While we expect good sportsmanship from athletes, it’s not generally something that we see in the cutthroat world of business. Competition can make the difference between a company going under or being a huge success. So it made me incredibly happy to see this exchange between MS and Sony.

This is what it’s all about. Both companies are excited about their products. Sure, they’re competing, but without that competition this whole launch would be so boring. Well done to Microsoft and Sony – show the world that you can be on opposing teams and still have respect for each other. Now, if only some of the console warring fanboys could learn from this.
Meanwhile, the Kaz Hirai parody account has been making us laugh this morning:
Breaking News: PlayStation 4 is currently outselling XBOX ONE in North America!

All in all, nice to see some positive attitudes and interactions in the midst of this launch period. Of course, all that will be undone when the Black Friday mobs beat each other to a pulp in the US of A.
