Really...seems this Day One Edition purchaser was "Madoff-ed by Microsoft."

OMG do you think sale numbers are supposed to affect my enjoyment of the console or something!? Why else would you post news links about sale numbers if it's not an attempt to get me to like my console less? Huh, TC!?

Sales don't matter.

It could if it went like DC. Lack of support and then funding for new games from Sega.. Then it got the plug. I'm sure stuff like that happening to X1 would affect you. Or hey, a better example would be Xbox original. Not even 4 years, then here come xbox 360 and they ditch the original. Sales sucked for the original compared to PS2, so they wanted to get 360 out first.

Sales only matter when your favorite console is winning.

I get the feeling when June comes around you won't see any of these guys posting sales data.

I always wondered why the NPD is so important for people that have no immediate stake(s) in Microsoft's performance? At the end of the day, people will probably buy the PS4 more because the price for fees are cheaper and the hardware advantage is with the PS4. I don't mind it because all the talk is overblown. I cannot really tell the difference between 792p w/ Titanfall and 1080p inFamous outside of the comic strip vs sci fi feel. Forza looks gorgeous on the X1 anyways. Each to his or her own.

These types of topics are ridiculous, however, I doubt the new SKU, will out sell the PS4. Just don't think it will happen. We will see though, just a month away good sir.

Sales are interesting but I wouldn't say they really matter that much to me. I don't see a sign of any of them going belly up. I know the Wii U has been under 100k monthly for a while but Nintendo will still support it with their first party titles. Which is the reason why I bought a Wii U.
