Xbox and PlayStation bosses hug it out before E3 2014 showdown

PS4 and Xbox One will lock horns in a bloody death gauntlet in Los Angeles tonight, as both sides prepare to unveil their E3 2014 conferences. That hasn’t stopped Microsoft’s Phil Spencer and former PlayStation boss Jack Tretton from sharing in a hug. Aww.

The photo was taken by Geoff Keighley, as brought to our attention by Mike Bowden. Cheers Mike!

Can you feel the love?

    One of them walks away with a sign that says “Kick me” on their back.

    Misleading, right? I thought the new guy was stepping up, buliding a name for himself.

    @Legendaryboss The man’s seat is still warm. Doesn’t dilute the brilliance of the photo.

    Big fan of both Jack and Phil. So nice to see the likes of Don Mattrick and John Schappert pushed to the sidelines (the cunts).

    Honestly, this kind of stuff is actually kinda inspiring, IMHO. Would much prefer to work in an industry with these two at the top than the nightmare that was John & Don.

    @3 both.

    Kind of makes me think of UFC. They’ll pound the shit out of each other in the octagon and then Joe Rogan comes in with a mic and they are like “Oh I just love this guy, he’s a hell of a fighter, gimme a hug bro.”

    Can’t wait until the gloves come off though, and by gloves I mean game reveals.
