I don't care about sales but I want to point out what one of the comments said.

The xbox one has only been launched in 13 countries while the ps4 has launched in 72 countries.

The xbox one is doing great for how little market it is available in.

my first thought: forbes has a lot of "articles" about the video game industry

my second thought: it's from a "contributor"

Lol

This argument always cracks me up. How little most gamers know of geography.

Not just geography but economics, some of these kids just don't get it.

Stop complaining about your massive backlog and just administer an enema already.

XBone is only launched in the countries where sales might actually matter

some of the tier 1 countries have not even broken 100k sales yet. Tier 2 and below countries won't do anything to help it.

the XBone is also readily available in retailers of countries it hasn't launched in, by having major retailers import the consoles from tier 1 countries

Even then, only comparing the countries the XBone did launch in, it is still getting massacred in terms of sales

Take out the kinect

Take out the "need gold " for apps

Give free games away like crazy

Buy up japanese support

and actually support the damn system until it's death and dont drop it off like the 360 or xboxs , never played the last of us or that other game they released, but man was i jelous ps3 got brand new ip's and games at the end of it's lifespan. its stil getting support from japanese games right now. like tales of symphonia.

yeah where is that on my xbox 360 ,oh titanfall? another shooter? There's nothing on it, this is why i am not going to buy another xbox console until they are at the end of their lifespans. because i cant handle waiting for games.

( you forgot and drop the price )

Anyway, true that.

So, basically, make a PS4.
