Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida and Adam Boyes Congratulate Microsoft on Xbox One’s Launch

In a nice show of sportsmanship SCE Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida and Sony’s VP of Publisher & Developer Relations Adam Boyes extended their congratulations to several Microsoft executives over Twitter for the launch of the Xbox One, that was just released in the United States a few moments ago.

Microsoft Game Studios’ honcho Phil Spencer immediately responded in kind to both tweets:

A bit later Xbox’s Director of Product Planning Albert Penello responded as well:

This comes after multiple Microsoft executves, Spencer included, congratulated Sony on the PS4’s launch last week.

In a perfect world fans of both brands would learn something from this kind of sportsmanship. Of course I seriously doubt it’ll ever happen on a large scale, but it’s still a nice pipe dream for the cold winter nights.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
