We can't say that MS isn't trying as hard as they can to keep the Xbox One selling with all the ads and promotions for it, but they have slowed down quite a lot.

Some weeks ago MS reported Xbox One sales hit 3 million worldwide and at the same time Sony reported PS4 sales being at 4.2 million.

Now new data is in and Sony has confirmed PS4 sales are at 5.3 million (they had projected PS4 sales would hit 5 million at the end of March originally) smashing through their sales projection.

Xbox One is at 3.6 million, but MS will not say the numbers they had projected to hit by the end of the fiscal year but clearly it's not selling as well as MS hoped.

The PS4 is also just days away from launching in Japan, while MS will not say when exactly they will launch the Xbox One in that region.

I hope the Xbox One picks up in sales eventually, the PS4 is really making MS look bad

It's still 13 countries for Xbox One and 40+ something for PS4, right?

Oh, okay. Thanks.

Reminding me of the Wii U, really strong sales to begin with and then slows down pretty quickly in the new year after the holidays are over and what not.

It'll be interesting to see how much of a boost in sales the console gets when Titanfall is released.

3.6 Million is very impressive, regardless of what the competition has done.

I'm pretty sure Microsoft is dead. The entire company will go under for sure now.

Last I checked the Xbone still had more regions where it was released in so how's that work?

This. Considering xbone is way weaker than PS4(by 50%) and its also $100 more expensive than PS4.

But I understand its already started slowing down though.
