I don't see the logic behind that.
Sony is waiting for MS because they are announcing it this week? MS just announced it as well, and because of data steal, otherwise they would also announce it this week.
So why is Sony price based on MS and not the other way around? What is the difference to point it as Sony is the one worried about MS price? Shouldn't it be the opposite?
Sony is the one that can get better with higher prices because of Playstation's higher brand power, why would they be more worried than MS as they are the ones to win over them every single time?
If people want to suspect anything it should be the other way around... but that would also be unfair.
Both Sony and MS are aware of its competitor and wanting to make the best move, that's just business, but if anything Sony is the one that needs to worry the least.
I didn't say MS wasn't also waiting for Sony. They were both clearly playing a game of chicken but MS prices got leaked and then they had the official reveal. MS got a ton of news coverage, especially on the S. If Sony had a pricepoint that was better than that they would have revealed the price sooner, as there would be no good reason to wait and let MS get the good news coverage for a week.
Instead, I think it only solidified that the digital version would be $399 instead of $449
