The problems that occurred during the launch of play station 3 helped the Xbox 360 have a better launch. (Recap: PS3 was in limited supply; price was too high.)
Well, PlayStation 3 launch wasn’t as smooth as what most people would have expected it to be, and many Xbox people believe the rise in Xbox users was due to those issues. Initially PlayStation struggled to get off to a decent start with the huge hype and over the top price tag that pulled it down. Until that particular incident, PlayStation was the market leader in the area of console gaming.
But the issue surrounding PS3 and the over prize made it easy for the Xbox people to learn a lesson and to come up with a better product overall. On top of that, the below par online component paved the way for more damage to PlayStation’s reputation. This eventually gave way for its rivals to wake up and capitalize. This helped Microsoft to come up with a better gaming console, which we know as the Xbox 360.
But now the battle is once again brewing, where both the gaming giants are set to come out with a better console in the name of PS4 and Xbox 720. Though it could take some time before either of the two to hit the stores, some great minds from both sides are leaving no stones unturned, searching for the newest innovations, so that they come out with the best possible gaming device ever.
While Sony is looking to get back to the top of the charts, Microsoft is looking forward to creating something super special. At the end of the day, it is great time for gamers in general.
Doesn’t matter if you are loyal to PlayStation or Xbox: your wait for the next big thing could be worth the wait.
