On the left: Xbox boss Phil Spencer. On the right: former PlayStation boss Jack Tretton. Such a lovely photo. E3: where console war turns into console peace.
I approve! This proves that being a gamer and enjoying the industry as a whole is better then being a fanboy to one brand or company.
Mean while the fanboys take a glimpse into the real world when they see this pic of these two together. Fanboys be like http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/PvKS... This is absolutely normal to me.
Lol. This is so cool. Its how it should be. Counting down to MS conference. So hyped.
That's surprising, coming from the clown who made these statments: "Anyone who thinks Microsoft would remove the Kinect is an IDIOT!" "Don Mattrick controlled everything like a dictator, Phil is our savior." Because in the real world, Corporations make decisions via comitee not bypassed by one, all powerful executive. Take baby steps into reality, my son. :) Anyway, now let Phil do this with an actual Sony executive, then we're talking
What gunna happen if Jack going "left" someday, would fanboys be okay?
@Mighty "Anyone who thinks Microsoft would remove the Kinect is an IDIOT!" Nice play on words I don't remember saying or calling anyone an idiot. And did I admit twice to you that I was DEAD wrong about Kinect not being taken out? http://n4g.com/comments/red... Yeah I did and this is the 3rd time you need a serious dose of memory pills. "Don Mattrick controlled everything like a dictator, Phil is our savior." Yeah I don't recall saying that. But Xbox has been in a bad spot and well maybe just maybe Phil can save it. "Because in the real world, Corporations make decisions via comitee not bypassed by one, all powerful executive. Take baby steps into reality, my son. :)" What the.. wtf are you even talking about? That has nothing to do with anything I said. This is the 3rd time you tried coming at me and failed. How bout you go and stalk and pick fights with someone else.
@angelic You need to ignore mighty. He always makes up stuff to rile up gamers just like himself and cos issues. Just ignore him&move on dude. Nothing to see there.
@Chris Yeah hes just doing it for the attention and agrees. Its amazing how someone here can make up stuff about somebody just to rile ppl up and get everyone on his side for whatever reason. Its a very sad site to see. Whatever he's the one with the issues and super serious problems not me. Anyway glad to see Jack in made it to E3 I'll enjoy his expert analysis on everything that gets shown off. I'm pumped man I can't sleep lol.
Look at the disagrees to people who are hyped for MS conference or are happy to see both MS Sony bigwigs hanging together. Give it break guys real life is not all about console preferences. I have not gone and hated on someone if he's a playstation fan. When you don't have a job since you were busy playing games and showing love for one console neither sony nor ms will come and feed you.
@MightyNoX Oh snap. Mighty you got him on the ropes.. #rekt
A photo says nothing. A big smile on the face but you can not see inside they're heads. Inside they're heads they mus be thinking I can do second face no problem.
i swear they're holding daggers inside their pockets.
What is wrong with you guys, can't even go one day without arguing about stupid things. The industry actually has a lot of respect for each other, lots of hard work just to get a game created let alone designing and coming out with new hardware. Isn't N4G about our interest in this hobby, so why do so many refuse to get along with others?
Wow, its just competition why would just hate each other? and the console war can be important to who ever, Would we say the same for sports team fans are just as pointless in that case. Age old argument about preference.
Agreed way better than being a aggressive raging little fanboy.
Wow Chris and Angelic stop lecturing people about being fanboys. You are two of the biggest Xbox Fanboys on this sight. Comment on the article for crying out loud. On topic good to see when these guys happen upon each other they can act like adults for a photo op.
This picture brings a tear to my little gamer eye. Take a moment and soak this in guys.
Even in a positive article people still can't refrain from arguing and disagrees.. gamers...
It's like you've always thought that they hate each other ...of course they ALL get along just fine, it always was rather friendly competition in this industry.
I never said they hated each other. I was just happy to see it. A rarity. Isn't it ironic? Don't ya think? Its like raiiiiiiiiinnn...... :)
I will miss uncle jack for sure but if he is happy than so are his fans. Also phil spencer is such a cool dude, hopefully xbox one brand will be able to build up some positive momentum at E3 stop hating be gamers not fanboys peace out enjoy today
Thanks, you too. Be easy.
Well said man.
console wars are made by fanboys for fanboys.
Will he join Xbox
Haha and here on n4g fanboys are at each other's throats. Sony and MS have jointly done many business dealings together all the way from using selling windows o/s on Sony notebooks. can't wait for later today to check out the conferences. MS's countdown is shown on xbox how about Sony? Link for countdown?
Microsoft and Sony have done a tremendous amount for each other and the competition between them is what's really making each other better. I don't know why everybody thinks this is some sort of "Game of Thrones", the two companies have always maintained at least a modicum of professional integrity and respect for each other. Yes the mouthpieces occasionally rifle off at each other, but it's more to poke fun at then seriously insult one another.
Well said +bubbs
Spencer asking Jack for advice.
http://www.justphotographer... *Go Away Troll*
Oh so Phil is taking mic throwing lessons from Jack. Thats pretty cool.
I don't get the disagrees... Is asking for advice a bad thing now? Or is this a poor attempt at trolling?
I thought the same thing people need to seriously chill unlike fanboys these companies do actually have working relationships so who are fanboy fighting on behalf of ?????
This is so awesome. This is what gaming community really should be about. Sure we might have different preferences but when it comes down to it we are all gamers that all want the same thing, GAMES...
Yet so far half the people here disagreed with you. Sad.
"Former Console Enemies Now Console BFFs" Only Kotaku lol.
only 9.5 hours to go... and then it's going to be: http://www.reactiongifs.com... looking forward to all of the presentations.
"Console enemies". Oh how they insult our intelligence, in the name of hits. That aside, I'll be in the air during Microsoft's conference :(
Really.... This is normal.. they aren't or never were enemies. What has the world come too D:
I don't think they were ever enemies. I like to think they alway respected each side for what they did and going through much of the same stuff they do. Most of the console "hate" is between the fans.
"bastards photoshopped me out!" Iwata
I too would want to pick the mans brain that almost single handedly destroyed my company
Yeah, because that totally happened!
They were probably always friends. It's like Micheal Jordan and Charles Barkley. On court it's all buisness.
It's just PR guys. *facepalm* Isn't that obvious??? It's just M$ playing the nice guy.
And for some reason I've never really liked either of these guys. Tretton always seemed to me to be a guy who really wasn't into it and was just putting on an act the whole time. He had no real passion for this industry. And Spencer just has a look that reminds you of the bully jock from high school. Can't wait to see what happens today.
Wow surprising photo but nice
He might be looking for a job...lol
Here is what a PC/PS4/X1/Wii U fanboy meeting would look like
The art of War. Keep your friend close, but keep your enemy closer. Actually, Phil Spencer is also good friend with Reggie from Nintendo. Beyond the politics of gaming war, believe it or not, people of opposing company can be friend. I even saw Bill Gates and Steve Jobs on stage together and talk for a good hour.
I'd say they'd have more of a reason to be "BFF's" now that they have something to unify against. The rising popularity of Phone/Tablet games.
Is it possible for so much awesome to be contained in one photo?
I think they make a lovely couple and I wish Jack and Phil (went up the hill) The best of luck in their relationship. And I will happily provide a character reference if they indeed want to adopt an Asian, Caucasian or Afro Caribbean baby.
Just cause you work/worked for a rival company does not stop mutual friendships. Yes, it's a business war. But the people in the war have their own minds.
I wish more people would understand that it IS a war. What's more: it was started by gaming companies, not gamers. In any case, what they do in their off time is up to them. It's not like it really affects our views on the companies involved, does it? Generally, we dislike the companies these guys work for, not the guys themselves (except when they lie or act like they know stuff they don't). And it doesn't make sense for them to be enemies throughout, since there's a chance they could be coworkers at any time.
And FANBOYS everywhere having a heart attack LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!
2 rich guys hanging out, nothing to see here.
Can't believe Jack left Sony. He was a legend.
Its all about the money bra, if MS gave you a blank check what would you do ?
... you people find it hard to believe these people can get along outside the office?
Nice pic, lets see what happens in another year or so when one or both is at Nintendo, Sega, EA. wherever. Then they'll be rivals again. these guys are like Sports Team managers, couple years here, then couple more over there, they only wear the team jacket while theyre there then its on to the next. Enjoy it while it lasts boys.
Microsoft and Sony were never enemies. Only their fans always hated each other. Their hatred towards each other is bigger than Kazuya and Heihachi.
