Fox Business: Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Jack Tretton on the company's new portable device Vita.
No Tie.....good decision Jack He's like the kind of guy you would want to have as your Neighbour "Morning Jack"...as he walks out to collect his newspaper and mail with his bright pink fluffy slippers, sleek night cap and his nice looking Kimono. "Nice Job on the PSV "Ahhh it was a piece of pie....I do what I do, what I do what I do"
Are you his co-worker or something? Because otherwise that's some pretty pathetic fanboyism.
He doesn't sound like a fanboy. He sounds more like a big fan of Tretton. Now you, on the other hand, sounds like a hater. =/
Jack got him some of that back in the day. ;)
Jackee T FTW
360 button? Lmao
I thought that was pretty funny... it would be nice if some of these news outlets would hire a person with subject knowledge in that position. Forgive the typos. Sent this from my phone.
someone ask him why the playstation tv will be 500 bucks in america and 500pounds in the uk??!!($788.55)
Same with the Vita. And before someone starts off on the "weak pound" (really, when the dollar is pathetically weak?) and "taxes", no amount of either of those accounts for that sort of gouging.
go work in america and then copare it to how much money you get when doing it in europe.
I have, I made substantially more in the US. Please, research how much of our income is taxed in Europe. I live in Ireland, and while we have the highest minimum wage in Europe, we're also one of the most heavily taxed. EVERYTHING is taxed here, practically anything that isn't bread or milk has a 21.5% VAT on it, we have PRSI/PAYE automatically deducted from our salaries at a rather high rate (depending on total income and tax credits) and even a yearly TV license to pay. All that goes towards our social welfare and state health-care systems, so I can't complain really (they're quite necessary), but the point is I don't have more to play around with here than I would in America.
It's not within his control lol They need to take into considerations the insanely high taxes we pay in the UK, and in Europe in general. Plus the weak pound, if Sony want to shave as much off the loss their making as possible, then prices like that will be the norm until the economy shapes up again. @LightofDarkness...you don't understand consumer electronic markets or economics 101 do you? You're acting as if PS Vita is expensive. It's £229. In 2011 thats fucking cheap for a portable device which can do all of what Vita can. People like you just sound like whiney poor people. If it bothers you that much, earmark some money. Can't believe how cheap people are sometimes.
the difference is more than the 20% tax we pay in the UK so i think it is exploitation
nice legs Liz Claman and oh yeah thanks for the release date Jack!
On the website, they titled the video as "Sony's Last Portable Device". They should really fix that.
That's yahoo news for you...You can't expect more from them.lol
Youse all complain but Australia always gets it worse. The aussie dollar is actually stronger than the greenback, maybe for the first time ever as far as I know, Bet you none of you payed a grand for a launch PS3. (Hey, at least its still running.) The ones who get screwed more than us are the Kiwis. Sorry that was supposed to be a reply.
Why do people always compare their curiency to the US? If I lived in a place where I got sheep as payment for my work than, that's how much it would cost me.
You're acting like you, australians are the biggest victims. How about the guys from poorer countries who are still playing on their PS2s because they can't afford those new tech and for anyone who could afford it from there still have to pay the same as you do...Atleast, you australians have a better economy.
