No its not. Thats like saying that $50 is the same as $100. Not true. Microsoft would have less sales if they put 720p on their game cases. People know now though. Ps4 outselling globally and their other major fan base in Japan hasn't started selling there so ps4 sales will increase even more.
You make me feel ashamed to call myself a fanboy.
They would only sell less if people had both consoles. How many people are that? And even then Microsoft won because they already bought their console.
It's not like people who only own an X1 have a choice in the games so why wouldn't they buy it? Because it's better to have no games than slightly worse looking games than the competitor whose games they will never see because they haven't got their console?
Or are you implying that people look first on the backs of all console games before they decide which system to buy?
