sony fans right now
Not really.. there are always one or two who are OTT but most of us are quite normal :) I personally believed Sony did have a chance of selling more, but only if they could ship enough... We know sony is going for more markets rather than fewer markets and shipping more, and this is obviously a result of that. As people have said, we dont know if thats a good idea or a bad idea, we will have to see. I think Sony believes locking down these other countries before MS even has a chance to launch is more important than matching box for box in the USA... but the validity of that will depend on how close the PS4 numbers in the USA are.
We know they still have sold more consoles in the USA than MS, and we know its over 600 odd k. We know the worldwide total gap increased based on both companies numbers... so I guess it depends on how important "winning" USA is.. or if Sony just equal MS... and win mostly everywhere else.
January is key imo, if Sony still does not have the capacity to outship to the USA, I think that would be a mistake and they could lose some momentum in the USA. It's certainly fun to see how both companies approach this though :)
