Microsoft could turn the Xbox One around by selling it all to Amazon.

lolwut?

No seriously, Xbone is doing pretty damn good for a new console with a direct competitor to detract from its sales. As has been stated, PS4 is currently outselling it, but that was mostly due to the original drm always online policy. At this point, I dont think it will outsell the PS4 unless Sony massively ****s up and I mean worse than the PSn outage. Xbone will still be a successful console in the long run however.

Current rates?

The only current rate we know is 3.9 million in 5 weeks, if that's a current rate Xbox One should hit 39 million by the end of the year.


No. We know January US numbers, their strongest territory with no stock issues. We will soon have February as well, which isn't looking better with retailers dropping prices.

Bury your head in the launch numbers all you want -- it'll get harder to be delusional each month.

How?

all they need to do is drop the Kinect 'spybox' and I'm sure a LOT of people will buy one, I personally know 8 people who've not bought one ONLY because of the Kinect.

..it can't be just us 8, I bet theres many many thousands!


no youre right... i would buy one if it was kinectless and am almost 100% id say like 99.9% positive i wont ever get one...i also know a handful of people who opted for a ps4 instead for the same reason

Give up.

They could make a video game system instead of a media box?

Also, stop forcing the kinect.

it doesn't ahve to turn around anything. the xbone is doing fine, BUT it won't be able to beat the ps4 in sales.

Get rid of Kinect, lower the price, throw in a game and apologize to their loyal fanbase for the E3 BS.

A simple we're sorry for trying to shove negative practices on the fans would have gone a long way.

...and come out and start saying the Bone is a gaming machine first foremost and a smart TV second would be nice as well. Not everyone wants that whole package and I'm sure it's a turn off to some.
