Because people aren't idiots and figured out real quick that they can buy a more powerful console for less money.
Reviews? Polls? Sales? Resolution? FPS? Nothing matters now except for what the competition does not have.

There are a lot of reasons as to why it's behind, there isn't a single reason that explains the difference right now.


Yeah there is. People like the PS4 better. Simple as that.


QFT.
There are multiple reasons why the Xbox One is lagging behind and the PS4 is just running ahead, not just the one.

And there as reasons as to why they like the PS4 better, such as the price, the forced kinect, DRM, etc
It's not simply "because".

And not because "LOLZ PS4 HAZ MOAR POWERZ."


I have never talked that way--but that's why I purchased my PS4 after I purchased my X1.

I realize my reason may be a minority one, but when you add the other things you mentioned

"Bad business practices, taking their consumers for idiots, Kinect, 180s (thank God for these though) I have no trust in MS' Xbone."

I believe all those are the reasons. It is a cumulative effect.


Gotta agree that it's never just one thing... It's usually most things with different people with varying degrees of importance lent to specific issues depending on their personal impact on said person

It's because they haven't apologized yet and even the most patriotic Americans are saying NOOOO

Thanks for this link.

Yeah, I know it's old, but I didn't have this one.
Microsoft Xbox One quote from May 2013 "We purposefully did not target the highest end graphics. We targeted it more as a broad entertainment player."

Why do you need it? Suing MS for lying to you about the Kinect?
Thanks for the response and have a blessed day.

I have no trust in MS' Xbone.

I could care less about power.

That's my thoughts anyways.


Anyone else agree/disagree?


Its all of the above and nobody wanted to pay $100 to get something lesser. Nobody wants to as much as something else to get something lesser. Nobody would buy a Honda Accord if it sold as much as an Audi
