Analyst: PS4 Has A "Slight Momentum Edge” Over Xbox One In U.S.

PlayStation 4 is the console of choice among gamers in the United States, according to Baird and Co. analysts.
The firm references GameStop numbers, where Sony's gaming box has the edge over Xbox One. "Sony’s PS4 clearly bounced back from our mixed early-2013 supply chain checks, and appears to have a slight momentum edge among core gamers, as demonstrated by premium prices on eBay and persistent out-of-stock reports at retail," analyst Colin Sebastian said.
"A competitive ‘two horse’ console race would be positive for software publishers and retailers if Microsoft and Sony are forced to compete aggressively for market share."
That said, it isn't a monumental lead, so it's far too early to crown a victor. If the past generation has shown us anything, in a couple of years' time, the console landscape could look very different.
Interestingly enough, Wii U wasn't a major topic of conversation. Hmm... I wonder why?
