PSXE Poll Update: The PlayStation 4 Puts Pressure On Microsoft
Sony's PlayStation 4 is now out in the open and according to our latest poll, Microsoft ought to be a little concerned.
We asked gamers if the Xbox manufacturer should be worried about Sony's new console, and the results are obvious: The vast majority say that the PS4 is indeed a beast, which means - as one analyst said last week - that Microsoft needs to step up big time.
While there is some argument over whether or not the architecture of the new PlayStation lets the machine qualify as a "beast," there's no doubt that the presentation went over relatively well. With an obvious focus on targeting the largest audience possible, plenty of games on display, and some surprises (Diablo III on PS4, for instance), the PS4 is shaping up well early on. We still need a release date and price for the console, although the launch estimate is "Holiday 2013." In the meantime, we'll have to see what Microsoft announces; according to various sources, the Xbox 720 could be revealed in April.
So how do you think Sony did unveiling the PS4? Is it everything you expected it to be? Or are you somewhat disappointed? Let us know.
