Notice how MS is listed first. They're both new consoles, why does one have to take a backseat to the other. Also notice how Xbox One has a description full of favorable, biased, and subjective information and for PS4 they mearely list the contents, nothing more. Anyone else sick of MS business tactics and political hold on gaming. Either MS has a lot of fanboys in power or they're moneyhatting hard. If they want to be the best, they should just try their best instead of making shills to cripple the competition. Don't see how anyone could support such a dirty company.

Okay, if your theory were true wouldn't the 360 and X1 have the first page all to themselves

MS new agena is next generation, but anyway, MS at least makes sure X1>PS4 and 360>PS3. To put 360 over PS4 is too obvious.

I don't know, sometimes especially with magazines and ads, I know I'm not the only one, I start looking at the pages starting from the last page towards the front page. But thanks for the heads up on this leak. The sale prices are kinda meh.

Its not necesarrily just better advertising. Look at the descriptions of the consoles in the papar. One gets a paragraph of favorable and completely subjective information while PS4 just gets a list of contents. Not whining or crying here, just making a statement of MS political bull and seeing if others noticed. Is there something wrong with me doing that?

Political? what is political in there?

Perhaps Sony should have paid more. Not sure why you're complaining that MS has better advertising

They gotta generate interest somehow since hardly anyone wants an X1 nowadays, it's all about PS4 everywhere I go.

Like if people care when people are fix on a product and put an X on another that most likely with stick.

Considering that pre-orders put the PS4 ahead even on US is better to channel that money into games,sony announce more than 1 million preorders like a month ago,still waiting for a number from MS.

Don't be surprise to see MS try to use dollars make on launch to actually claim victory,the PS4 is $100 less so if MS make more money on close they will try to claim victory or claim that the launches of both units were close base on dollars make on the first days.

so because they list the Xbox 1 first they are somehow in MS pockets? Excuse me while i roll around on the floor laughing dude, worst conspiracy theory ever dude.

Oh, and the 'Best' company, in business terms, is the one that makes the most Bank, regardless of how they do it

@lundy86_4: You make it sound like PlayStation is now a cookie cutter brand in the States now. It's a household name lol. PS3 wasn't Sony's first console, doubt retailers are doing this on their own. They're getting paid off. One generation of MS taking advantage does not negate PS2 and 1 outselling the competition 4 to 1. That was true domination, not a measly 15-20 million unit lead.

Oh by the way NTG, if you get banned again and once again feel the need to cry for help on the PUSH offsite, they've moved to a different forum so just PM someone from PUSH and they'll give you the info. Even if everyone just laughed at your pleas the last time, I'm sure they'll be more helpful this time.

360 dominated in the States. Not sure why you feel the need to explain that away. Black Friday is a US thing.
