This feels relevant (even though it's probably not)

On topic, regardless of my own feelings on his direction or anything, panels like these are always insightful in some way and you learn something new.

”We let the games do the talking”

I don’t know wether he’s good or bad for the company, it’s too early to tell. What I do know is I always thought he looks a bit like that orc captain in Return of the King.

What is it with video game company's still using these old men to talk about games?
It's a record breaking CEO talking in a conference about how they dominate and will continue dominating their industry, not a salesman or youtuber.

It would be nice to see their game being announced and shown there, but she left Google in February so very likely it won't be the case because they still won't have anything to show.

I miss Kaz Harai.

And also Andrew House and Jack Trenton.

Kaz though a great CEO also made bad decisions that almost tanked Playstation. Jack was just a face and got out while he could, and grew as far as he could position wise. House also had done what he could position wise but things were changing.

Would love Andrew back more than anything. Was a smart guy with great relationships in Japan.

I like Jade, but I don't think she has released a game since AC2.
These are some of the ones she released after AC2 (some of them were released after she left Ubisoft Toronto or Motive but were being co-developed by these studios she created and was leading while she was there), I may miss some other games:
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines
The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot
Splinter Cell: Blacklist
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - Freedom Cry
South Park: The Stick of Truth
Far Cry 4
Assassin's Creed: Unity
Assassin's Creed: Syndicate
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege
Far Cry Primal
Tom Clancy's The Division
Watch_Dogs 2
For Honor
Star Wars: Battlefront II
Battlefield V
Anthem
Star Wars: Squadrons
(While she was at Stadia they released some externally developed 3rd party exclusives like Outcasters or Gylt)

Jim Ryan and valve?

Either incompatible partnership or signs of further cooperation (hopefully the latter)
Valve released games on PlayStation and now Sony released games on Steam. But I'd bet they are in separate conferences, each one will talk about their own business so I highly doubt they'd announce any particular cooperation.

I see a danger here, Ryan will be opening his mouth. Well, jokes aside, we shall see. It will likely be a nothingburger.
