What Exactly is Wrong With the Xbox One? (Saleswise)

#1QuadForce878Posted 8/7/2014 3:40:34 PM
Microsoft pretty much did everything the consumers told them too. They got rid of the DRM, allowed indies to self publish, released a Kinectless version of the Xbox One for sale, and the Xbox One is currently the same price as the PS4. Even with all the changes, why the PS4 continuing to out sell the XB1 by nearly double on a weekly basis when the systems are virtually identical with the same price tag?

Price.

Rocket Science.

Price is to high since it is weaker compared to ps4. simple as that. It has everything else.

Worldwide, Sony is just a much stronger brand. That will not change.

However, Xbox One is barely behind in US, UK, and Australia. In US, it is behind by about 600K units despite being $100 more expensive for most of the time.

Price cut just happened in June. Xbox will win US, UK and Australia this gen, but NOT by the margin 360 beat PS3 (17 million difference in north america)

Some people are still not trusting MS even though they bowed the consumer. They think MS is just going to suddenly revert everything back to the way they wanted at E3.

This too.^ But this applies more to those in the know than the average consumer.

Price cut will change the trajectory and still June and I'm almost 100 percent sure they lost July as well.

No it will not win the the US or UK. They can't even win a month so what is going to change that? All your hopes riding on Halo/Gears? Those franchises are declining....

Exactly, which means most are making their decision because of what their friends or co-workers tell them. If the ratio of Sony to MS fanboys on this site is anywhere near the same in the real world, that would explain a lot.
