Next year will be very interesting for sure. The first half I expect Playstation to be very dominate with a much larger library of both first and 3rd party exclusives expected in the first 6 months of the year. The back half will be were things could go either way.
If Microsoft delivers with the Windows 10 unification of their devices, then XBO will have a massive advantage over PS4 with the ability to run some of the best productivity software on the market. I also expect Microsoft to partener with either Direct TV or Verizon for OTT television to counter Sony's Playstation Vue. That along with big exclusives like Quantum Break, Halo 5, and More than likly a Marcus Fenix collection will give XBO a well rounded library of content that will be hard to beat in holiday 2015 and beyond.
On the Sony side of things, they have to be prepared to counter Microsofts very real threat of bringing productivity apps to XBO. They need to work with some of the free software makers that have been on X86 for years. I don't do a lot of productivity, but GIMP, and ABIword have always been good to me on both linux and windows. Obviously they are going to need a lot more than that to compete with Microsofts industry lesading productivity software. Beyond that, they have to iron out the PSN issues, and get both PS Now and PS Vue working flawless by the second half of next year. If they can have Sony Network Entertainment running smooth, and push Mucis Unlimited, Video Unlimited, PlayStation Now, and PlayStation Vue with huge marketing next holiday, then PS4 may be able to maintain its dominate position. Put all of the above together, with big hitters like Uncharted 4 USA, Gran Turismo 7 in EU, and Final Fantasy 15 in Japan, and PS4 may just be able to maintain or grow the gap year over year.
I cant seriously tell if a joke or serious post.
None of that will matter, they are gaming devices first and foremost. Its why PS4 hammered x1 and its grand entertaiment plans.
None of that will help either one. Its about the games and the value, not much else.
