Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) chief Shuhei Yoshida has reacted to the recent promotion of Phil Spencer to head of Microsoft’s Xbox division.

Writing on Twitter (via DanShoHsu) Yoshida-san commented, “It proves Microsoft is smart. He’s the most human guy there.”

This isn’t the first time the executive has extended his congratulations to Microsoft, having done so on the launch of Xbox One back in November.

As head of Worldwide Studios, Yoshida-san has a number of high-profile first-party Sony developers under his wing, including Naughty Dog, SCE Santa Monica Studio, Sucker Punch Productions, Team ICO and Polyphony Digital.
