    Jack Tretton To Step Down As President And CEO Of Sony Computer Entertainment America | Reuters

    TOKYO, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. today announced that Jack Tretton will step down from his role as President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) as of March 31, 2014. This is a result of a mutual agreement between Mr. Tretton and SCEA not to renew their contractual relationship.

    Mr. Tretton has been with SCEA since its inception in 1995. As one of the founding members of the executive team, Tretton played a pivotal role in launching all PlayStation® platforms in North America, including the original PlayStation®, PlayStation®2, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable), PlayStation®3, PlayStation® Network, and PlayStation®Vita. Most recently, Tretton led the record-breaking launch of PlayStation®4 (PS4™), which sold more than one million units in 24 hours in North America and is now the #1 next generation gaming console in North America and worldwide. During his tenure, Tretton was also responsible for achieving several industry milestones, including surpassing 50 million units sold of PlayStation®2 in North America, and aggressively growing the PlayStation business in Canada and Latin America.

    I wonder if there's some actual reason why he's decided to step down.

    Wow.... Between this and Amy Hennig leaving Naughty Dog Monday, it's been a tough week for Playstation. Two huge names leaving their ranks. I really hope this isn't the start of some restructuring of the company. They were just starting to get things right. Now who's going to give the killer E3 speeches?

    I'm thinking the same thing. Tretton's a major player in SCEA, and I wonder who will be able to fill his shoes?

    He must've done something wrong since it goes into effect at the end of this month?

    I'm thinking sex scandal with another man or an underage girl

    The man is a don, Layden should do well in his place but Jack has been great for the brand, best of luck to him.

    Don't get your knickers in a knot ladies. Jack's no spring chicken and he probably intended to retire following the PS4 launch. He's done his job, he's had a great career and it's an appropriate time to head out on a high.
