Jack Tretton Not Commenting on Profitability of the PS4, Explains Emphasis on Indie Gaming

In an interview with CNN, Jack Tretton expressed his happiness with the PS4’s pre-launch campaign, but refused to comment on ability of the PS4 to make a profit at its current price of $399.

We’re not commenting on that.

Tretton also addressed the emphasis on independent game studios at their conference.

Thanks to independent developers and smaller studios, you have the Steven Spielbergs of our industry coming out of one- and two-man teams, out of university development projects, where somebody just has a really creative mind and they come out with a game that maybe doesn’t have $100 million, 300-person team polish but is absolute genius.

The next Spielbergs? We can only hope.
