And that it isn't it.

You expect any company to come out and say "Obviously our competition is a huge threat. We're counting on our fans to buy our product on faith and honestly that faith could go either way."

Don't be naive.

Considering they're selling really well I'd say that they were right.

Every time you point out that something is an opinion Jesus shoots a kitten in the face.

To be confident in your product is one thing, but to say that your most direct competitor isn't a threat is just nonsense.

So the PS4 selling more in the US and UK, Microsoft's two biggest markets, isn't posing a threat? MS owned the US and UK markets with the 360 and they have now lost those markets to the PS4. I'd say that's a huge threat.

They're selling extremely well. Just because someone else is selling extremely well doesn't mean they're a big threat. Did you expect a monopoly or something?

Actually I have seen companies do this all the time. I can't even tell you how many times apple has said they are not concerned about their market share vs. PCs. How about nintendo a couple months back saying they were not concerned about the PS4 or X1?

It's just a PR thing, companies don't want to come off seeming to be super aggressive about grabbing market share. They want to come off sounding like it's all about making the customer happy and sales are a distance after thought. Sure it's a bunch of BS, but hey that's PR for ya :)
