PS4 Unveiling: What Would Sony Gain By Being the First to Show Off Next-Gen Consoles?

Leviathyn.com | Sony is expected to roll out their next generation console in a matter of weeks. What exactly do they gain from making their announcement before Microsoft? (PS4, Sony)

They'll set the stage of course. It's always better to act rather than react. If you make the first move then you decide the flow of combat..... says Batman anyway.

I just want it to release. They've earned my money with what the PS3 has been doing and I can only expect better things with the PS4.

Sony themselves has lots of manufacture resources that Microsoft don't have under their belt.

With Sony's manufacture resources at hand , they can make any changes on the Fly while Microsoft would have to consult with their manufacture partners if any changes to the 720's hardware is needed resulting to more delays.

So, I think it would be smarter for Sony to go first. And if I were Sony I would brag to all of the investors about how I can use my manufactures resource to manipulate Microsoft.

Only media hype. At least they learned a lesson this time. Xbox won't be far behind and you know MS has a spectacular showing and they will surely brag about xbox360 numbers.
