Microsoft Congratulates Sony

With all the fierce competition in this latest console war it’s easy to think that the competing companies fight with each other just as much as their fans. However, that is not always the case. Though Sony has not missed an opportunity to capitalize on Microsoft’s mistakes, or Microsoft that they have dropped the ball. Now Sony has taken some criticism for some of their comments towards Microsoft (mainly from Xbox One fans) but I think that a lot of people forget that Microsoft has taken a lot of shots at Apple in their ad campaigns.

The reason I bring this up is because Sony has just launched their latest console the Playstation 4 and when ill wills can be at their highest I was surprised to see the image above. Microsoft seemingly took the high road and congratulated their competition. Which brings me to the big question; Is this a sincere gesture or a last ditch attempt at marketing ploy to try and win themselves some fans, or even try to just hold on to the ones they have? It’s no secret that Microsoft’s marketing strategy hasn’t been too popular with consumers and in the long run may have hurt sales of the Xbox One.

So what are your thoughts on this Nerd Nation? Like most people that came across this image this morning I’m not sure what to think. Is this a sincere congratulations to Sony or do you think Microsoft has some sort of agenda with their latest post? Leave us a comment below or on our Facebook page. The Xbox one will be available November 22.
