Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Their vision at launch. They were so focused on TV that they forgot it was a games console first. The lack of power, Kinect costing the launch console to cost $100 more than ps4, always online nonsense and Don Mattrick in general.

The PS4 was the console of choice for multiplatform games: Better performance for a lower price. And if that wasn't already enough to make it clear what the better console was, Microsoft added insult to injury with their awful policies.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Poorer first party output across the board compared to the 360 era, a lack of major exclusives, and an inability to foster any new blockbuster IPs.

The main one is not being a playstation, this basically resumes the other reasons.

Mr Puggsly: "Hehe, I said good profit. You said big profit. Frankly, not losing money is what I meant by good. Don't get hung up on semantics"

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

It's called an Xbox and not a Playstation.

Plus awful first party game output, and bad marketing and awful first party game output.

But with everything being equal PS still sells more because of it's brand.

The fact that it failed to connect with the Japanese market has to be a reason, right? I've heard that Microsoft has always kind of struggled with selling its hardware in Japan but like, Nintendo and Sony consistently do well in that market (how shocking that a Japanese company would do well in Japan of all countries) and for some reason Microsoft just cannot do well there. Also the 3rd party support is kind of lackluster and I feel bad for saying it but at least with the 3rd party companies I follow they seem to favor the PS4 and Switch when it comes to actively supporting those systems
