Perhaps those politely written goodbyes from Sony and Jack Tretton four years ago were not all that genuine. We don’t know what really led to the end of Jack’s reign as PlayStation CEO for Sony. Helping turn around the PlayStation 3 through serving gamers and re-branding the console with tons of pro-consumer moves and solid game studio investments, perhaps the executive behind those well written speeches got sick of all that customer service. Instead, Jack Tretton now joins a group of vultures in predatory practices against gamers on the board of directors at a company called Scientific Revenue which offers to get players spending double the usual amount on in-game purchases, lootboxes, micro-transactions, DLC, and more.
Unless this quote is being taken completely out of context (which seems unlikely at this point) Sony PlayStation Bossinator Jack Tretton may have just taken a shot at Microsoft’s recent allegedly fake sales numbers. Tretton discussed how Sony manufactures as many PlayStation 4s as they can, and we all know they have a lot more factory capability than their competition, and that they are not purposely creating any “feeding frenzy” and will not such as we’ve seen in the past with the Xbox and Wii brands in which units were recalled or never shipped to stores.
JT goes on to speak about how the Sony PS4 is the largest launch in history and “not just playstation history, but gaming history.” In other words Jack Tretton is claiming that the Sony PS4 is far and away the highest selling console of all time and indirectly confirms that the PS4 is selling much more units than the Xbox ONE. He went on to state that 12,000 units sold out in 27 minutes when we recently reported that Amazon had more (and then didn’t almost as soon as we hit publish). More on the situation as it develops.
