Jack Tretton Steps Down as SCEA CEO
Jack Tretton, CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, has announced he will step down from his position on March 31st, 2014.
Thanks to independent developers and smaller studios, you have the Steven Spielbergs of our industry coming out of one- and two-man teams, out of university development projects, where somebody just has a really creative mind and they come out with a game that maybe doesn’t have $100 million, 300-person team polish but is absolute genius.
Jack Tretton comes to Greg Miller’s ‘Up at Noon’ show on IGN. The Sony boss talks PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One u-turn.
Projects never ultimately go away, so The Last Guardian has certainly not gone away, but it’s on hiatus right now.
I think, if you look back at history we’ve never been first, we’ve never been cheapest, it’s about being best.
You couldn’t have said it better when you said Agent from Rockstar. I work for Sony Computer Entertainment. The minute I start working for Rockstar, I’ll have some definitive information for you on Agent, but I’d suggest you interview one of those guys. That’s what I’ve said for the last five years, and I’ll continue to do that.
For the record, I’m totally opposed to blocking used games. I think it is great for the consumer that they can buy those.
Very, very positive.
