The difference in technical specs between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One won't play any significant role in the forthcoming console war, according to Alan Bowman, Microsoft’s Australasian vice president of retail sales and marketing.
Speaking to Gameplanet in a recent interview, Bowman explained:
We’ve got a unique value proposition, and from just a pure specs perspective it’s always gonna be a fairly marginal difference. The purists are gonna argue the toss, but I think it comes down to the games.Regarding the Japanese market, Bowman acknowledged Sony's clear advantage, saying, “Being a local brand makes such a huge difference in Japan. Sony are so strong in Japan as its their home base, and they certainly get a lot of support from the customer as well as the ecosystem – the local third-party developers, who primarily publish for Sony."
Do you think the difference in power between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will prove to make a significant role the future success of each console? Does Xbox One stand a chance in Japan? Let us know in the comments below.
