Microsoft Direct Of Programming Lawrence Hryb, otherwise known as Major Nelson was spotted on Reddit talking about the next-generation console war. “Both new platforms are off to a great start. We all should be celebrating a healthy, vibrant industry,” Nelson wrote. “The hate that infects gaming in the online space needs to go away. Sony will sell a ton. We will sell a ton. The industry is doing well…and consumers have choice.”
Last year, the Xbox One sold three million units and the Playstation 4 sold four million units. While both consoles have enjoyed strong success, console fanboyism still remains rampant. Perhaps this is due to the nature of video games and the people who enjoy them.
