In a recent interview with Gamesbeat, ex Sony and Microsoft executive Phil Harrison said that Microsoft have made a “fantastic recovery” in regards to the overall sales worldwide units sold compared to Sony and their Playstation 4. Stating..
“The thing Sony has done incredibly well over many years is build up a very powerful distribution network outside of the U.S. and the U.K. I don’t think people truly understand how powerful that is and how much effort it’s taken. That’s part of it. But I also think Sony was just very clear about their proposition. It’s a powerful game console, no ambiguity. That’s what they tried to sell. Microsoft had a more challenged message at the beginning. They’ve acknowledged that themselves. But I think Microsoft has made a fantastic recovery. It’s still to play for.”
