Also remember the ps4 launched in more markets so that alone would have given them a big plus.
Can we, once and for all, forget this bullshit?
It is neither Sony nor Microsoft that sells consoles to end users. It's shops. And there were/still are shops all over the world that sold/sell those. Regardless of whether Sony or Microsoft have an office in a particular country. Given that PS4s were actually sold out in the initial weeks in many European markets, there actually were MORE markets the XBox1 was available than the PS4.
