22 February 2013The Verge:
Jack Tretton, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America, sat down for an interview with Forbes and was asked if Sony’s new fleet of cloud services would be available at launch. “I think it’s aspirational on the device, as opposed to us standing up there, pounding the floor and saying the day this thing ships all this stuff will be there,” Tretton replied. “I think it’ll absolutely be there for the device, but I don’t know whether it will be there for day one on the device.”
In hindsight, it is very clear to me that the event on the 20th wasn’t really about PlayStation — it was about being first.
