Why do you think the X1 is having a hard time selling even with a price drop?

#31crucialPosted 7/15/2014 6:41:17 PM
People did not buy an X1 when the price drop was announced so a lot of people waited,it's in 26 less country's then PS4,it's summer time were all consoles struggle to sell,it will sell a lot more this holiday since PS4 only has Driveclub yet X1 is getting SSO,Halo MCC,Forza H2,KI S2,Ori and Project Spark will sell a lot more units with those titles and people are still enjoying 360 while a lot of PS3 users made the switch all ready.

Hype alone is helping PS4 since it really has nothing coming this year but this will change,in the end when this gen is over X1 and PS4 will be well over 80 mill units sold so these topics are pretty much hot air,I own both PS4 and X1 yet my PS4 never really get's played since it really has nothing,X1 does not have a great line up but at least it has something,overall both consoles will be great in the end,but you should not be worrying about MS you should worry about Sony about to fold losing all that monies they once had,in a few years Sony is going to be totally broke then what happens to PS4?

Wow! I don't know how anyone could turn a blind eye to this and not call it anything but very concerning. Instead, and I hate to do this to my own community, we have some that want to call almost everybody a troll.

We have other well respected posters on this board that are accused of trolling all because they just want what's best for the One.

because the competitor is the same price w/ stronger hardware. MS had a better deal before and it still didnt sell.

- Price
- DRM / Spying concerns
- Lack of Games
- Failures alienated core gamers*

In that order. 1,2,4 probably speaks more about the absolute failure at MS to properly market the product to consumers early on, then the series of comical reversals just left the product looking confused without any real identity. #3 is a problem with all consoles this gen -- more of an industry problem.

* You need the core gamers to build momentum and market share...usually. Wii was a weird exception but I think all that proved is casuals can't support a system. They buy a game or two and then lose interest.

I've always thought that you were a pretty fair guy. You've gotten on me a few times when I went a little overboard but I do respect you because you never resorted to personal attacks on me and always debated like a champ. I just wish there were more classy guys on that side, like yourself.

Thanks, Laylow! That really means a lot to me. The respect is mutual.

I just wish my community would stop always being on the defensive. Learn to respect each others opinions. I realize things do get a little heated in a debate, but there's never a need to resort to personal attacks and accusations of posters trolling (especially when they voice concerns over the product).

After all, most of us here all have the same goal. We want to see X1 reach the highest of highs (1080p, 60fps), and the only way that can be is customer feedback and Digital Foundry articles.
