Shuhei Yoshida wants to release The Last Guardian information when it's no longer 'piecemeal'

The Last Guardian remains everyone's favorite bit of apparent vaporware; the game that's always teased as every E3 rolls around, but never fully realized. In fact, it just wouldn't be E3 without some mention of the veritable ...

MLB 14 looks great on PS4, but comes with load times slower than baseball photo
MLB 14 looks great on PS4, but comes with load times slower than baseball
by Steven Hansen

I was mostly satisfied with MLB 14 The Show's initial PS3 and Vita release. Hitting ahead of the PS4 version led to some (perhaps overdue) improvements, from the UI overhaul to PS3/PS4/Vita cross saves to a universal The Show profile to franchise carry over into the next years' installments.

Coupled with little touches like a new dynamic camera angle, the addictive weekly challenge, and even more gameplay options (Quick Count and Player Lock), it felt like a worthy send off for the best baseball series of the last generation.

The problem, of course, is when the PS4 version hits (now), none of this is new. It just looks better. And somehow loads slower.

We recently had the pleasure of diving into Hohokum with Sr. Producer, Zach Wood, live on Dtoid.TV. It seemed to put everyone in the room into a technicolor joy trance, and we've heard similar reports of players elsewhere being pacified by the vibrant world of Hohokum.

SCEA CEO Jack Tretton is leaving at the end of this month photo
SCEA CEO Jack Tretton is leaving at the end of this month
by Jordan Devore

Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced its president and CEO Jack Tretton, who has been with the company since 1995, will step down as of March 31, 2014. His successor is Sony Network Entertainment International executive VP and COO Shawn Layden, another long-time PlayStation employee. He previously served as president of SCE Japan.

This departure comes as "a result of a mutual agreement between Mr. Tretton and SCEA not to renew their contractual relationship," according to an SCEA press release.

Calling his time with the company "the most rewarding experience of [his] career," Tretton said "Although I will deeply miss the talented team at SCEA and the passion demonstrated every day by our fans, I'm very excited about starting the next chapter of my career.

"I want to thank the employees, partners and customers for their tireless commitment to the PlayStation brand and, of course, to our fans who have pushed us to new heights of innovation and entertainment over the past two decades. I leave PlayStation in a position of considerable strength and the future will only get brighter for PlayStation Nation."

Ah, man. I always enjoyed hearing from him at E3. You couldn't help but root for the guy.
