Your move, Sony.
Will this be enough, though? Without it's only inherent hardware advantage and distinction (aside from that SRAM wackiness), MS is banking on brand loyalty in order to ensure its competitive position. But if gaming consumers were truly such a loyal bunch, then the 150 million+ PS2 owners wouldn't have so eagerly jumped ship to the Wii and 360 last gen.
Overall it doesn't matter; MS doesn't need to overtake the PS4, as long as it stays competitive. But if it DOES, then man... you could not have a bigger slap in the face, Sony.
