Tretton was effective in introducing the PlayStation brand to the North American market in 1995, and has successfully served in popularizing the brand with each iteration of its console and portable systems since.

Current executive vice president and COO of Sony Computer Entertainment International (SCEI) Shawn Layden will take the reigns from Tretton. Layden is no short of experience as he served in pivotal roles within Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) and its subsidiaries throughout the world for the past 10 years.

Tretton’s official withdrawal from Sony will occur March 31. His legacy remains to be one of the most successful in video game history as proven by the steady hardware and software ecosystem that the PlayStation has continuously offered.

The announcement comes off of the recent reporting from Sony that the PlayStation 4 has currently sold more than 6 million units worldwide to date.
