maybe Jack Trenton was screwed by the PSN issue and didn't get the promotion.

On the strength of what? the amazing performance of SCEE at pissing off all of the EU??congrats Housey boy you spawned another job!! The mind boggles at how these clueless gits get on.

Jack is only the boss of the USA region.

House is the Boss of corporate operations.

COO is a higher position than the boss of the USA region, House will be on the board of worldwide directors where as jack just gets told what to do from them.

No. Sony's E3 is hosted by whoever is the CEO of SCEA.

Jack Tretton is still the CEO of SCEA.

but the head of PS always has a part in E3 as well as SCEA president

both Ken Kutaragi and Kaz Hira headed PS and help host E3
