Who gives a crap if they end of up selling a total 2 consoles for this month. This does not affect your life at all. Why do gamers want to care about the business side of gaming? Why don't you put the same passion in vacuum cleaner companies and toothbrush companies too while your at it.

Because it does matter; no sales means no games.

Just look at the WiiU; is that what you want for the Xbone?

Use some common sense bro.

Probably the biggest mistake Microsoft made with Bone was the price.

Price speaks to the mainstream (not hardcore) buyer. If one console is $100 less than the other (and more capable to boot), guess which one they will buy.

Leakers have suggested they'll probably do this as soon as E3, which means you early adopters are getting hosed.

Because those are totally the same as a game console.

This is so concerning. The Xbox brand struggling in its own territory?

*sigh* You again. This is whats happening.

Retailers have XB1 in stock, but not PS4.
Retailers are in business to make money from sales. They don't care which console sells the most, they just want to generate a sale, which can happen by cutting into their own revenue by either slashing the price or bundling a free game.
This is business 101.

Meanwhile MS is happy to announce 3 million sold XB1 units around new year, and a further 900k a month later, and even though it's not as much as PS4, it's still very good for business, and a far cry from struggling (sorry to disappoint you).
