Sony returns the love to Microsoft; sends congrats on Xbox One launch

Microsoft and Sony have fired off their share of pot shots against each other in the current PlayStation 4-Xbox One war, but last week, Microsoft went online on Twitter and Facebook to sent their congratulations to Sony on the U.S. launch of the PS4.

Today, it was Sony's turn to send some warm wishes to Microsoft as the PlayStation Twitter feed posted its own congratulations to the folks in Redmond for the Xbox One launch in 13 markets today.

In addition, Shuhei Yoshida, the head of Sony's Worldwide Studios for PlayStation, sent his own congratulatory Twitter message directed to Microsoft Xbox executives Phil Spencer, Phil Harrison (himself a former Sony PlayStation exec) Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb and Albert Penello.

While the PlayStation Twitter feeds were friendly to the Xbox One today, the PlayStation Facebook page did not offer the same kind of greeting to Microsoft as the Xbox page did last week for the PS4 launch. Indeed, as Kotaku points out, the PlayStation Facebook account posted a rather big slam at the Xbox One on Thursday, as you can see below.

After some protests from users, the post was later deleted.
