I have a lot of respect for Jack Tretton. He stole the show at E3 2012, and I agree with his thoughts on free-to-play.
In the most recent Official Playstation Blogcast, he had some words of encouragement for a rival company: Nintendo.
"Rising tide lifts all boats. Any time there is attention to the industry, any time there is attention to gaming it’s a good thing for us.
It takes a village of creativity to ultimately push technological boundaries. I think Nintendo has a great heritage in the business, they certainly surprised a lot of people with the success of the Wii. They’ve got great heritage in their first party development, and I’m interested to see what happens with it. But I think anything that draws attention to gaming is good for companies like us that live and die in this business, so I wish them a lot of success."
This is just a nice story especially amid so much sniping going on between Sony and Nintendo fans. Obviously, Tretton wants Sony to beat Nintendo, but I really appreciate this kind of professional courtesy.
What do you guys think?
