Tretton said the launch of Sony’s PS4 will be unlike any other seen before while simultaneously taking a swing at handhelds and PCs.
“This will be the biggest launch in history, and you are going to see validation that gaming is healthier than it’s ever been, and the console is at the top of the entertainment pyramid,” Tretton said.
The PlayStation America boss also compared release games for older consoles to “TV re-runs.”
“We’re talking about the seventh year of a console, and I guess if you used a TV analogy, you might say, boy, the re-runs of a show we released seven years ago aren’t doing as well as before,” Tretton said.
The world will get its chance to see if Tretton is right about the future of gaming when the PlayStation 4 drops on Nov. 15 in the United States and Nov. 29 in Europe.
