Xbox boss Phil Spencer has congratulated PlayStation head Shuhei Yoshida and developer Naughty Dog on the success of their soon-to-be-released title Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. Spencer praised the final chapter of Naughty Dog's adventure series on Twitter and said that it had created yet another impressive piece of work.

Yoshida responded to the tweet and thanked Spencer for his words in a friendly exchange between the two rival console companies.

This is not the first time that the two high profile executives have exchanged pleasantries. In April, VP of publisher and developer relations at PlayStation, Adam Boyes took to Twitter to congratulate Spencer and Remedy Games on the release of Quantum Break.

Spencer had previously praised Sony for the success of the PlayStation 4 and said that one one is not a real gamer if they root for one console and hope for the other to fail.

Even as Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is slated to release on 10 May, reviews so far have hailed Naughty Dog's latest title. The highly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive could help the company seal its position as this year's console leader in the $99.6bn (£69.4bn) gaming market. The last three Uncharted games for the PlayStation 3 sold more than 21 million copies.

Ahead of Uncharted 4's launch, PlayStation also released a new grid-based mobile puzzle game called Uncharted: Fortune Hunter, which rewards gamers with multiplayer perks for the PS4 game. Just link a Sony Entertainment Network account to Fortune Hunter, and you can unlock weapon skins, special outfits, one-time-use boosters and Relics – the in-game currency.

Fortune Hunter is available as a free-to-play app on Android and iOS devices.
