OK first of I loved my 360 way above the PS3...until the last 2 years. Sony starting getting better exclusives and PSN+ was totally a better bargain.
Now the PS4 has upfront better hardware, will most likely get more eastern dev support from Japan, and seems the PS4 features/apps are equivalent if not better than XB1, its smaller and cheaper than XB1; how will MS keep up against Sony?
While i am hoping for strong tie in with apps and the Win8 ecosystem, i dont think that will be enough for it to stand out. Will cloud processing actually be used by developers? and will it be exclusive to XB1? Couldnt the majority of apps be used on PS4 as well?
While gameplay and quality games matter way more than specs. I dont see why Sony couldnt do the same thing with their PS4.
What do you think MS has up their sleeve to stay in this race?
