Mr Tretton has been very well known for being a spearhead for the PlayStation line of products, the most recent of which, the PS4, being a major seller, outselling Microsoft’s Xbox One in nearly all markets. He will be replaced by Shawn Layden, who is the EVP and COO of Sony Network Entertainment International.

Apparently, this leave is due to a “Mutual Agreement”, but naturually nothing has come to light from that, considering Mr Tretton has been with Sony for 20 years, and part of the Playstation team from the start, this will not be easy for fans to digest to say the least.

Mr Tretton most recently oversaw the launch of Sony’s newest console, the Playstation 4 which was a huge success for the company.

We at Teck Comes First wish Jack all the best in whatever he decides to do next, and welcome Shawn Layden with open, albeit forced, arms.
