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

People still don't seem to realize all that online/drm s*** is gone, I had my cousin ask me about it the other day. In reality, you'd think both would be selling like that until more only on xb1/ps4 games came out, but xb1 just had that bad of a pr hit.


People who knew about the DRM know its gone. But they are also aware that turning it off was just flipping a switch, meaning turning it back on again will be just as easy.


What switch? o_O Also, after being hammered by the media for DRM and having their own fanbase hate them, as well as not selling as much as the PS4, why in the world would they turn it back on? Your posts sucks.


Do new Xbones require the day-one patch to get rid of the DRM check-in? Or have the machines made after the initial launch batch not have to have it removed? If they are still having to disable the feature, there is always the worry they will use it again, otherwise why is it still there.

Stay classy.

The ball is round, the game lasts 90 minutes. That's fact.

Microsoft have always envisioned it as the future of gaming, last I checked they said we weren't ready for it.

So be ready. Sheep.

When the aliens visit this planet they will read this board. Upon doing so they will think the human race is stupid and weak; easy to conquer.

cause it still isnt worth that price either. 300-350 would sell a lot more, but the reality is the wii u is a better option at that price point

As of right now, it's #55 on Amazon's best seller list: http://www.amazon.com/best-sellers-video-games/zgbs/videogames/ref=sv_vg_12#3

I want to have hope that things will get better, but I just don't know if they will.

FWIW the same priced PS4 is #8: http://www.amazon.com/best-sellers-video-games/zgbs/videogames/ref=sv_vg_12#1


I will never understand why ya'll do the things ya'll do.

If it's continuing to sell better than the 360 then they're doing well.

I think people say it's not selling well in comparison to the PS4, but that doesn't mean it's not selling well. Just because one console is winning doesn't mean the other is losing.

Wii U, now there's a console that is undeniably selling terribly, whether you compare it to the PS4 or not. But XB1, AFAIK, it's selling well, it's just not doing better than PS4, and that's fine. I mean it's probably not fine for MS, they want to be no.1, but as long as the sales are 'healthy' that's what really matters to the industry.
