We're used to hearing positive comments about Switch from Gaming's Xbox executive vice president, Phil Spencer, but Sony is usually a bit more tense when it comes to praising the competition. In a recent chat with gameinformer, Shawn Layden, president of the SIE, was unusually generous not only mentioning Switch, but also Xbox One X, and apparently pointed to the future approach of Sony.
Surely, PS4 and PS4 Pro provide what, of course, we think is the best gaming experience, but the other consoles out there, whether it's Switch, Xbox One X, or tablets or phones, there are great experiences in all of this. What we have to do is acknowledge all this. We are not small game ghettos that are not federated or aligned at all. We are all part of the same gaming community, we just do it through different ports. I think the future will be an extension of that metaphor. Your platform is not your refuge.
While it is a vague compliment at best, it is encouraging to see any recognition of games outside the Sony ecosystem ̵
The interview covers many other topics, including Sony's decision to withdraw from E3 2019. Worth reading.
Do you find these comments encouraging? Would you like to teach Shawn Layden, Phil Spencer and Reggie to sing in perfect harmony? Let us know in the comments.
