty pissed too.
Jack has always reminded me of a Jersey gangster. Especially when he put a hit out on Xbox at last year's E3.
MEGATONS INCOMING!!!! Jack + theater = best e3 ever!!
I do not know why, but i like JACK TRENTON ! Glad he will be at E3 ! But i do have a huge beef with SPIKE TV ! Why the bleep do you a award show in December ! Why not wait till JANUARY or FEB. ! In 2012 FAR CRY 3 was not even nominated for anything, because it came out in December of 2012 . WTF!!! And just because you gave FAR CRY 3 BLOOD DRAGON a award in 2013, that does not dismiss the fact that you ignore all games that come out in December, for possible award nominations!
Just b/c he is no longer w/ Sony doesn't mean he won't drop a mic for his Playstation homies.
Good, I love the way that man looks in his blue suit. Very sexy.
Oh. Hell. Yeah!
Lol the murderer of the Xbone comes back to the scene of the crime. BAMF.
