In case you were unaware, Nintendo Switch launched today. Both Microsoft and Sony took the time to reach out and congratulate the company on a successful launch.
The official Xbox UK Twitter account went so far as to make a special mash-up graphic, combining iconic images and themes from both Nintendo and Xbox into one cool piece of art.
The official Xbox account expanded on this theme with an animated gif celebrating a “rare achievement unlocked.”
Sony’s official PlayStation Twitter account also congratulated the Big N, saying “we can’t wait to play,” followed by a heart emoji.
Xbox head Phil Spencer used his own personal account to congratulate Nintendo, saying it’s “always great when Nintendo innovates in gaming.”
Spencer recently told us his thoughts on Nintendo Switch during an episode of our Xbox podcast, Podcast unlocked.
“Anytime Nintendo brings a new product to the gaming market it’s good for all of us,” Spencer said during the episode.
If you’re a Sony or Microsoft die-hard and these tweets left a bad taste in your mouth, maybe you accidentally licked a Switch cartridge?
