Former PlayStation Boss Jack Tretton Will Return on Spike TV

Appearing as press conference pundit
If you’re suffering from Jack Tretton withdrawal symptoms, worry not – the former PlayStation president will put in an appearance at E3, after all. After a slew of memorable interviews with GameTrailers TV host Geoff Keighley, the duo will be teaming up one more time for this year’s Spike TV coverage of the big show. The veteran executive will work as a ‘special correspondent’, meaning that he’ll provide insight on Sony, Ubisoft, EA, and – incredibly – Microsoft’s pressers as they unfold.
“Since I dropped the mic last year on Spike TV, I thought that it was only appropriate to pick it back up for E3 this year,” the big man said in a statement. “I've been to every E3, but this year I'm excited to see the show through a different lens with the team at Spike TV. I'll be watching the news and announcements unfold alongside the fans and the rest of the industry, and I can't wait to see the new games that everyone is bringing to the table.”
Of course, we suspect that he may already have an inkling about what Sony’s going to show, seeing as he only concluded his epic tenure at PlayStation a couple of months ago. It’s going to be particularly interesting to see what he has to say about the competition, given that he’s always been sitting in one format’s camp. Whatever insight he has to share, we’re sure that the sports-like punditry will be delightfully over-the-top as always. It really is the most wonderful time of the year.
