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.

People need to understand that making way too much of a product does not always have bearing on sales being bad. It's maddening how kids here make topics about the x1 being "doomed"


The ONLY reason it's outpacing the 360 sales is because there were shortages on 360s. There were more XB1s available for holiday shoppers AND the idiots buying them to resell on ebay/Craigslist. If you look at the Q1 sales of 360 compared to XB1, you'd see the XB1 sales have taken a nose dive since the holidays are over even with the Titanfall bundle and price cuts.

I refuse to buy XB1 until it's sold without Kinect. No, I'm not a Sony fanboy. See? http://viper.shadowflareindustries.com/images/myroom/DSCN0220.JPG

some people don't seem to understand how MS has been using stats to make things appear different than they are. Comparing 360 sales to XB1 without factoring in the 360 shortage. Comparing PS4 systems sold to XB1 systems shipped. Cloud makes XB1 as strong as 3 or 4 XB1 systems etc.

We all know what is most important though....how many zombies that have been killed in DR3

Not a Sony, MS or Nintendo fanboy. It's nice to be able to be objective and criticize systems, even the one you own.

Shipped, meaning the stores have them in hand, the article goes on to saying that they are not getting sold in stores at the same rate they are being produced and sent to stores.

It doesn't mean the xb1 is doing bad it means very basically supple is much higher than demand, so they are scaling back production until demand catches up, not that they are abandoning the xb1

It really isn't a bombshell. Most are aware that Sony wants to integrate the playstation brand in to multiple devices through Playstation Now. There may or may not be a PS5 system, but that doesn't mean PS is going anywhere.

We're also talking 5+ years down the line and probably closer to 10 for what they have planned. Sony has been better at supporting systems for a longer period of time than MS. Hell, there were sports games coming out for PS2 less than a year ago and systems only stopped being made last year as well.

I really don't see how this article is supposed to be some apocalyptic nightmare for Sony. Technology changes at a rapid pace and I am fairly certain MS will go a similar route seeing as they wanted to move things forward this gen.
