Microsoft planning on a drawdown for Xbox One and not Xbox 360, gives us clues

http://www.vg247.com/2014/04/25/microsoft-to-channel-inventory-drawdown-for-xbox-consoles-during-q4-fy14-says-cfo/

Drawdown is when a company stops producing a product to allow the product in retail outlets to sell first.
Very rare circumstances they just "slow" down production, but it's rarely done with products such as electronics as the cost would still remain similar (because of paying employees, electricity cost, transportation etc).

The reason this is interesting is because they shipped 1.2 million XB1 consoles, and shipped 800,000 360 consoles.

This means that selling 800,000 "360"s is enough to warrant continued production.

This means the XB1 has NOT sold 800,000 units. Or they would continue production of them as well.

Nothing gets me hard like knowing exactly how many units a console has sold.

It does suck on these forums now a days. Because all the news is negative, everyone assumes anything that is true is trolling.

I guess when good news comes out I'll be a fanboy again.

Interesting how you people view everything.

This is on he prospect of using clues to determine the true number of XB1's sold as Microsoft will not let us know.

It's quite a different topic.

But everyone here acts like anything not beyond positive is "trolling" the XB1. It's like you all have gone crazy. What if this was some no name company called BoNaFuus. Would you still vehemently call anyone who discusses it a troll if the news is negative? You're solely calling me a troll in this regard because of your irrational blind loyalty to a billions of dollars corporation because you bought there product?
