Sony's Jack Tretton is a pretty upset guy. Before last week's E3
, two major surprises were spoiled for Sony, in the PSP Go
and The Last Guardian
leaks. That's made Tretton somewhat bitter -- as one would expect -- and he's told CNBC
that the industry needs to do a better job of keeping a lid on it.
"People don't respect confidentiality in this industry," said Tretton, who is now concerned for the future of his company down the line, where he sees leaks once again beating Sony to its own news. "You have to prepare for people to know things in advance. The frustrating thing is they only know a part of the story and that opens up a lot of conjecture and misinformation that ultimately waters down the reality when you roll it out."
Sure, it's tough, but it's all part of the game (sorry!). If Sony is so concerned with the confidentiality of who it trusts with this information, then it needs to do a better job of policing leaks and encouraging silence. To us, it's as simple as that.
