Microsoft says PS4 vs. Xbox One battle will 'further grow the market'

“Competitively speaking, so far, I feel like we have a much better… more complete value prop. We do things that aren’t found on other platforms with the Kinect, a huge piece of differentiation. As I said before, the fact that we do entertainment and gaming," he said.

The executive couldn’t resist a pop at Sony though, stating his belief that Xbox One boasts a better software line-up.

“And then even if you just take gamers, hardcore gamers, gamers buy for the game. They don’t buy for stats on a spec sheet. And if you look at the games we have, according to most industry experts now, a better lineup of games.”

As Mehdi said, this is the first time Sony and Microsoft will be going head-to-head at launch. The original Xbox launched a full year after PlayStation 2, and the Xbox 360 got a 12-month start on PlayStation 3.

This generation though, both formats come out in the same month. PS4 hits the U.S. and Europe on November 15 and November 29, respectively, while Xbox One launches on November 22.
