50°
326w ago - SCEA president Jack Tretton has told MCV that the launch of PlayStation 3 was one of the toughest periods of his career so far.

In the second of MCV's new regular series of 'MCV Legends', the top Sony exec revealed that the media storm and weight of expectation surrounding the new console was a real test for the company - but he remains focused on contining to boost the industry's spectacular growth through his role at SCEA.

"There was a lot of concern about the technology promise of the PS3 as well as the price point.

Consumers questioned whether Sony would be able to deliver on that promise. The first year was certainly a baptism under fire.

"Previously, I managed just a portion of the business. Now, I'm responsible for all of it, so I feel a tremendous amount of of responsibility for viritually everything the company does. I would like to show long-term growth and success at the most senior levels."

326w ago - European members have recently been venting their frustration at the poor level of service they have been receiving from SCEE and have been asking for a service equal to that provided by SCEA.

The issue has also been brought up by the member on the US Playstation Blog who asked yesterday if the US blog could global.

Jeff Rubenstein, Social Media Manager, replied saying "We know that there are a lot of readers coming here from beyond North America (notably the UK, Oz, Germany, and more). We're in the process of working out how to make sure your needs are addressed. We hear what you're saying."

To quote: Question:
Can you please go global with PlayStation.Blog. The non-existant regional attempts just make it ever more apparent how good you guys are and how you're filling a much needed spot.

Please? For a chocolate heart? Or a bunny? You like bunnies dontcha?

Answer:
We know that there are a lot of readers coming here from beyond North America (notably the UK, Oz, Germany, and more). We're in the process of working out how to make sure your needs are addressed. We hear what you're saying.
