Sony successful sales with the PS4 can be attributed to terrible decision by Microsoft before both consoles were released. Microsoft intended the Xbox One to an online console only, forcing users to sign in online every 24 hours if they want to keep playing their games. The console also became hated when Microsoft announced that it will have a ton of DRM check like being region-locked. In order to win many unhappy potential buyers back, Microsoft decided to remove those DRM check and restrictions. Unfortunately for Microsoft, those people had already decided to buy a PS4 instead.
