Personally, for me it doesn't matter who announces first, but more so who offers the better product for me that matters. If the next console from MS does not appeal to me (ie: if it's more of what we've been getting the past 3 years on the 360) then I just simply won't buy it. Just because it's a next gen console that comes out first, does not mean that it instantly gets my business.

My favorite part was the line "Why go first when your competitors can look at your specification and come up with something better?"
But all I heard was "We have no interesting ideas and want to see what MS has before we slap something together at the last minute that's exactly the same but less functional, just like we did with the Sixaxis."
