How is it different to anything Sony, MS or EA has done or currently does?

It might help them develop on more than 1 console at a time. If they get coin from 1 of the big publishers it would usually mean an exclusive deal or timed exclusivity of some sort.

Can only wish good things for Jack, he was one of the good guys of the industry.

It's like Angel funding with an added blvenue where they get guidance in making and marketing, along with getting them in with an appropriate publisher in some cases. There are several such things like this around the country

Wish Jack Tretton was still at Sony.

Im sure he's enjoying not having to wear the Sony tinted glasses all the time. In fact, the full interview with him eludes to just that.

I just wish he'd chosen a different business partner.

You are really not helping. He has been with PS for decades. It was his choice to leave PS and Sony. Despite this, he’s still respect PlayStation at a whole. All I can say that I hope him for the best in future.

I wasn't suggesting he wouldn't still work with Sony. If you read something more into my comment then thats your problem not mine.

UCForce883d ago

Well, I did read his interview way back then. He is no longer work with Sony for sure. But he has respect for them. And again, I hope the best for him. Again, you are not helping.

I like Uncle Jack a lot, but I also think Shawn is doing a great job.
