Microsoft's first mistake this gen - Slowing down Xbox One production

#1ChevelIePosted 4/25/2014 8:54:58 AM
Microsoft have made amazing moves this gen, but this is the first mistake I sadly have to admit that they have made. Why would they want to slow down production? When the next PS4 sales report is in it will look BAD if they don't have millions of shipped sales.

Imagine when the PS4 hits 10 million in a few months and MS says "Well we are 6 million shipped now, yeah we slowed down production and are still clearing the Day One Editions off the shelves"


HOW DO YOU THINK INVESTORS WILL REACT?

If anything they should RAISE production, f***ing flood even convenience stores with Xbox Ones whether they sell or not. That way when Sony says "We have sold 10 million PS4s to consumers", MS will say "Well we have the money to ship 14 million Xbox Ones this year, and we did!"

Well out of the 5 million units shipped Xbox One has sold 4.2 million. 200,000 Units since they started the sales and bundles for titanfall and forza. I'm sure 800,000 units will last plenty on shelves. Just a big mess. They need better PR. Every other thing they come out saying digs them a deeper hole. Just announce a $100 price drop sell remaining units and work on a slim model that at least matches the ps4s power and capabilities. Id be more worried at this point about the consumers jumping ship. About 30 of my friends on ps4 now were on the 360 last gen. Microsoft done goofed.

Well I guess it's good that he entertained at least one single person here. I look at the whole joke about playing the same character every single week as being lazy. The jokes are low hanging fruit and are about as amusing as Carrot Top or having Gallagher smash a watermelon in your face.
