Depends on what gap we’re talking about. I would be shocked if Sony doesn’t outsell Xbox in consoles by a big margin. Maybe it will be closer if they handle pricing really aggressively, but I don’t see it being substantially closer.
With their PC multiplat strategy, xcloud, and this more gradual cross generation approach to next gen, MS obviously knows that they’ve significantly reduced to their ability to move consoles. With that in mind, it doesn’t preclude them from “closing the gap” in other ways.
Close the gap in the quality and quantity of titles. Keep expanding the market to close the gap in revenue. Those are achievable goals for them.
