Why Hasn't Microsoft Publicly Announced They've already Sold 4 million XB1s?

That 725 so call legend guy is going nutz all over this topic good to see his rear end still explode from a simple post about M$ officially not reaching 4 million unit. You seem more concern than most investors that might lost money on this.

There's a decent chance they haven't actually sold 4 million yet. Regardless, I think MS is going to be keep sales numbers to themselves from now on as to not embarrass themselves further when compared to Sony's runaway success with the PS4.

Because the PS4 sold 7million, and it wouldn't make sense for Microsoft to advertise that they sold 3 million less.

In January and February they sold 400k in the US. In March they seemingly did better in the US than they did in February. I'll just put it at 300k which would add to 700k in the US. So they are at 4 million at least but most companies don't tend to announce it every single time they hit a new million.

they're behind in the race, it'd be pointless to announce it. I'm an xbox guy so I'm not trying to hate on it, but why would they announce 4 million when sonys hit 7 million a week ago or w/e. it'd look kind of dumb if you ask me. I'm sure they're well over 4 million by now though since they were at 3 million before 2013 ended

So from reading the post Microsoft don't release sales numbers cause of fanboys? That could be true. But we don't know we are just speculateing only microsofts what Microsoft will do

Yeah Xbox sold 4 million and is crushing 360 pace but because they are behind a console running at 50-100 cheaper and with a strong propaganda campaign they should feel bad!!

^pony logic


This isn't just pony logic I can guarantee you that MS themselves doesn't want to be behind Sonys console they don't care about the price difference. You think during the board meetings they're saying "Hey guys it's ok that Sony has taken over the UK and we are neck and neck in the US they're $100 cheaper we're doing great considering the circumstances".

No that's not how talks are going behind the scenes MS wants to win they want to be the dominant console. It helps them get exclusives for cheaper and helps them dictate the game industry. I've seen your post so I know none of this will matter to you but I'm at work and I'm bored so I figured why not.

I hope PS4 gets sliver dollar games. Really a good indie is a needle in a damn haystack and while taking good games off steam is a good idea, how many people are actually spending 15/20 bucks on these indies that are an year or so old and has been on steam for a fraction of the price.
