It's a good thing, Microsoft kept the supply up nice and high. People who want the preorder bonuses can still get them.

It's horrible, it's completely killed any value my Day One edition had.

You're just jealous because Sony didn't have a exclusive preorder console deal.

I find this quite interesting, I knew the XB1 sales were bad, but not this bad. What side of fence are you all on?

Considering they did a drawdown, I'm not sure it's not doing worse then the Wii U.

If you think about it there's a very high likelihood that people bought large quantities of the Bone thinking they could make a profit off its scarcity. It likely didn't even sell as well as the official sold numbers would make it seem. LOL that failboat is sinking.

Can someone explain how millions of units sold within a few months is bad now? Or is it just the idiot fanboys who prefer a specific console and will attack others on behalf of their beloved plastic box that consider it bad?

Selling millions of units in a few months like PS4 did (3 million of them) is good.

Not selling millions and instead shipping 1.2 million and then having to issue a drawdown to stop production because of excess stock in retail outlets, is not good.

Do you see the difference?
