This shouldn't come as a surprise. Folks at Sony own Nintendo game machines. They own the Xbox 360, too. And the same is true of those companies, too. So, it's no shocker that Shuhei Yoshida, the president of Sony Computer Entertainment's Worldwide Studies, just got a Wii U. It's also no shocker that he loves PlayStation. Like, duh!
Yoshida put his Nintendo ID on Twitter ("ShuYoshida") and has been accepting friend requests and chatting to players about his and their Wii U experience. Don't think Yoshida is just screwing around with the Wii U; perhaps, this is how he and Sony could be sizing up their competition.
But, in what must be the best—if not most humorous—Miiverse trolling so far, Yoshida wrote, "I *heart* PS" in the Nintendo Land Plaza. He added a smiley face and "yosp", which is also his Twitter handle.
This is trolling—it's not mean spirited trolling, and it's actually kinda cute—but trolling is trolling. Maybe Nintendo of America honcho Reggie Fils-Aime should retaliate? You know, go on to the PlayStation Blog, write, "Nintendo4Eva". I would've suggested PlayStation Home, but we know how that turned out.
