Hey guys, I'm generally a Nintendo gamer now-a-days (though I only had a 360 last gen), so I haven't really been keeping up with the other two consoles much, but, from what I can tell, Sony seems to be demolishing Microsoft here.

I find this a little odd, since, to me, it seems like it was sony who made false promises. From what I can remember, people after last year's E3 had assumed that XB1 was about entertainment whereas Sony focused on the core gamer's wished. However, more than half a year in, to me it seems like XB1 has just as many if not more games than PS4. I don't notice that big of a quality gap as had been claimed at all.

So why has XB1 failed to sell as much? Was the price way too high for people? Or do first impressions of something matter this much?

Because the PS4 is a superior console, costs less and because MS exclusives (the ones available atm) are mediocre at best.

The PS4 is factually a stronger system, and was 20% cheaper for the first year.

Subjectively

Xbox one tried to give us Games For Windows Live, the Console, and it upset a lot of 360 owners into going to other mediums, PC, Nintendo or PS4, The Xbox One has done nothing but repeal policies (Kinect Mandatory, DRM DRM DRM, Kinect Bundled, always oneline), while it would of been a fine console had it just not tried to enslave it's userbase.

PS4 has more powerful hardware, launched cheaper, and many people hold a grudge from the initial Xbox One reveal.

Oohh you so mad...

The better console is selling more than the worse console. You can't explain that.

Let it sell. people are stupid, and when the games come, there isn't anything on Ps4 to play. They will all collect dust or be traded in. that's if Sony can even hold out that long. You know, money troubles and all.
