Microsoft And Sony To Develop Games Together

And reports are just in that hell has frozen over...As unlikely as it may seem, Sony and Microsoft could very well be developing games together in the future. According to Tetsuhiko Yasuda, Sony Computer Entertainment Asia’s corporate executive managing director and senior vice president of Asia, Sony does not regard Xbox as a competitor. Rather, the company may even consider working with Microsoft to develop games together, Yasuda said. However judging from the article at DigitTimes, one of the leading Asian websites for Tech news who spoke to Tetsuhiko Yasuda, it is still a bit unclear if Yasuda was referring to the Asian market only when he made the comment. Either way I think the much too common view that Sony and Microsoft are these to giants that hate each other’s guts and will only settle for world domination is a bit skewed to say the least. In fact there seems to be a lot of respect and admiration between the two companies. There is room for more than one player in the console marketed, and both companies seem to agree on that. Again, we all know how easy it is to take a comment out of context, so how concrete these plans for a joint game project between Sony and Microsoft really are is impossible to tell. So don’t expect Sony and Microsoft to announce anything soon.
