Those are interesting comments. Although a set of them do leave me pondering.
One person says "why congratulate Sony on this when they didn't congratulate you on Sea of thieves".
With another responding "if they congratulated them on Sea of thieves it would have been seen as a joke. Like congratulating someone for getting a D on a test".
Thoughts? Should congratulations be limited to successes, or for anything?
If you congratulate someone for something thats poorly done,... that does come off as "being mean" "playing a joke on" ect.
God, the happy-go-lucky, circle jerk, fake PR bullshit is so... ugh. I miss the 16-bit wars and the PS1 vs N64 days.
Back then they where brutal as f***... as a kid I remember looking at those slides/marketing/ads ect and just laughing.
Today Im not sure you could do the same, there would be a backlash probably.
