Yes. No matter how good the E3 conference is for ms or how many multiplatform games are, it won't push sales in a significant way ww for them.
Your actually thinking that Microsoft is trying to take over PS4 sales in Japan where it's being outsold 67 to 1 and haven't reach the 100k mark.
There market where Microsoft Xbox will simply never be able to penetrate or have a major presence.
Global - PS4 - 79.5 Xbox - 37.59 - 2.11 to 1 ratio
North America (42.81% market) - PS4 - 26.81 XBox - 23.32 - 1.15 to 1 ratio
Europe (35.73% market) - PS4 - 31.84 Xbox - 10 - 3.18 to 1 ratio
Japan (5.82% market) - PS4 - 6.72 Xbox 0.10 - 67.20 to 1 ratio
Rest of the world (15.63%) - PS4 - 14.13 Xbox 4.17 - 3.39 to 1 ratio
The Xbox 360 out sold PS3 most of last generation but they did so only by outselling PS3 in North America. PlayStation brand is much more establish world wide and Microsoft have a long way to go.
But every time you keep making statement that include Japan a market that Microsoft has clearly abandon it's hard to take you seriously. Beside every future sales is good for Microsoft regardless of how they do against PS4.
Microsoft is sitting at 37.59 worldwide you think that them getting to 50 won't matter? Sure they won't catch up to Sony but they are constantly growing their brand and presence.
