    Yeah Xbox One releases before PS4 in my country. So I don't think there's an advantage at all.

    Price? Likely.

    They're releasing almost around the same time, so I don't think it's really an advantage. As others have said... the price is a big factor here... especially for the parents buying their kids these consoles.

    They did, but then everything got delayed. Price will definitely help them out at launch no doubt.

    yea but if you add to the price that it's coming out before the Xbox One, than yes, it's a pretty big advantage.

    They would only have an advantage if you could go into any store that sells video games on week one and just buy the console with no pre-order. They are all sold out weather it had a week advantage or not so the week doesnt matter at all.

    Advantage?
    Yes.
    Any time PS4 has to sell before MS is a good thing even if it is just a week.

    Big advantage that makes any real difference?
    No, not really.
    The people that buy day one have they're minds set well before hand.

    Dammit....I voted yes and I had a brain fart that the X1 comes out like 7 days or whatever after the PS4.

    So, no....I don't think that short of a time frame difference makes a difference. I think there are a few other factors that do though: price, exclusives, previous gen games, stability and others.

    Isn't war technically a race?

    Unless the Americans are running it, in which case there's a 40 minute time limit to a race...

    In Ireland it's the opposite way around, but the majority I've spoken to have made up their minds already - overwhelming in favour of the PlayStation 4. Couple that with the fact its specs are slightly superior and it's €100 cheaper a week doesn't seem too long to wait. Also, heaps of people will be waitin' for Christmas so it makes no odds to them!

    Not really. A week isn't going to make much of a difference. The price might help the PS4 though.

    Yes I would say yes because when Timmy goes to best buy to look at consoles the ps4 will also be a choice

    Need to take in to consideration that it only comes out before the Xbox One in the US. The rest of the world combined is a bigger population and for the majority of the world the Xbox One comes out first. So in all reality it won't really matter as it'll most likely offset itself.

    The two launch so close to each other that I wouldn't say they had an advantage. I think more important is the fact Sony won't have the penalties they had to carry at launch last time. They won't be releasing a harder to use platform a year late with a higher price and a smaller library.

    No they do not, they have the advantage that the Xbox One has become a joke.

    Honestly i don't think Either Date or Price would give an advantage for one over the other. The iPhone-iPad are very expensive than the competition and not the best when it comes to Specs. but yet they sell the most Because the Appstore is better than the playmarket.
