Wow, I can't believe the xbox 360 with red ring of death is beating the Xbox one in the same time frame. Xbox one is truly a failure . The xbox one needs a lot of exclusive games

XB1 may not be lighting up the sales like the PS4 but it is not a failure. Especially in relation to these numbers. I can at least acknowledge that the 360 was beating the xbo because of RRoD and the percentage of units sold as replacements. The same cannot be said about the sales of the xbo. Pretty much every unit sold is a legit sale and not a defective replacement.

Come on Jag.... even you are smart enough to know that. People proclaiming RRoD was what made the 360 numbers so high in comparison to the PS3 but now the same people wont admit that the xbo is actually doing better than the 360 because they add in RRoD.

If people are going to pick a narrative the least you can do is stick with it.

Ah, I love how the message changes in order to suit ones goals. I remember last gen all the 360 fans constantly said Microsoft didn't count the RROD sales. Now that the argument benefits them the RROD consoles were counted and that's why it's beating xbox this gen.

But of course regardless xbox is doing terribly this gen there are more console consumers than ever before yet xbox is selling far worse than last gen. Xbox even with the launch of a new console can't even outsell PS4 in it's best region as Novembers NPD showed. PS4 is more than tripling xbox sales globally month after month and Switch if it continues to sell the way it has will outsell xbox before the end of the gen.

Yumi... Everyone knows MS counted a sale as a sale even if it was a replacement sale. What MS did not count were repaired units. Ones sent in to be repaired and then sold as refurbished because to be refurbished they had to have already been considered a sold unit previously.

Now as to your other point, i don't believe there are more console consumers this gen. If you look at the solid number of the PS3 at 85+ million... that's about what it should be this gen. If you are looking at the over 100+ million the Wii sold then ask yourself this. What percentage of those units sold were from the casual market and is the casual market buying console this gen like last?

yumi76337d ago


Your simply wrong, hardware sales and spending are up since last gen. Aside from minor dips the market has grown nearly every year for more than a decade.

Considering ms predicted a billion xbone sales at the start of the gen xbone is a complete failure. MS can't even beat themselves lol.

@ darth

Except PlayStation 3 continued selling at a faster rate than Xbox 360 since day one with launch aligned numbers and never fell behind like the Xbox One is currently doing.

That's fine in a comparison to the PS3 and xbo or PS3 and 360. But this is a comparison to the 360 and xbo and like i said. if people are going to use RRoD as a way to downplay the 360 sales then they need to apply the same narrative here as well.

Take off a percentage (lets say 10% for giggles) and you can clearly see the xbo is selling better. But for some reason people dont accept that now.... I wonder why?

This is comparing Xbox One to Xbox 360. If you look at the chart even with RRoD the XO was able to keep ahead of 360. It wasn’t until after the first 40 months, or 3 years and four months that the XO started to fall behind the 360. So it’s not really accurate to be saying that RRoD is the root cause of this happening.

It’s clearly XO’s own inability to keep up the pace that caused it to fall behind its predecessor in the same timeframe. This becomes increasingly apparent when you consider that the Xbox One S was on the market and how it failed to dramatically increase sales of the hardware like the PS One, GBA SP, PS2 Slim, DS Lite, PSP 2000, PS3 Slim, 360 S, & 2DS did to great extents.

In relation to PS3, even with RRoD the 360 was unable to sell at a faster pace with aligned numbers which is why it got outsold.

Nah, it's not a failure, it's making MS money and quite a bit I presume. That it's doing less well than it's main competitor is probably something MS is not fond of but it means they will do everything they can (hopefully) to turn it around. And I really do hope they invest in more studios.

Dang Xbox One S is doing a terrible job at excelling sales during the longterm

The days when Xbox One was the fastest selling Xbox console are long gone
