How Microsoft might lead in market share

1Up has put together an objective piece on how the Xbox 360 just might lead in market share this generation as compared to Sony. From the article: "Keep in mind, Microsoft has a 10 million unit lead before PS3 even gets out of the gate. And there are going to be a hell of a lot of gamers buying 360s this holiday season because they couldn't get their hands on a PS3 or Wii... And with the Live crossover between the PC and Xbox platforms (and mobile), Microsoft's 'platform' will extend much further than just the box."

All things considered, is this Sony's race to lose, or Microsoft's, Nintendo's to win?
