Week 27 and it's like Microsoft just gave up

The life of XBO

The Media: Things were great at first, he was a good baby. The mother had a shaky pregnancy early on, but when he was born things were looking good from 1 - 3. But terrible 3's kicked in and unfortunately it lasted for about 7 years until he turned 10. From there things began looking up again we had just started a global tour and he began selling his services at a much better price. Things were looking up. In his teens he was successful, found a few people to take him in, and he went on to college with a few people as well. But at 24 and after college he had a dip in life and didn't know what to do with himself. He rebounded at 25 and 26, but his life just spiraled completely out of control at 27 and never managed to get his life back on track.

XBO: There was a period where I didn't know what to do with myself. I had hit rock bottom, and seen new lows I haven't seen since my grandfather the original XB was in business. That's why I can't wait for my return. I've reinvented myself (literally) and got my life together, and I'm coming back stronger than ever. I added -X to the end of my name to let everyone know that XBO-X means I'm moving on from the old me, "-X" that old me out of the equation.

It's a shame how far Xbox One is falling behind its predecessor in the same timeframe, especially since how far ahead its launch numbers were

It's not that far behind it's predecessor. It's only half a million behind, and much, if not all, of that will be made up after the Xbox One X launches.

Xbox has it's work cut out for it. XBO hasn't seen a single year over 9m according to VGChartz, and holiday 2009 was the start of the PS3 and 360 began taking off like rockets to the casual market.

2010 is the launch of the Kinect which is going to push 360 to averaging 13m for the next 2 years. At best I see XBO-X keeping them even with 360 for the remainder of 2017 by matching its 10m sold in the same time frame, but come 2018 I see 360 taking the lead unless a $199 XBOs really takes off, but considering it's been $199 a few times already those people should have been on board by now.

I'm not necessarily saying that Xbox One will reach 360 lifetime sales, but I think it's an exaggeration to imply that the Xbox One is currently far behind its predecessor taking our current data into account year by year.

You're right though, unless they launch some very popular gimmick for the Xbox One the 360 will be ahead by the end of each consoles respective life cycles.

FallenAngel1984449d ago

Did you see that in the last 12 months in their respective lifecycles that 360 sold 2.84 million more than XO did? It is falling far behind, which is jarring when you consider XO had a far more successful launch than 360.

Don't expect a premium option to somehow close this growing gap

septemberindecember449d ago

Yes, and part of the reason for that is quite undoubtedly a new console iteration on the horizon. Similarly, PS4 sales were down last year for the few months before the PS4 Pro released.

WePlayDirty449d ago

I wonder how inflated the Xbox 360 numbers are due to people buying more than 1 console from RRoD.

NeoGamer232449d ago

I had 4 XBox 360's with RRoD and did not have to buy a single new one. MS replaced them and I didn't have any problems afterwards.

I don't think there were as many RRoD sales as people think.

InTheLab449d ago

Remember that one time there was a very crappy warranty and MS only extended it for threats of a law suit.

Mine died after the warranty expired and my choice was, walk away from 60 owned games or drop another $300

Picture_Dancer449d ago

I've bought 2, my brother and friend the same :)

I think there could be even 10-15mln cocsoles sold that way.

What i would like to see is the vanilla xb1 sales vs the xb1s and eventually the xb1x.

On topic:

Its important to note the 360 had an inflated install base with all those repeat consumers buying more than one because of rrod...

G20WLY449d ago

I agree, but MS were happy enough to acknowledge their 'sales fugures' at the time... They made their bed and now they must lay in it.

DigitalRaptor449d ago

I knew the claim that XB1 was tracking alongside or ahead of the X360 was a bogus one. Even the XB1 doesn't have the repeat purchases the X360 had due to the RROD to help it out and inflate the numbers. We're about 2 (or 3 maybe) away from the end of the gen and XB1 will be lucky if it sells 50 million units when all is said and done.
