It's encouraging but we've still got a ways to go.
That seems to be the general consensus generated by our latest poll. We asked our readers if Sony's early lead in the new generation was an especially big deal.
Well, the majority agreed that it was significant, but slightly more participants were a bit more reserved, saying it's only the start of the marathon. However, a great many said this explosion out of the gate is "critical." Remember, the PlayStation 4 has sold 4.2 million consoles worldwide while the Xbox One sits at 3 million. It's also important to note that Sony's system hasn't yet launched in Japan; after it does, Sony will almost certainly increase their global lead. As for the US, that could be a neck-and-neck race for a while .
This week, if you don't own an Xbox One, why? Too much money? Good with the PS4? Doesn't have the games you want? Just don't like Microsoft? Or are you merely waiting until the right moment, perhaps when it does have games you really want to play?
