He doesn't think XBO will make any type of comeback. He just says that being in second place makes them more willing to try different things. Whether or not being in second place was the reason for Sony's creativity last gen is something that can't be proven, though. They did make a lot of  changes, mostly for the better, though.

I think it's like Nintendo having to rethink their strategy after the GameCube and WiiU to win back fans. Then again, who knows how many years in advance companies have to work to put out a project? Anything M$, Sony, or Nintendo do to " make a comeback" could possibly be something they were planning to do anyway.


My point is, what creativity from Sony?


They had to do a cheaper SKU because they failed on the price. They did the Move (which kinda failed), because it was the motion control moment. That's it!

How were they especially innovative? Because they made first party games? But they did first party games on PSOne and PS2, it didn't change. Because they had a variety of different games? Well, the PS2 was the console with the most various games ever, so nothing new.


Sony didn't have to be "creative" to comeback. They just fixed their price mistake and rested on their usual strengths : variety of games, quality of exclusives,  lifetime support, and brand recognition. 


That's why I talked about "natural". PlayStation beating Xbox is natural, even if they had the exact same console. Because everybody knows Playstation has strengths Xbox doesn't have. And they're not building it now.'

Last gen when Sony was  behind, they:

Createdd PlayStation Home 

Added rumble back to their controller

Started giving away "free"games with PS+

Created the Move

Cross Buy on certain games

Added Trophies

Probably more but I'm forgetting. They also cut some features, to make the price more appealing.


Something iswell wrongwit h quoting. It's adding in all kinds of extra words and letters and when I try to edit things just get worse.


Anyway, there's no way to tell what. Was a responss to being in secondtthird  and what was something they already had planned so don't take this as fact. Just guesses. e
