Jack Tretton: PS4 will be plastic and some type of rectangle

#1 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2591 posts) -

For those of us like myself who seriously missed Jack Tretton at the Playstation Meeting yesterday, we've got our fix courtesy of CNBC's report on the Playstation 4.

See it Here

Warning: The man is the king of spittin' game, so you could experience side effects such as mesmerisation and sudden urges to buy Sony products.

ED: By the way, for me the video does not play unless you disable ad-block.

I thought it'd just be like the Apple TV as in, a square.

Hey man, maybe! The square shape is a subset of the rectangle shape.

Dreams never die!

All jokes aside I'd really prefer if Sony made it like Apple TV and Google TV in design.

Flat as fuck. A Square. All ports on back, maybe one or two on the side and fucking quiet.

Apple and Google got this shit down to a science the past 5 years. Just copy that shit.

Is there a re-up of that on Youtube or something? I just cannot get that video to play...

Oh man! He came off as such a dick. Sounds like he's had such a rough day.

It's like he had heard that 'what does the console look like' question over and over and was just fucking so sick of it. Good on him. It's a dumb thing to be hung up on.

Jack Tretton is the man.

I was so disappointed when this man didn't appear on the press conference. He is such a fantastic speaker. I want recordings of his calm, soothing voice to fall asleep to.

Man he did not miss a beat with any of those questions. Mad props to him.

@darthorange: Yeah, you can tell he's really on top of his shit. I like that even in the interviews with the purely business focused reporters he talks about the focus on the customer and developer, that's quite encouraging and may lead to some real innovation next cycle.

Oh that is such a great response. Just..such a great response.

@kaosangel: same here, the curves they put on things make em look ugly. I honestly would rather them just make it look like one of their bluray players.

It's confirmed PS4 won't be a triangle. Tretton handled that majestically.

'They didn't show the box.'
'I didn't see any women.'


Seriously, the stuff people are harping on sounds like they are desperate to have something to complain about. I feel I'm going insane. I expected so much less than they showed.

I really like Jack Tretton. He is seriously good at his job.

Also was surprised at the intelligent questions being fired there, wasn't expecting those.

No it isn't, Sony clearly should have shown at least a picture. How could they not have seen this question being asked a trillion times?

It could look like a plastic pile of shit for all I care. As long as it does what I want it to do. I guess that's just me though.

I'm sure they saw it coming, doesn't make it any less dumb. I don't think Sony knows what it will look like yet, other then a plastic rectangle.

Jack Tretton fucking spits some game and that was the best way he could of dealt with some of those tough questions. Great job, Jack!

If Jack Tretton needs a guy to take into the back room and punch in the stomach and face repeatedly to let off some steam... Well, I volunteer to be that guy.
