E3 2014: PlayStation and Xbox Executives Slay the Web with a Simple Embrace

Posted by Sammy Barker

This isn't how it's supposed to be

We thought that this industry was all about a war of words and exclusive games – not hugs and kisses prior to the biggest gaming convention of the year. Alas, it seems that new Xbox boss Phil Spencer and former PlayStation president Jack Tretton are eager to prove that the console war only exists on the Internet, as they enjoy a calm embrace prior to the big show.

GameTrailers TV host Geoff Keighley tweeted that the image marks the start of this year’s E3 proper. To be honest, we won’t consider the event officially open until Fumito Ueda walks on stage with a DualShock 4, and starts playing The Last Guardian live. It’s going to happen in about 14 hours, right? Tune in to the Sony press conference to find out for sure.

It's funny as everyone will have you try and believe that it's just 'fanboys' and immature gamers that wage wars with each other over gaming brands but you would be naive to think that those mentalities don't exist in the executive boardrooms of Sony & MS... Though they may play all best-buddys for the media, there is a strong desire to whoop the ass of the competitors internally.

Edit - this wasn't aimed at you Sammy, just sayin

@Dodoo I agree. Im sure they behave like civilised guys but it sounds a bit like in politics and lots of fools get into it

Aw that's so sweet. Wish all gamers just got along and chuck out the silly idea of console wars. Let's just enjoy the best games on any platform. Viva le gamer! Whatever that means!

I hope everyone sees this and respects the class act that is Jack Tretton. This is how to be a proper PlayStation fan, by having friendly consideration and not toxic hate towards your fellow Xbox fans. #schooledByJack
