Yep, you guessed right, or wrong, doesn't really matter, what matters is, the X1 is dangerously close to the PS4 in US which is the major market both companies are targeting primarily.

In Jan, the PS4 almost doubled the X1 sales with almost 140k lead to the PS4. In Feb, that difference shrinked to 30k and the overall difference is 300k which isn't much.

TitanFall is the next big X1 release, while Infamous is the next big PS4 release. And let's not fool ourselves, Infamous looks much more fun and next gen than TF, but TF will sell much more and this is probably why the X1 pretty much closed the gap in Feb.

I am not alienating JPN and Europe, but if Sony was to choose between which market to dominate, it would have chosen NA, So it really needs to hit harder than that, because if can't live on an initial lead that's fading away.

Has nothing to do with supply shortage and everything to do with the fact that the hype is dying down and that there aren't really any compelling reasons to give up your ps3 for a ps4 at the moment. The people who have bought the console up until now are the die hards. Expect sales to slow for the next few months. They'll pick up again toward the fall, in the u.s.

It's been months, I work retail and we get like 12 PS4s once a month, Sony is slacking hard.

PS4 supply has been really bad in the US. Everywhere I go on around me there's nowhere to be found any PS4's. Gamestop, Bestbuy, Walmart, Target, etc. Nowhere.

That's the price for releasing in so many countries. I expect now that Japan's launch is over, Sony will probably focus on US and UK again primarily so PS4 sales will increase.

However, I won't deny that Titanfall will be a big seller for Xbone but people can't deny that PS4 is just a beast.
