Sony's Shuhei Yoshida Responds to PS4 'meh' comment from Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime

Yesterday Nintendo tried to get into the next-gen crossfire. In an interview with IGN, Reggie Fils-Aime of Nintendo replied with "I'm allowed to say 'meh'" in regards to the Xbox One and the Playstation 4 launch lineup.

While one may think this would anger Sony and Microsoft (like Nintendo has any room to talk, right?), Shuhei Yoshida of Sony replied very kindly on Twitter.

The story is too old to be commented.

Shuhei Yoshida has got class. That's a certainty. He puts other execs to shame with his willingness to engage with the public, devilish sense of humour and frankness. Sony couldn't ask for a better representative.

At least he answered in a peaceful way.

He could just replied by saying : "How many Super Mario games and HD remakes will you come before Christmas ?"

less than GOW and other ps2 collections thats for sure.

abzdine1909d ago

you are the classiest individual.

Yoshida: thanks, but I'm only the 2nd :)

who is first? Emperor KAZ?

gaffyh1909d ago

@lopez - Are you saying there are more GOW games than Mario games? LOL.

solidjun51908d ago

"less than GOW and other ps2 collections thats for sure."

Really? You must be joking.

AngryTypingGuy1908d ago (Edited 1908d ago )

He wouldn't have anything to gain by trashing Reggie. Reggie and Yoshida both know that the Wii U is lame compared to the other two. It's for the kiddies and hardcore Nintendo guys. Barely anyone will say "should I buy a PS4 or a Wii U?". It just won't happen, it's between PS4 and Xbox One.

I wish Nintendo would become a third party company for consoles and stick to handhelds for hardware, an area where they are dominant. I would love to play Mario and Zelda on my PS4!

SmokingMonkey1908d ago

They should have released 'Meh"troid instead of Donkey Kong.

I kid, I love Nintendo as much as the next guy.

Reggie, you woke up the beast.

Watch your back.

maniacmayhem1909d ago

Holy crap, that first one made me spit out my soda!

His comment is kind, but strangely hits hard lol.

jcnba281909d ago

You fanboys are hilarious. Need I remind you that Sony has taken way more jabs at Nintendo than visa versa?

Sony sure are showing their class in these articles huh?

theshonen88991909d ago

They aren't talking about Sony, they're talking about Shuhei Yoshida.

Army_of_Darkness1909d ago

still seems classy considering both remarks are almost accurate ;-)

Give a kid a DS and they will be occupied for a while.
Wii U touch screen.. well we all know that ain't anything to brag about.

nosferatuzodd1908d ago

leave it to a xbox fanboy to talk when his company are more crooked than snake with Scoliosis

solidjun51908d ago

awww, the butthurt is strong with this one. lol.

joeorc1908d ago


Oh' but that's being such a class act , and doing it in a cute way right?

at least it was unique right?

ShinMaster1908d ago

That second link is actually kinda true. Especially Vita+PS4.
I don't see what you're complaining about. Or did you find it mean? :(

Also, people are talking about Shuhei, not Sony as a whole. But please continue to bring up the past.

I agree about Shuhei.... the other Sony exec that I have a lot of respect for is Jack Tretton. In my opinion, MS (and Nintendo execs) always come off as smarmy and obnoxious.

negative1908d ago

Oh wait a second - now you are all going to suckle on the teet of this poor man???

There is no end to the fanboy madness!!!!

solidjun51908d ago

suckle the teet?
shut up. We just said it was a class act.

"There is no end to the fanboy madness!!!!"
Well as long as you're here, i guess that's true.

'Near' but not 'completely impossible' ...

BeAGamer1909d ago

"After 2DS, big N might need Wii-Cube with Super #meh rio"


Snookies121909d ago (Edited 1909d ago )

Lol, I can't help but like him. I feel like Reggie could come up to my face and cuss me out, and I'd still like the guy. It's weird...

Donnieboi1909d ago

I don't know if Shuhei meant it literally. I think he was just taking the high ground by saying something nice.

SonyPS41909d ago

He likely didn't. He just handled it well.

Parapraxis1909d ago

Reggie has been a dick lately.

FamilyGuy1908d ago

When was he not? o.O

I like Nintendo but I've never liked Reggie.
He seems arrogant like he bully small kids in school or something lol.

TheDivine1909d ago

Reggie's a friggin tool, I hate him being the face of Nin America. He's like a lame ass corporate guy who tries to be hip, reminds me of my dad if he were to try selling me a console.

His comment wasn't anything bad or disrespectful though. Its the truth for me too, both consoles launches are weak as hell as was the WiiU. The only games I'm hyped for are FF15 which is years away, KH3 which is years away, and Quantum Break which looks a-m-m-m-m-MAZING! X and SMT x Fire Emblem also have me super excited. None are really launch titles though. Ps4 has the weakest lineup but its the console that I have the most faith in to build a dope library, even if it takes three years to get rolling I know it will eventually hit its stride.

"He's like a lame ass corporate guy who tries to be hip, reminds me of my dad if he were to try selling me a console."

Congratulations, you finally figured it out.

JackOfAllBlades1909d ago

I freaking love Shu! He's the best! No homo
