It was a very slick move by Sony to have Microsoft go first at last years E3 console reveal. They seriously exploited all of Microsoft's missteps and used it to their advantage while appearing to come off as the gamers best friend. However I know that business is cut throat and it's all about getting one up on the other guy, and I don't hate Sony as I do plan to get a Playstation 4 one day, but I feel like the current lead they have on the Xbox One is partly because of their tactic rather their product. Microsoft however could have done a better job of presenting the Xbox One minus all of the demands and limitations they first tried to impose upon the gaming world. I feel they probably thought most of those changes would be for the good of the gaming industry, but doing a few focus group sessions and getting opinions from gamers of all ages would have shown them the best way to go without having to do all of those reversals in the end. It all really put a bad mark on an outstanding console right out of the gate. I do believe they have learned from that experience and hope they have done their homework to "bring it" this year. In my opinion Playstation has less stellar games than Xbox right now, the Xbox can accomplish more innovative things than the Playstation and only real difference between the two is price. It really comes down to who feels the kinect is worth the extra $100 and who doesn't. I feel it adds a distinct uniqueness to the system and though it may not be perfect, it does feel next gen by offering something new and different to the gaming experience.
