Nintendo, PlayStation Celebrate Xbox Series Launch With Microsoft

Microsoft has been receiving messages of congratulations from across the industry surrounding the release of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, including from Nintendo and PlayStation.

Nintendo was the first to make a move, with former head Reggie Fils-Aimé sending his best wishes to Xbox boss Phil Spencer yesterday, followed by current president Doug Bowser doing the same today.

PlayStation took a more humorous approach, using a Mortal Kombat 11 "friendship" video to acknowledge the launch, with Sony's Hermen Hulst (head of PlayStation Worldwide Studios) and Shuhei Yoshida (former head of PlayStation Worldwide Studios) also sharing messages of support later on.

We wouldn't be surprised to see more of these congratulatory messages popping up over the next 24 hours, and we fully expect Phil Spencer and the Xbox team to respond in turn with the PS5 launch on November 12th.
