It feels like an option is missing from the pole.....why made it seem like the PS4 went into the Holiday thinking they would win on hype alone? How did you even come to that conclusion? So because MS who was getting beat pretty bad decided to pull out ALL the stops and cut the price for the second time this year AND give away 2-4 free games Sony was arrogant because they went in with normal holiday bundles and didn't match what was seemingly a fire sale from MS? O_o???? That makes like zero sense. And that was not a shot at MS nor was the sale a bad thing that was just what it seemed to be IMO

Sony has been doing AMAZING all year long and still had a very good Nov. So why would they feel the need to go into Nov and match MS? Just to worry about winning NPD for Nov and maybe Dec? From a business and financial Sony did the right thing. They still sold a crap ton of consoles and are still winning every week WW so no issues from what I can see. Interesting thread though! Didn't vote in the poll because there was no option that fit my thoughts I guess....

Thank you for your fairness. Most appreciated.



They don't care.

Simple as that 



Being beat by 7-10k isn't ain't worth braging about. MS shouldn't want to brag.



If you can actually call it that...then you'd also call the previous 10 months of losses, Microsoft's arrogance.

Nothing would have really mattered. The Xbox One is destined to dominate in the US. So there is nothing Sony can do to stop that.

Go Green!



Everyone knows that the biggest battleground is the US. The ps4 has already won in every other major territory. Sony hasn't dropped the price yet because it hasn't lost momentum. That's the point of a price drop. Reinvigorate sales, and move on to the next group of people, who aren't willing to spend as much as the last group of buyers.



they don't need a price cut! they have almost 50% of market share over the rivals, one of than have a 1 year advantage, and when you compare X1 and Ps4, Ps4 lead is something like to 80%!

the gap is groing, Ps4 is winning, why sacrifice profit? Ps4 will seat in this 70-80% leading diference all the gen, perhaps even more, and will have something like 60% of marketshare easy on the long run.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

I think that has been debunked?

Isn't sales like 1.2m to 800k.

Yeah if it was only 7-10k I wouldn't be nearly as humbled.
