X1 had the highest game sales in january. X1 is the home of real gamers for sure.

Honestly, it depends on how much they lose by. If they lose by a large margin (even with the PS4 supply still constrained through most of January) I think they'll have to be some internal discussions about a price drop/budget model/kinect-less model. I'm not sure how long they can sell weaker hardware at a higher price.

Looks like they did lose big this January. Geoff Keighley just tweeted this: https://twitter.com/geoffkeighley/status/434102813178597376

per @LuckyLongworth: PS4 was #1 in sales for next gen consoles in January, nearly doubling the nearest next gen competitor.

That's not good. I think they will for sure be discussing some things; especially losing in the home country like that.

I just saw that, I legitimately think Microsoft is in some trouble.

It seems the PS4 has dominated in January, huh? Why are there more games being sold on X1 though? This is a serious question. How does the PS4 possibly double the X1 in sales, but sell less games?! I am baffled by this.

Well as long as they are in the 150-200k range it isn't a big deal.
If LeBron shoots below 56 percent for the regular(obviously) season(2013-14) I'll close my account.
