Sony: Microsoft’s Moves to Unify Xbox One and Windows Won’t Influence PlayStation’s Strategy

During Sony Corporation’s Investor Day, Sony Interactive Entertainment President Andrew House was asked if the company sees Microsoft’s moves towards the unification of the Xbox One and Windows ecosystem as a threat.

House explained that Sony’s strategy isn’t changing, and it remains to be seen if there is even a large consumer demand for that. You can read his full answer below:

“I always hesitate to be drawn into discussions on someone else’s strategy. I’m more than happy to talk about our own strategy… Yeah, there was a big emphasis from the folks at Microsoft on Xbox and PC cross-play. It remains to be seen on whether there is latent large consumer demand for that.

But we don’t see it as really effecting or prompting any changes in our thought process and strategy. We have always tended to believe that a proprietary ecosystem offering a very well crafted unified client experience is the way to go, and that sort of remains our strategy.”
