Sony Miffed We Posted CEO's Email Address

Sony is peeved that we posted an email address for Jack Tretton, President and CEO Sony Computer Entertainment America, the man in charge of Playstation. They even go so far as to intimate that we have the wrong email address and are bad people. Thing is, we got it from a reader who used it successfully on his issue, and we checked it out. Playstation’s director of blogopolis massage, Patrick Seybold, writes:

“Hi Ben,

Can you please remove the email you listed for Jack Tretton from your website? If you would like to have your readers contact us directly, you can send them to a variety of places, of which I’ve listed a few below. Not sure what you gain by posting what you think is Jack’s email directly – it can and will confuse your readers.

No, we won’t be removing jack_tretton@playstation.sony.com. Not sure what’s so confusing about the email address, jack_tretton@playstation.sony.com, Patrick. “When no one listens to you at Playstation, take it to jack_tretton@playstation.sony.com” seems pretty easy to understand.
