Remember when MS didn't view the PS4 as a threat?

In terms of total assets Sony is currently over MS..

In terms of total sales Sony is currently over MS..



Neither company can afford to openly say "this company is a threat to us"... if they did they would make themselves look weak...

Both are capable of doing great things but right now we can hardly know who is the bigger threat for this generations console war. It's still really early in the race to start making bets for who passes into the winner's circle first.

Lol at the comment at the top:
" 'Even better, it believes that the PS4′s graphics RAM will run hotter, besides not being as optimized as the Xbox One.'

All I can think of is how Nelson tried to shut down Angry Joe by asking him "Are you a developer? Do you know?" when asked about disabling the 24 hour check-in. Well, you're not a developer on the PS4 are you, Nelson. Checkmate, you f***ing t***."

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?


Sure the X1 is selling well, but it could be selling even BETTER if the PS4 wasn't in the picture. The PS4 is stealing sales from MS, which is evident in the fact that the PS4 is outselling the X1 in the two regions where MS had a stranglehold last gen. The US and UK markets were really the only places that MS had an advantage and that is now gone.

So explain to me how one company stealing sales in another company's primary territory is not a huge threat.

Like I said, are you expecting a monopoly here?

Sure they'd be doing better if they had no competition, but that's never going to happen. I would consider the competition to be a huge threat if it was making them sell poorly, but it's not. They're still selling extremely well so the threat isn't that big.
