In a recent interview with MCV UK, Xbox Head of Marketing Albert Penello revealed he admires the Playstation 4 Pro by saying he was impressed with it that it even “surprised” him. Penello stated..
“I give them a lot of credit for what they did there, but for me, the most interesting observation is that we both arrived at a similar idea even if the execution is slightly different.
“This business tends to diverge and converge in interesting ways, and obviously we don’t know what they’re doing. We don’t have insight into what their plans are, so when they announced the Pro, I was as surprised as anybody else was.”
“They had a different idea in mind for what they wanted to build, so in retrospect it may seem like we were reacting to what they were doing. But people in the business know that this has been in the works for years, and we have to lock the specs years in advance.”
