Is this what happens when you come out the same year as Sony?

Have anyone came out the same year as a Playstation and won? Or not received this type of backlash. I mean from the moment PS4 was announced people was going crazy. Before the DRM, BEFORE THE online always. Was I the only one noticing this? Was Xbox fans ready to jumpship, seems like it.

you do realize the 360 came out BEFORE ps3...and ps3 had such a bad price/launch that it took them almost 4 years to get out of the gutter slump?

People were going crazy when the PS4 was announced? I don't remember that. People were rather "meh" about the thing when it was announced. It was only when Microsoft revealed the Xbox One and revealed themselves to be hugely arrogant jackasses that people went crazy for the PS4.

Selling point? Why would MS use, "We sold more systems than the PS3" as a selling point?

Despite how some may feel towards the PS brand after the PS3.. PlayStation is a very big name and being that PS4 was announced before Xbox One gave it time for people to get hyped about it.

Okay.. ps3 game out a year later, at a much higher price, had a HORRIBLE launch.. and still beat 360. You aren't helping your case here.

barely. pretty even for the most part. also xbox dominates the NA market. ps3 caught up becasue it focused on all 3. Sales in Asia and europe really helped out.

all in all it's semantics.

and the ps2 vs original xbox was also semantics. ps2 had a few years on the xbox i think, more games, more support but xbox still blew up in popularity toward the end.

agian its all sematics.

Yea I do realize that.

And yes people was really excited about the Ps4 especially when they announced no DRM in FEB 20, dont see how microsoft missed that.

if you want to talk about the real winner, MS earned much more profit. the ps3 fiasco cast sony a ton of money.

why od you think sony, as a business that screwed over customers when it was doing well, (ps2 era) suddenly bends over backwards to please the gamers?

microsoft tried to move forward with its vision of gaming and sony stayed put and used that as a vantage to attack MS in the PR campaign.

in the end sony is making up for lost profit from the ps3 by staying where it's at and appeasing gamers.

don't think this is good guy sony....they are just playing an amazing PR game right now making all the right moves.

you'll see down the road when sony is making money again how much they will care about gamers.
