Good lord look at those numbers for Xbox One. If it's sales are that low in its biggest territory, just think about its sales in other markets for that month

Xbox is dying faster than a snowman in the desert.

Obscure_Observer90d ago

How Xbox is dying if its selling half than PS4 total sales? Has been like this since the start of the generation.

"How Xbox is dying if its selling half than PS4 total sales?"

This is the US we are talking about and not global sales. But if you look at the numbers the gap used to be a lot closer in the past. I don't know how Microsoft let a 1.25x gap in sales increase to 2x gap in sales.

Maybe people are just waiting for an X1X?

notachance90d ago

lol most of the people waiting for XB1X are XB1 users looking to upgrade, the number of XB1 players will stay largely the same.

Wow, Switch is smashing PS4 with all those exclusives.

And yes, waiting for XBOX.

PoopsMcGee89d ago (Edited 89d ago )


Is that sarcastic?

I wouldn't call selling 918 more consoles in the month "smashing" the competition myself (especially since the Switch is a newly released console). It's more accurate to call it a virtual tie rather than a "smashing".

Good numbers all around other than Xbox, though...

I don't think "New Consumers" are waiting to spend $500 on a console that plays the exact same games that the current $249 (selling at a low of $199 in some stores) console is just as capable of running.

XBO-X is a current XBO owner upgrade, and maybe a small group of those new consumers IMO.

If anything I think the issue is more of a limbo price war of consumer vs Microsoft. Informed consumers know the XBO-X is going to be their big push for the holidays hardware wise, so they want to see how low the price can go on the current XBOs, before buying one. They've waited almost 4 years, it's not going to hurt waiting another 2 months (this was July numbers, but it's currently September) to see if the XBOx drops below $199 this holiday.

XBO numbers are going to tumble from July - September.

Destiny might help in September and there are several good games coming to the console in October, but XBO sales might be down until the holiday season kicks in.

ABizzel189d ago

I meant XBOs not XBOx in that last part.

DarXyde89d ago

Unspoken, you're truly adorable.

The Xbox loses another month at home to Sony so you cheer on Nintendo. Delightful!

I'm all for Nintendo's revival, so I'm pretty content. I'm not, however, going to take pride just because some company I don't like didn't sell the most units this month.

Grow up, mate.

IamTylerDurden189d ago


Utter domination. The last weekly recorded numbers by vgc has...

PS4 - 303k

Xbone - 66k

Xbone was tripled by even the 3DS. The xbone is struggling atm in large part bc they simply haven't released any games this year. It's been paltry.

Everyone keeps disagreeing with me but the stocks on Xbox has decreased, its good time to purchase them like a foreclosed house and wait till the next big thing on ms and that where you sell it

Eonjay90d ago

The are probably just making room for the LoRs bundles. and the inevitable Forza bundle in a few weeks.

-Foxtrot89d ago

How is Phil still in charge when he's let 2 Japanese console rivals pass them in their home territory? Maybe the Xbox One X is his final stand and they are waiting to see how it plays out...I'll be very surprised if he makes it into next year to be honest.

I wonder what will happen if the Xbox One X doesn't do anything for them or makes little seriously what will they do?

Xbox One is just falling behind everyone even in their own territory.

DigitalRaptor90d ago (Edited 90d ago )

How bizarre at this point, to see Xbox sales in its home territory being behind that of 2 Japanese giants.

deadfrag90d ago

Not bizarre at all!One have the games to sell consoles the other not so much!

IamTylerDurden189d ago

MS deserves these poor sales. U can't go 9 months and release Halo Wars and Voodoo Vince and expect sales while the competition delivers killers like Horizon, Nioh, P5, GR2, Uncharted, Crash, Zelda, Splatoon, MK8 ect.

XtreemGamer90d ago

One can only imagine what those numbers are for Europe and the rest of the world... My guess is 5:1 for PS4.
