Suppose X1 starts to lag way behind PS4 in sales, what should Microsoft do?

If it begins to show obvious signs that the X1 really does lag behind the PS4 in sales month to month, what should Microsoft do at that point?

now i know people say Titanfall will be the big game changer but releasing it on the 360 and PC wasn't the best idea..the more platforms it's on, the more choice it gives gamers to get it for a system they already have. Especially if it gets just as high ratings on the 360 as it does the X1

I think it's pretty obvious the X1 will see less sales. Mainly because of the price difference and the ps4 being more popular worldwide.

Loosen up the amount of advertisements that are thrown in your face when you're a paying Gold member, release a Kinect-less XB1 for 100 dollars less, and bring more games.

Microsoft's efforts to break into the digital living room market are commendable, but the primary focus of the XBOX brand should've been game, and catering toward customers that play games; sales, exclusives, and performance should've been the draw-ins.

As-is, people are happy with their Hopper boxes and Direct TV satellite setups, the people who would've been into the XB1's "all-in-one" concept already have 7.1 sound setups, already have large TV's and are set. The XB1 should've been a complementary system, not one that strong-arms it's way to replace anything.

Microsoft will probably sell off the XBox brand like they've been discussing

The people on gamefaqs are gamers, our view of the issue is skewed. Look at how many Wiis sold to nongamers. The One will do just as well as the PS4.
