Microsoft chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi:

"People have been more satisfied with the Xbox 360 than the PS3, so in that respect people have less of a need to upgrade in the short-term due to regular updates for the Xbox 360"

*facepalm...

Mehdi is a stupid tool who should be tossed out onto his ass. PS4 is outselling the XB1 because until very recently:

-Price was higher
-Came with a peripheral lots of potential buyers simply did not want.
-Paywalls
-Still weaker specs wise
-On going smug and arrogant additude towards costumers

OR
Everyone took Don Mattrick's advice to heart and stuck with their 360s.

It's selling worse because all the people that owned a 360 last gen are jumping ship. I was less satisfied with things on the 360 like the SEVERE lack of games. And I was less satisfied with things on the ps3 then the xbox like the way the online was setup. But this gen Sony has fixed their issues of online and it's now better then live. MS seems to be fixing its problem of no new IPs but only time will tell with that one. They seem to be falling into the same rut I mean they cancelled a new ip to make more gears. That's their biggest problem.

Laugh it up, but there is some truth to it. A lot of people still have a huge backlog on 360, so they figure why not wait on X1.

Lots of Gears fans are waiting. Same with Halo fans.

I have friends and family doing this currently.

A lot of 360 people switched over to PS4, too.

But that's not the case on the PS3? The console that had far more exclusive titles released in recent years?

This is just more embarrassing PR nonsense.

And you know what? I was satisfied with my 360 console. It was MS's attitude that turned me from the XBOX brand. Comments like these only serve to prove me right.

MS need to stuff a sock in it. Let Spencer make all their announcements and comments from now on.
