Sony America president Jack Tretton stepping down Sony Computer Entertainment America president and CEO Jack Tretton has confirmed he will be stepping down from the position at the end of the month.
Tretton had been with Sony for almost twenty years, and Sony says the decision was reached after the two parties could not "renew their contractual relationship."

Beginning next month, Sony Network Entertainment International EVP and COO Shawn Layden will take over the position.

"Working at SCEA for the past 19 years has been the most rewarding experience of my career," Tretton added. "I leave PlayStation in a position of considerable strength."

Sony has been in a transitional stage for the last year, as it cuts costs and changes focus.

Have to admit it's looking like the PS4 will prove to be a success story for Sony as he's walking out the door. That's how you want to walk out of a room.

Why doesn't "$ony" itself step down? :S At least fail already LOL! I suppose it takes a lot for a billion dollar company to completely flounder.

To delete, or not to delete. THAT is the question!
