Readed somewhere here that the Xbox 360 got many sales because it got released before than PS3.

That's not true at all. When the PS3 was released, just like the PS4, it didn't have many good titles until about 2 years after it got released. Noy only that, Microsoft offered 2 years of warranty on all their Xbox 360's because many crashed, Sony didn't care about their PS3's crashing, didn't do anything about the warranty or fixing them for a cheap price, they don't even receive complaints anymore.

Also Microsoft suported many indie developers and Sony blew off many of them, until Xbox Arcade became really popular, so they had to start a better PSN with more games and helping indie developers.

To me Microsoft has always been a better company that seems to care about their customers and developers, at least with these consoles. Sony has also lost many titles that were only on their consoles before, and it's probably their fault.

I don't think people consider many things when buying consoles. I'd never buy this gen consoles with only 1 year of warranty for example, not after last gen.

Because it's a better system and people know that. The PS3 has a better exclusives library than the 360, no reason to think the PS4 won't be the same way. Plus, it's $100 less, doesn't include forced camera crap, the usual reasons.

People are still forgetting that it didn't launch in japan yet. Once it does, it's gonna sell even better.

Cost of entry, and the fact that consumers, on the whole, are easily swayed by popular opinion.

more essays please. don't care. TL;DR.
I'm happy with my PS4 and its futureproofed hardware (for a console, GDDR5 is better too) and developer friendly architecture (unlike PS3). The weaker ones will eventually show its limits as years go by.


TL; DR

Xbox 360 was a lot less powerful than PS3, and still was able to play pretty match all multiplatform games and with exclusive graphics that were just as good.

In fact, I would say the Xbox 360 had the better version of a lot of multiplatform games, including Grand Theft Auto 5, which you could install and play quietly on the Xbox 360 console.

It all comes down to what I said--programming. This time PS4 and Xbox One are so similar it should not be an issue.


TL DR

It all comes down to what I said and previous posts. Since I'm right. You try too hard when my points already proved you wrong. Good luck running Shadow Fall on Wii U kiddo.

And if my post was "TL DR" then you have problems.

Also Sony never planned to introduce DRM, or restrictions on used games. .

It's quite funny though, and sad at the same time.

Microsoft basically handed the current console generation to Sony on a silver plate.
