I don't think Xbox is strong enough of a brand for the $500 Xbox One pricetag

There was a time where Xbox was almost the new PlayStation, but the PS3 had a turnaround and is even ahead of the 360 in worldwide sales. Xbox just isnt what it could have been, not with PlayStation getting so much popularity again and the hype the PS4 has.

I really think that a $500 pricetag is something the Xbox One MIGHT have gotten away with if there was no PS4, but with the PS4 around and only $400..... people will not bite. Xbox just doesnt have the brand power and the competition is too steep

The wii u sold for 350 and sold 5million worldwide

I dont' see your point. But yeah, waiting for the price of everything to go down and a viable reason to use the kinect would make sense.

so the company that sold twice as many 360's as Sony sold PS3's in America.....isn't a strong enough brand?

it does matter when the US has substantially higher software attach rates than any other market.

PS3 is the biggest failure in history of home console, it's not turning around anything at all. What's Sony is hoping right now is to empty all of their stockpile of PS3 to recoup some of the losses. XBox brand is not successful either but it's still in a better situation than the Play Station brand at the moment. And the extra $100 in price added a lot of features into XBone that PS4 gamers can't even get in their dreams (superior cloud services, much much better natural interface controller in Kinnect and a truly home entertainment system rather just a plain video games player).

with RROD replacement sales the 360 sold around 77 million, according to most sites. the same places say the PS3 has sold over 80 million units. Last time I checked, 80 million was more than 77 million. Sony lost what, now?

You can find this information yourself, if you want.
