    Usually a company that is in competition with another company doesn't tend to show interest in what another company (Sony) is doing. What we see in that article is Microsoft showing unusual interest in what Sony is planning on doing. Why would a company show that interest towards another company they are in competition with? because of feeling slightly threatened. If the rumors hold any truth to what Microsoft plans on doing with their next console, then these comments toward Sony makes perfect sense.

    It's just regular PR stuff with your usual journalism with a twist.. You can't expect someone from MS to give much praise to a competitors product.

    You made a reference to MS being threatened, when in reality the guy was probably asked about what he thought about Sony's event on the 20th. Journalist have a way of twisting these things around. It's all part of the game though.

    Even if he was asked about the 20th he should have said no comment or something. Simple and effective.
    It's funny that in this day in age people can steal as long as they have a reason too. Even if that reason is created by the thieves themselves.

    Even the LA Times is starting to cover the PS4 announcement story.. So much for the MS exec's lack of faith.

    Microsoft must be worried sick at the thought of the PS4 reveal.

    Let's face the facts. The 360 was selling better than the PS3 because Microsoft launched the 360 first. Everyone coming in to this gen was looking forward to the PS3 but quickly turned their attention to the 360 because it was the first HD console and a great console. The PS3 would have outsold the 360 from the get go if it was released first.

    Now Microsoft doesn't have that advantage. From what we know, the PS4 is launching before the 720. This gen is going to be fun.

    Also Sony launched PS3 at a price outside the general consumers comfort zone. But MS didnt beat Sony so much as Sony beat Sony. MS just rode on the coat tails of Sony's mistakes. But if rumors are true then Sony is correcting each of those mistakes with the PS4.

    Yep. That's the story of this gen in a nutshell.

But other than that..? I see nothing special thus far.
    I am sure they will do same thing this gen.

    They would get timed exclusives and people will buy next gen, a year after, publisher announces port to PS4, and MS buys less timed exclusives. Too late for those who bought Xbox already...

    Nope they will be completely shelled by all media formats for the reveal. They won't know about it until after it releases.

    I did catch that too, but I expected that since there's always PS ads on there.

    So I guess that whole Xbox 360 RROD fiasco never really happened? Or did it just not effect consumer opinion and purchases?

    MS had their own share of mistakes which crippled 360 sales for the first 3 years. RROD, DVD only, no built in hard drive, no HDMI, no Wifi.... Despite this and a PS3 price drop within the first year Sony still hasn't been able to catch back up more than 6 years later. The truth is MS beat Sony at their own game. MS got the 3rd party developer support and for a good 5 years the 360 version of multiplatform games looked and played better. MS simply beat Sony, despite MS's own inferiorly equipped and often failing RROD systems.

    I don't think that actually crippled their sales but it did piss off a lot of people.

    December 2006 to June 2007 the 360 only sold 1.6 million consoles, by far the worst 6 months of any console this generation. Sony sold about 4.1 million PS3's in the same time frame, and sold those systems at the $500-$600 price.


    Yeah, the RROD issue killed 360 sales for a good year. Sony was within 4 million of 360 total sales at the beginning of 2008 and outselling the 360 world wide by a good 2 million systems per year. It wasn't until MS got the RROD issue fixed in 2008 that sales really started picking up for them.

    Maybe the MS Exec should "caution" Sony for not creating such a hype train that is bandwagoned worldwide!
