The man that lead Playstation on Europe all this time, curious Europe is the best continent ever for Playstation.

Well deserved.

Funny as hell seeing this idiot get promoted after the crap he pulled last year right before E3 but in plenty of places you fail upward

UCForce982d ago

Sure, he isn’t perfect but he isn’t annoying like Greenberg and Larry Fish. He does push European gaming markets a lot.

DillyDilly982d ago (Edited 982d ago )

Isn't perfect ? He told a blatant lie just because the competition does something better than Sony does. Than fan boy sites claimed they used new & update to date data spreading mroe lies (probably was asked by someone at Sony like Jim to do it to back up claims only for said sites to admit AFTER E3 that they used old & incomplete data to spread a certain narrative. Hes stupid he knew exactly what he was doing. Anyone thats gotta spread lies just because the competition has them beat in one area are idiots

That's a pretty low bar. Greenberg?

I'm not a fan of Ryan, personally.

rainslacker981d ago (Edited 981d ago )

What lie? That sony cant moderate other networks so theyre not doing cross play with Xbox? Sure his method of delivery left a lot to be desired, but it wasn't a blatant lie.

If Spencer can be promoted to what he was promoted to despite years of misdirection and running the Xbox software brand into next to nothing, then I don't see why Ryan shouldn't be promoted considering his work actually seems to bring results

UCForce982d ago (Edited 982d ago )

Well, that’s how every companies always do when they are number 1. I can say same thing to MS. Let me tell you this, MS was arrogant back in Xbox 360 era. Today, MS just completely ignore the competition. Even Jim Ryan word can be hypocrites and stupid, but he know how to push PS marketing in European. He isn’t talkative like Greenberg and Larry.

DillyDilly982d ago

Please he can be very talkative when he wants to be & I love how people keep bringing up the past with Microsoft. We can do the same with Sony & how cocky & anti consumer they were with the PS3 launch & going from free online play to paid. Neither company is better than the other in my book

DillyDilly982d ago

If you are gonna criticize one company's past you can't act like the other was always perfect when they were not

DillyDilly982d ago

Jim Ryan was wrong to do what he did & has nothing to do with what Microsoft did in the past. is that really peoples best excuse ? "Well this company & or this person did that" That works both ways

UCForce982d ago (Edited 982d ago )

I know it’s the past. But these companies and PR executives will do same thing again and again. Even Nintendo is following the suit about playing online by paying it just like MS and Sony. Yes, I aware that Jim Ryan against the cross play and BC which is stupid from him. But again, the guy have been pushing the PS European marketing pretty well for Sony.

yomfweeee981d ago

What crap did he pull exactly? I know he said some odd things about indies being less relevant and people not wanting BC. Comments that aren't as bad as people make them out to be.

Did he do something else?

Eonjay981d ago

If I remember correctly, he made a statement and some guys went batshit crazy trying to twist what he said into the 'worst thing ever' boo fing who. I hope it made you cry. I don't even remember what it was. You seem very hurt. You want to talk about it? Where did Sony touch you?

leoms981d ago

hein, did he say single player games don't sell? Did he promise 4k/60 uncompromised and it never happened?

Does this mean he'll be doing fewer direct press interviews?

Because good lord does he trip on his own words in those.
