There's a poll coming so hold your horses please.
So we've seen that Xb one and PS4 are selling within each other's margin for error. Anyone who says 61K vs 56K isn't a virtual tie doesn't really understand how this site works. But of course bragging rights are always a bit of fun.
We've seen the Titanfall effect and we've seen MS adjust its pricing to be more competetive. And both of these things have made Xb one competetive with PS4 in the USA.
I think Sony will be slow to drop PS4 price. While Sony isn;t solely dependant on PS4 for future profits, it is important for PS4 to be decently profitable. and PS4 is in a position that Sony never needs to drop the PS4 price to go into a loss leader territory, once PS4 gets out of the current loss leader situation of course.
Despite PS4 doing better than Xb one so far, USA still likes Xbox.
Games sell consoles, and the games Xbox offers the US consumer are games they like. Sony might come up with the proverbial "Halo killer" but they probably won't.
So all this adds up to Xb one being in a strong competetive position in the USA. But will it actually overcome the renewed popularity of PS4?
PS4 has a lot going for it, there's no need to go into detail, the advantages of PS4 are well known, and it's obvious the gaming public have recognised all the things Sony has done right, and they've rewarded Sony with the early generation lead in the USA. But it's only a 10% lead, so not much of a lead.
I'm voting right down the middle: it's possible.
