PlayStation Italy Posts Cheeky Welcome to Xbox One X

Italians can be natural born comedians, not to mention professional trolls. PlayStation Italy's welcome to the Xbox One X is no exception.

Today marks the release of Xbox One X, and the cheeky folks at the Italian branch of Sony Interactive Entertainment decided to welcome the rival console in a rather funny way.

This is what they posted on their official Twitter account.

This is not the first time PlayStation Italy decides to do a funny soft hijack of the launch of a competing console. They did it with the Switch as well.

Those thinly veiled jabs are actually even more fun because they’re not aggressive, and basically piggyback on the competition associating it with PlayStation imagery and messaging.

There are certainly much worse ways to troll your competitors.

PlayStation Italy was the only one among local PlayStation branches to do this, but we probably missed some. If you know any more, feel free to share them in the comments.

In other Xbox One X news, in the past two days we got information about the upgrade for World of Tanks, a bunch of Bethesda games, Homefront: The Revolution, and Final Fantasy XV.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. 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.
