apples and oranges really. Sony was dominant with the PSX and the PS2 because of almost a complete lack of competition. This generation was the first one where someone actually had a viable alternative to Sony.


I wouldnt say they "stole" a huge % of market share as much as they filled the void in the market. Sony only had that market share because there was pretty much no one else to give it too.
