*Reads headline*
*Reads article*

Yeah, that's not what Sony said.
*SMH*

Yeah, agree... I didn't get any "admiration" out of what they said. Respectful comments sure...admiration? Nope.

IRetrouk1817d ago

Sorry dlacy13g was relpying to first post, you are right in what you say, my point is just that headline or not sony gave micro props, its good to see company heads do this.

Army_of_Darkness1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

Well, it certainly does take the bigger person to admit their flaws and correct them, unlike the arrogant, hard headed stubborn ones...

IRetrouk1817d ago

No maybe not word for word but its there if u read the article, sony gave micro props, nothing wrong with that.

Dlacy13g1817d ago

I am not saying they didn't give MS props...but they sure as heck didn't say "we admire MS". They were respectful of the moves MS made.

"Microsoft is full of smart people, Sony says, and the company is happy to have healthy competition in North America."

"We know they're very smart people," Yoshida said. "It's great that they were able to quickly realize that some of the things they were doing were not popular, and were able to make really quick decisions to change some of those things...It shows their dedication to making Xbox One successful."

Sony does admire their decision and the people working on X1.

The publisher just used "admire" as an adjective.

LostDjinn1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

Hahaha.

Alright, you went with it so :"We know they're very smart people," Yoshida said. "It's great that they were able to quickly realize that some of the things they were doing were not popular, and" -here's where the trolling starts- "were able to make really quick decisions to change some of those things..." So what about the other unpopular things and aren't hasty decisions usually indicative of something? "It shows their dedication to making Xbox One successful" - That last part is pure troll king material.

This isn't admiration it's a good old fashioned trollin'.

If it's genuine praise, fine, great even. This however...well it speaks for itself.

How? Sony wishes good things for MS with X1. And I'm sure MS feels the same way.

Sony just wants that market share. But at the same time wants MS to be great and successful. But Sony just wants to be more great and more successful than MS.

Its called buissness, without MS buissness Sony won't have proper competition to keep them innovating and doing big things. And vice versa without Sony MS would of stuck with DRM.

I can go on forever with this but you get the point. Comments like these are good for buissness and gamers.

"How? Sony wishes good things for MS with X1. And I'm sure MS feels the same way."

Are you serious? First off he points out that MS made a bunch of hasty decisions to change only some of the problems and leave the rest. He then goes on to say "It shows their dedication to making Xbox One successful". So they took a half-a$$ed approach (by what was said(hell read the quote)) and that reflects their approach to the Xbone.

I'm not sure what you're doing after your initial questions as you just seem to be waffling. It almost seems like you need the headline to be sincere. It really is quite spooky. Tell me, why only list an xbone 180? Why not list a way MS have made Sony backtrack?

*SMH*

Edit: I thought I'd take a screenie. You know, for when you edit your post. ;)

abc12331817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

He's not trolling. Yoshida actually respects the competition, hence all the props he's given microsoft in the past, saying that they're taking Valve's steamboxes seriously, and saying that he owns 2 Wii Us.

As for a way that MS have made Sony change. There are plenty. The mistake that Sony made by allocating too much RAM to games in the PS3, leaving little for features such as cross game chat which the 360 had served as a learning point for Sony. The 360 beating the PS3 initially showed Sony that arrogance after the PS2 wasn't going to get them anywhere and things like architecture and price matter.

I don't know what article you read! But the title does fit the article. Sony did give Microsoft props for changing unpopular policies for their fanbase. Or is it that they went on from that point to then promote their product, and why it has value in their eyes?!

Dlacy13g1817d ago

Giving one respect & "props" is not the same as admiring them. Its a poor choice of words for the title and not reflective of what Sony was saying imo.

Soldierone1817d ago

The definition of Admiration is : respect and warm approval.

I think you guys are trying to say it wasn't genuine, but admiration is the right word.

Dlacy13g1817d ago (Edited 1817d ago )

@Soldierone... I think given Sony's track record on commenting many, many, many times on MS back tracking, 180's and not getting it right the first time around in both their interviews and onstage press conferences kinda points to the fact that they aren't exactly genuine about MS correcting coarse. They were more than happy to point out their mistakes and misteps... so I don't exactly think they are genuinely feeling great about MS correcting quickly. This is more PR speak than anything. They have to say that openly but again given their previous comments and shots I don't feel "admiration" is at all a correct word. There may be respect...but there is litterally no "warm approval" between either of these companies.

raWfodog1817d ago

They just used a synonym for 'respect, approval'...

admire [ədˈmaɪə]
vb (tr)
1. to regard with esteem, respect, approval, or pleased surprise

Nik_P7571817d ago

Yoshida said that not all of Sony. Yoshida is the man.

AbortMission1817d ago

He's up there with Kaz in terms of awesomeness. Unlike some other certain douches who try to put down the competition *cough* Mattrick and Reggie

chrissx1817d ago

Big ups to Sony and how they do bizness with class & maturity,unlike the "others". #Dealwithit
