Sony: We Were Consistent, Others Have Shifted Their Message
Sony continues to take jabs at Microsoft’s Xbox One strategy.
At this point, Sony has taken just about every shot at Microsoft that it can. E3 was a bloodbath, where each member of the PlayStation team made sure to target the Xbox One and its not-so-user-friendly policies, and as you’d guess, Gamescom has been no different. Right before Sony’s press event closed, current president and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Andrew House made sure to stick one final point to the Xbox maker.
"While others have shifted their message and changed their story, we were consistant in maintaining policies and a model that is fair and in tune with consumer desires," House said.
For the full video of house's speech, take a look below. The slam dunk moment is at the 34 second mark:
Of course, this is referring to Microsoft’s numerous changes to its initial messaging for the Xbox One. Kinect is now longer required, there are no online check-ins, and yes, the thing comes with a headset. It’s safe to say that Sony is confident in its product, and it’s not afraid to say so on some of the biggest stages.
