Sony's PS4 is currently losing to the XBOne not because of an inferior product, but because of supply problems. Stores are filled to the brim with XBOne's and get new shipments every day (I wonder if they learned that from the Wii launch), while stores are barely sent enough PS4's to actually put one on a shelf.

This is a digression from the main discussion but Sony isn't losing anything, they've sold 4.1 million PS4s to the Xbox Ones 3 million. Judging by those numbers their supply chain is fine, the problem is that demand was so insanely high that they couldn't realistically hope to meet it. That's a good problem to have

How did Sony get access to utilize DirectX on a closed, directly competing platform? Valve will need to take a similar step to make their machines truly viable and reduce fragmentation among developers.

They licensed it from Microsoft. Valve won't do the same thing because they want to get away from Microsoft dependency, not increase it. The Windows 8 store really pissed Gabe off.
