Special correspondent, indeed
Jack Tretton might not be presenting on one of E3’s largest stages anymore, but that doesn’t mean he can stay away from the show. The former President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment of America will be lending an analytical eye regarding his thoughts on the press conferences. Not just PlayStation’s presser, mind you — all of them.
As reported by Kotaku, Tretton will serve as a “special correspondent” to Geoff Keighley on Spike TV’s June 9 coverage of E3. The two will pair up to provide commentary and thoughts after Microsoft’s, EA’s, Ubisoft’s, and Sony’s big shows. Other panelists are expected to join the duo throughout the duration of the 11-hour coverage.
It’s certainly interesting that Spike was able to secure someone with such stature as Tretton. This should be a real treat if he actually gives his honest opinion of his former company and its competition.
