Stating that the Sony event gave them a clear idea of what they have done with the new PlayStation 5, he added that it helped them focus on what they have been able to achieve with the Xbox Series X.

He further said, “I thought they (Sony) do what they do very well and they did that, but when I think about the position that we're in, with the games that we're going to be able to show and how they're going to show up, and the hardware advantage that we have, I think we're in a very good position.”
