Shuhei Yoshida gets his game on
Although most rabid fanboys would love to think that Sony and Nintendo's employees loathe each other so much that they can't even bring themselves to look at a system created by their rival, that obviously isn't the case. Just like common gamers, individuals within these two great companies will have access to a wide range of systems - after all, that's the only way to ensure you stay abreast of all developments within the industry.
If you needed any more proof of this, then here it is: Shuhei Yoshida, President of Worldwide Studios, Sony Computer Entertainment has a Wii U.
Got a Wii U (US version), my Nintendo ID is "ShuYoshida", pls send me a friend request so I see you on the Activity Feed.— Shuhei Yoshida (@yosp) December 4, 2012
Yoshida later admitted that he had the machine "for research" and was even gracious enough to decline making a direct comparison between his company's PS Vita and the Wii U:

By the way, don't bother trying to add him as a friend - he appears to have blown his 100 person limit already, unsurprisingly.
