Competition can be a good thing in the industry. However, I'm starting to see a lot of people make it seem like both Sony and MS HAVE to be neck and neck for this gen to be good. 6th gen being better than 7th gen should tell you that's a load of crap. The PS2 dominated and is considered the best console ever.
Sony outsold everyone 4 to 1 with PS2 and never got lazy. 360 tied PS3 or lost and that was enough for them to get complacent. PS3 and 360 were close in sales all gen and it didn't make the generation better. If PS4 completely dominated X1, I'm sure we'll be in for a good generation regardless because Sony doesn't get complacent like MS does.
It is true that MS made Sony better and more focused to correct past mistakes. With Sony better, what role does MS play now that Sony learned they're not invincible? Time will tell.
Do you guys think this gen will be better if Sony dominates? or if they're neck and neck with xbox one?
