I felt like they had to mitigate the difference in flops by emphasizing other features. Like the whole audio thing, I wasn't too excited about that, but who knows once I put headphones on, maybe I'll be impressed. I know that flops aren't everything and that the hard drive issues might have been the bigger bottleneck to solve.
On the whole, I'm not worried for Sony. Many, many people seem to have the PS5 on lockdown and are eagerly waiting for the exclusive sequels coming up and whatnot. It's kind of become a thing where Microsoft has the most powerful console(at least for a time), but it doesn't really have an effect on what Sony is doing.
