I'd be pleasantly surprised if PS4 overtook Xbox, though. Sony will really have to improve their online capabilities for that to happen.
MS is taking the wrong road, but they'll figure it out eventually, it just depends if they make any changes before launch due to all the complaints.
Required Kinect and the whole used game fyasko was the last straw for me. I hated everything about Kinect as well as many others, so now MS turns around and rams it down your throat.
M$ is on par to EA in my eyes now. Don't like Origin[Kinect]? Too bad. [previously] Want to play a used game? Better cough up the extra cash.
I honestly agree with you because the American market is more focused on shooters and the rest of the world is more focused on everything else. Because of Microsoft already solidifying itself as having the console all your friends have and how easy it is to connect with them and enjoy your favorite Call of Duty game (that they treat like an exclusive
), I think a lot of the early adopters of the Xbox One will be American and the vast majority of the world will hop over to the PS4. HOWEVER! Because of Microsoft's horrid conference, I have a feeling the tide will change, especially if they can't do epic damage control at E3, which I don't think they'll be able to.
Sony would be a complete fool to, at the very least, not make it easier to connect and interact with one another on their PlayStation Network service. I think the reason PSN is so looked-down upon here in the states is the rest of the world isn't necessarily concerned with online FPS games, ESPECIALLY Japan. Anyone wanna go check the numbers of 360 consoles sold in weeks? Months? Years? Different market, completely different attitude. But I think Sony's really trying to be the 360 of this generation.....back when the 360 was a GAMING console and didn't try to look like Windows 8 and kept showing me the "latest cool new tracks from Nicki Minaj!!!
According to VGChartz, the 360 is about 20,000 units shy of outselling the PS3 worldwide......oh wow, a whopping 20,000 units. Then again if you weren't a fanboy, why would you care?
