Why did Microsoft go first again?

Going first at game shows let's you boast about what you have, sure I get that, but exclusives would be exclusives regardless of when you have the presentation.

After seeing Microsoft's presentation, Sony could really kill off the rivalry on this gen by doing two things (which are unlikely still).
1 launch a SKU that has a 2TB HDD
2 launch said SKU cheaper than the Xbox One or the same price.

Now this would only work if the Playstation 4 has made big profit so far. They wouldn't be a loss leader, they would simply be cutting their profits short term until they started selling off all the new SKUs, which would happen fairly swiftly.

Going 2nd at Gamescon is such a huge advantage, I don't know why Microsoft went 1st again.

They don't make these things up on the spot. These presentations are planned ahead of time. It's not like they're gonna look at ms and change up their format last minute.

Apparently Sony did just that when Microsoft took all the backlash for the DRM/Internet checks and caused Sony to backpedal in secret.
