Will The PS4's Lead Over Xbox One Shrink Or Increase In 2015?
Many are saying the Xbox One continues to gain on the PlayStation 4.
We're preparing for a very interesting 2015: Will Xbox One catch up and surpass the PS4, or will Sony reclaim its earlier momentum?
It may come down to the exclusives and next year, the edge definitely appears to go to Sony's console, what with the likes of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, and whatever they decide to announce during the PlayStation Experience in December. Who knows, we could see new entries in both the Gran Turismo and God of War franchises in 2015, or Quantic Dream and Guerrilla could come forward with their mystery projects.
At the same time, we can't deny that Xbox is gaining a bigger and better foothold in North America, where the Xbox 360 dominated for eight years. That's a long run and consumers don't give up their loyalties that easily. On top of which, with the Xbox One being cheaper, it'll be immediately more attractive, especially during the holiday season. I seriously doubt Microsoft's machine will ever catch Sony's in other markets around the world but I've said from the beginning that the US will be difficult for PlayStation to reclaim and hold onto.
What do you think?
