What the hell is this "we" s***?

The topic creator is a PS3 fanboy pretending to be an xbox fanboy who is sad about the Dewey Defeats Truman headlines.

I'm not sure what is more pathetic, people like the topic creator or those of us who see it for what it is. It's embarrassing to see such a skewed sense of.. I'm not even sure what it is.
Nobody expects the Sarlacc Pit.

Because Europe and Japan. Sony was/is the God of Mammon there. You had people buying the PS3 merely on the possibility that DMC, Tekken, et all were to be exclusive. Then you had the Killzone hype and RLoD.

After the success of the Wii, Sony was always going to be second, unless Microsoft could convince Europe. But like a sordid love triangle in a cheap soap opera, Microsoft had an American wife, a Japanese Mistress, and a European stalker it strings along, but doesn't really give a crap about.

We lost to ****ing Playstation?

1) The Sony brand is still remarkably strong. And this is evident by the fact that even with one of the worst console launches for a major manufacturer, Sony managed to pull it together and fall only 24 million units behind the market leader. By contrast, Sony eclipsed their competitors by a range of 80-90 million units with both the Playstation and the Playstation 2 (depending upon which consoles you are comparing them to). It isn't as if people suddenly hated the Playstation brand. It is a very strong global brand. People just couldn't get on board with the horrible pricing strategy. Katuragi was very incorrect about how willing consumers would be to save money and work over time just for a video game machine.

2) I can tell you easily how Microsoft lost consumer favor.

- Dramatic decrease in first party content
- Continual loss of exclusives
- Heavy focus on non-gaming services for Xbox Live rather than on game development
- Heavy focus on the Kinect rather than on core game development
