Sony announced yesterday that SCEA boss Jack Tretton, who has been with PlayStation since its inception nearly two decades ago, will be stepping down due to mutually agreed reasons. Tretton’s reign of SCEA was memorable, as he oversaw not just the obscenely successful PlayStation, PS2, and PS4, but also the rocky road suffered by the PS3, PSP, and PS Vita.

Taking to Twitter, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer had some very nice things to say about Tretton: “Jack Tretton has been a strong leader in our industry for many years. Good luck to him whatever he decides to do next,” Spencer said. “I’ve only only known Jack for about a year but he’s always been a true pro with me.”

When asked, most likely jokingly, what the odds of Tretton working with Microsoft were, Spencer shot down the idea- “I don’t think Jack’s next move will be here at Microsoft,” he said.

While the exact reasons behind Spencer’s departure are still not known, one thing is for sure, at least- he left on a high, winning note, riding out on the crest of the PlayStation 4’s resounding success.
