Point was they only outsold MS in the US by 200k units with an entire extra week of sales, WHILE dealing with low supply issues.
They should be vastly outselling MS at this point, but their wider launch has not actually allowed that to happen. They had a chance to stand on MS's head and bury them and they didn't capitalize on that. Outselling MS in uncontested markets is not impressive to me.
I don't really think software exclusivity is a reason that people buy consoles, but a result of the lack of choice they are given.
I am still on the fence about the controller reception, every review I've read so far about someone holding or using the thing was written by some mope that obviously doesn't spend much time gaming in a serious fashion.
