Jesus...Phil gets around huh?
Sony as whole company was out of touch back then due to the Japanese leadership. It took Kaz, Tretton and the crew to get Sony on the right track. They set things in motion and Jimbo inherited a Sony in a healthy state.Great speaker and presenter. However, he reigned over the worst years at PlayStation so he cant be that good at managing.
Nothis is fake right!?!
I’m pretty sure somehow someone on twitter will use that photo as proof they are an “insider” and MS is buying Sony or god knows what other crazy rumor will come up.No

Wtf are you babbling about? When Jimbo took over all the hardwork had already been done. Kaz took Sony out of the red and into the black. Jimbo never inherited a shit show.So the suit that has a shit eating "im one of you" grin while they businessman is better than businessman being true businessman?
An accurate lesson on the controversy of the "real-time" gameplay trailers that were so damaging the devs had to run damage control. All thanks to the man Tretton, who couldn't even keep which team worked on which game. A true businessman that is more about the art.So funny that people love Jack Tretton, considering he's the guy who fucked up the PS3 reveal E3 with the interview afterwards saying, "It's definitely all real..."
Tretton was only a VP at the time, and he was kind of mixing up titles. (He kept referring back to Ted, as in Ted Price of Insomniac, and Insomniac's game was "real" even if it evolved a lot in the final product; Killzone 2 and MotorStorm and other demos were obviously not "real gameplay"... Guerrilla itself that same week went to the press in order to make it clear that the Killzone trailer was target render footage, so how there was confusion at any point of the line in Sony Corp is unclear still.) But still, he was the guy speaking for Sony saying that the PS3 games reveals at E3 2005 were not fake.
Somehow, he gained back the trust. Or, at least, he gained popularity once he did become President (despite some other ugly E3 moments; Tretton also had to be the one to open an E3 with an apology after the severe crash and downtime of PlayStation Network.) It was an interesting time for Sony in his reign of 2006 to 2014, a million stories good and bad could be told
