Get a Behind the Scenes Look at Shawn Layden, SCEA’s New CEO

It’s been old news that Sony America’s Jack Tretton has stepped down from his position of President and CEO, only to be replaced by a longtime Sony big wig, Shawn Layden.

However, we haven’t really seen or heard Shawn make a public appearance as CEO and President since his time in the position, until Sony’s E3 2014 press conference. Shawn took to the stage to talk about old games he was fond of at his beginnings with Sony over a decade ago, as well as reveal some new goodies that Sony has been cooking in the oven behind the scenes. Featured above, we got a more intimate talk between him and Sid Shuman from the Playstation Blog.

Clearly, Shawn knows his stuff about games, and it’s a bit more reassuring to know someone in such high of a position seems to truly care about the games that Sony puts out – most especially the indies.
