Woah I knew things were bad...
But I never thought it would go down like this, wow


I doubt many people thought things were that bad.

It was no secret the Xbox One was in a bad position already (rapidly deteriorating as well) but ceasing production so soon ?

I don't think I have ever heard word of a console's production being halted in the first year, save for ones that were abandoned like the VirtualBoy.

God relax. The system is selling very well


>Selling well
>Slowing/Stopping production

???


It's sold 4.4 million. That's out pacing 360 sales by 60 percent at this stage.
"


Was it as easy to walk in and pick up a 360 this soon after release? MS likes to play with numbers to paint a rosey picture. ex. units shipped instead of sold, number of hours people have played etc,

Some people say this is common practice. If it is, I just wanna know why Microsoft is so public about it. Like they're putting another nail in their own coffin, which already has plenty of nails in it.

Millions of hard working Chinese kid labors will go staving this summer.

In the meantime, Microsoft has a record profit.

There isn't a team.

We aren't all tied to these console producers the way you seem to think we are.
