Ms was like your best friend when they drink too much at a party and they start showing out. Once you smack the **** out of them (e3 reaction), they settle down, make some adjustments and get cool again.

Not quite.

Comparing the price of the X1 and PS3, the X1 costs $500, while Sony's system was priced close to $700 (after adjusting for inflation). Comparing the 360 to the PS3, the 360 was $465 (after adjusting for inflation), while the PS3 was $235 more...not the $100 more the X1 is (even ignoring inflation, it was still $200 more).

At E3 2006 (and the ensuing months), Sony was extremely cocky, with comments like, "People will get an extra job to pay for our system." This cockiness didn't end until several months after launch, much to the amusement of the gaming press: http://www.engadget.com/2007/02/09/ce-oh-no-he-didnt-part-xxiv-jack-tretton-wants-to-give-you/

Microsoft was cocky ("Deal with it"), but this cockiness pretty much ended by mid-July. At the same time, while Sony kept pretty much everything about the PS3 people mocked (like the price, Sixaxis, etc.), the only complaint Microsoft didn't reverse was the inclusion of Kinect (ironically, people made fun of them for reversing their policies to what their consumers wanted...for some reason...).


Boom


I don't think the cockyness ended there sorry but the last press release essentially saying we, gamer, are to stupid to understand the xbox one says they're still quite cocky.

Niet.

In the US it sold more in 5 weeks than the PS3 did in 12 months...with 7 official price drops.

As for One it will exceed the 360s first 12 months this month. Base on last months sales, Xbone at $500 sold better than the 360 did in February 2008 at an average of $335, but not as well as 360 did in February 2009.

So basically in a tower formation

360 Year 4
Xbox One so far >
360 Year 3
PS3 Year 3
360 Year 2
PS3 Year 2
360 Year 1
PS3 Year 1

Yes. Their entire reveal shows how cocky they got.

I does have Kinect. I'm sure Sony would have charged more if each console was forced to buy a camera and move controller(s)

No, not even close. Microsoft never had the market domination Sony enjoyed with the PS2. Even the Wii didn't get close to the level of the PS2.

Microsoft also continues to grow their console base. It's still a bit early but it looks like the XB1 is selling better than the 360 and this time it does it in a fully competitive market. The 360 enjoyed about a year of sales before the competition made it to market.

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
