Such a brave man. All of that money and he selflessly decides to make 400 more of it. We all should try to be more like this ivory pillar of society. That's right boys and girls, the next time you are shopping this holiday season for a product that your multibillion dollar company sells, just ask yourself "What would Jack Tretton do if he could immediately make 400 more dollars right here right now?"

He care more about profits than playing video games.

... Is this supposed to be a good thing? Dude, it's one frigg'n PS4, it ain't gonna matter if you take it for yourself.

Apart from this probably being a 100% marketing tool it's still a nice thought

I'm sure he has a few lying around his mansion(s) somewhere. Probably has every prototype model, along with various developer models just sitting in a plastic bin in the closet.

I don't get why he would do this instead of doing an act like... Giving it to a charity or some kid with cancer or some shit. You know how much better that looks?! No one could criticize that!

I get the feeling that this is just a PR stunt.

So generous.

It's obviously a PR stunt

quote Jack Asshole Materialist Tretton
"It breaks my heart if somebody's got $400 in hand and they want a PS4 but we can't sell them one," the Sony exec explained.
*bleep* yourself.

PR Stunt, but fair play if he actually did this out of good gesture.

If I was Jack Tretton I would be to busy ordering whiskeys...with a side of strippers.

I like how people act surprised or appalled when a business acts like a business.

You mean their ultimate goal is to make money? Astonishing!

What a generous man he is, slight sarcasm with my comment but that depends on how you look at the situation to be honest.
