Looking at the sudden departure of Tretton, it seems that there is some kind of internal politics being cooking up among the higher levels of Sony.

Though the exact reason of the Tretton exit is not clear yet, it seems that the surprising announcement is still yet to be digested clearly by other staff of Sony as well. However, what Tretton declared the reason of moving out was the “mutual agreement” with SCEA and nothing beyond that. However, the true story behind all this entirely depends on what the company and the president himself might have discussed Certainly this news is indigestible. However, it is equally a fact that at the end of this month, 31st march will be the last day of Tretton to serve the company and later would be replace by the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Sony Network- Shawn Layden. Working for more than 19tearsm, Tretton certainly has gained the most rewarding experience.
