'We should all be celebrating a healthy industry.'

With Microsoft and Sony currently engaged in the next generation of a furious console war that started with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in 2005-06, there’s tons of fanboy hate and snide remarks made by company executives to go around. Now, speaking to Reddit, reports OXM, Microsoft’s ‘Major Nelson’ has lauded PS4’s success, and called for an end to the online hate around both the machines.

“Both new platforms are off to a great start,” he wrote. “We all should be celebrating a healthy vibrant industry. Sony has done a good job and they should be commended. The hate that infects gaming in the online space needs to go away.”

“Sony will sell a ton,” he added. “We will sell a ton. The industry is doing well…and consumers have choice.”

This comes on the heels of comments made by Microsoft’s Phil Spencer, where he proclaimed nothing but respect for both Sony and Nintendo and what they bring to the table. It’s a far cry from the arrogance Microsoft was exhibiting less than a year ago following the disastrous reveal of the Xbox One, but it’s nice to see some humility.
