I was listening to the bombcast today and they said there was no way new console would be released on the same day, I agree. However, I think they should, lets start a console war. Why work together with your enemy? Think of what it would be like if both were released mid-September. Personally, I will probably wait till sometime next year to get one, but I would be more interested in getting one sooner to help out in the fight vs the other. Every week you could look at the numbers and know what system was winning.
You could make a one day like no other release in history. 2 lines waiting outside stores Sony or MS? 4 v 1 It would turn into a holiday for anyone who could get out of work/school. Pick a side and lets go to battle.
I know there are tons of forums and other places where fanboys from both side slamming the other. I don't normally join into those topics, but something hit me and the thought of MS and Sony going at each other in public seems fun. SO lets go to WAR
