The fact that people still care about sales numbers astounds me.
Anyone with half a brain knew that both the PS4 and Xbox One would sell millions of consoles relatively quick. "But people were trash talking---" So what? People trash talk every single thing that exists.. good or bad. "I own a diamond hat" "it looks gaudy and hurts my eyes, take that ugly crap off".
It's nearly Christmas, a lot of parents are looking to buy their kids the 'hot new console'.. so I don't see why everyone is surprised about high sales numbers.
Now if you told me that either console actually had games that were worth playing before the end of 2013 and quarter 2 of 2014 then maybe i'd listen but since they don't, in my opinion anyway, and won't then they could sell 50 million consoles and I still wouldn't care.
So MS sold more in 30 less countries at 25% more expensive. *bow*
Coo. Forget to mentio 6 months of negative press. Congratz on the gold MS. After 2 silvers, the golllld. Theee goooooooolld! It tastes so sweet.
I think it's because the educated consumer pays no attention to negative press.
Same with the mainstream media and politics. Can't trust anything they say.
I think that's one of the silliest thing I've read on this board for quite some time.
"Educated consumers" pay no attention to negative press?? I'm not saying that "educated consumers" should believe all the negativity or hype behind any product, but an actual educated consumer would take all information into account before making a purchase.
(note: this is not a bash to anyone who decided to buy any of the consoles) (note #2: I think it's sad I have to write these notes just so I don't get flamed)
Negative topic regarding sales: "Sales don't matter! Shut up ponies!!" Positive topic regarding sales: "Sales do matter! Eat it PS4!!"
Sometimes I just hate this board for its hypocrisy...
How can you possibly say that!? This IS the Xbox One forums! If you don't want to hear good news about the Xbox One, then leave! Its hypocrisy to come over from another board and sling PS4 BS over and over again. How are people SERIOUSLY failing to grasp this simple concept? @cheezedadada
That's not hypocrisy. Annoying maybe, but not hypocrisy. Grab a dictionary.
Holy *****! How did this happen guys? what happened to our 7:1 preorders!! We had 7 to 1 preorders!! We were supposed to BURY MS! How did this happen? I demand to know who didn't pull their weight trolling the boards. HEADS WILL ROLL! We put far too much time and effort these past 6 months desperately trying to turn the tides of the console war and for what? FOR WHAT?! To get beaten like this? I'm done with this.
