Compliments and respect are not how the console wars should be fought. Gamers were brought up by the old adage of, “Sega does what Nintendon’t” so what is this joyful sorcery? With Uncharted 4 primed to drop on May 10th and the reviews of the game being through the roof, Xbox boss Phil Spencer decided to reach out to Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida on Twitter to congratulate him on the instant classic.
Needless to say, nerds that love to taste the hatred that seeps from the Xbox One versus Playstation 4 rivalry are sure to be displeased.
