As Xbox gobbles up publishers and studios like nobody's business, we're all left wondering what the end game is. The company has expressed that it has Amazon and Google in its sights, rather than Sony, and Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford seems to agree that Microsoft doesn't want to directly compete with Sony.

In a series of tweets, Pitchford expressed his opinion on Microsoft vs. Sony. Essentially, he thinks Microsoft simply wants their software wherever they can get it.

In this day and age, it may well be true that Microsoft doesn't see Sony as a main competitor. After all, Xbox Boss Phil Spencer recently said that he trusts both Sony and Nintendo in the gaming space.

However, we think it's a bit of a stretch to say they've never been competitors. Microsoft got into the console business to essentially prevent Sony from 'dominating the living room', and there's always been some rivalry there.

Do you think Xbox still sees PlayStation as a huge competitor? Let us know below.
