Well, wasn't this so ****ing brave of Pachter? A console with well over 1 million preorders alone selling more than one million by the end of the year? INSANITY!

Pachter is an idiot. He's not predicting anything, he's just stating what the numbers already tell us. Can't believe that people still listen to him.

The moron doesnt know the Dec.31st date on Amazon is a placeholder for the standard editions.

That was the worst analysis I've ever seen. His predictions are based solely off two things. Jack Tretton told him that they have over a million preorders with more units beyond that, and Xbox One is sold out on Amazon when he checked but still showing delivery by Dec 31. That's it?!? The only accurate thing stated is that both consoles will sell everything they produce, so the only thing that matters when it comes to sales predictions is the supply chain of either company and which console production has the highest yield.

It was recently reported that Xbox One worldwide shipment numbers for fourth quarter (ending March 2014) dropped from 7 million to 6.2 million so Xbox will have produced that much worldwide at least by then. If you extrapolate Tretton's statement to assume that with 1 million preorders and a large support beyond that, 3 million by the end of the calendar year and another 3-4 million by the end of the March 2014 is feasible and puts both the consoles within a couple hundred thousand units of one another. You won't see any real separation between the two until Christmas 2014.
