Jack Tretton’s just kicked off Sony’s E3 press conference with a formal apology in regards to the company’s most recent PSN outage.

Referring to the media coverage of the news, the internet likes “bad news,” according to Tretton.

“Nothing pleases the Internet like bad news. So, press outlets: you’re welcome,” he said.

Tretton also thanked third-party partners, before addressing the biggest audience PlayStation has directly: its consumers.

“Without you, there is no PlayStation. I want to apologise personally and on behalf of the company.”

PSN went down on April 19 due to an external intrusion, which seen personal data of 77 million PSN users compromised. The service, following a partial return last month, was fully restored last month.
