Looks like Sony's PlayStation people can't resist mocking the Xbox One every time they're in a room with at least several hundred people, judging by today's presentation at Gamescom—a video game trade fair held in Germany.

Not only did Andrew House, president of Sony Computer Entertainment, reveal the PlayStation 4's release date, he also claimed that the PS4 has been "consistent" with its message and "in tune" with consumer desires. His remarks likely reference the about-face in policies that the Xbox One took, and in doing so, sets up a contrast to Sony's approach in marketing the PS4. Of course, this isn't the first time Sony has taken a shot at the Xbox One.

Edit: there's a tweet, too.
