Well, it’s not called a “console competition” now is it? No, it’s called a console war for a reason and sometimes there’s mud slinging involved. Last night, following Sony’s February 20th unveiling of the PlayStation 4, XBOX’s Larry Hyrb also known as Major Nelson took to the twitter-verse to share his feelings on Sony’s big night. Take a look at the tweet in question:


When asked about the lack of an actual console at the meeting, president of Sony’s Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida joked with Kotaku by saying, “Why do you care?” He also emphasized that the only reason the controller was revealed during the press conference was due to the fact that Sony performed live demos on stage.

What do you think? Was it a Sony misstep by not showing the hardware? Or was Major Nelson’s tweet simply a cheap shot since we haven’t heard anything from his camp? Let us know in the comments.
