Xbox One is doing better now than it’s ever done in previous years and it’s still falling short of its competition

Goes to show XO’s best isn’t good enough

Neonridr272d ago

imagine how much better it would be doing if it actually had some exclusive games to buy :/

Kiwi66272d ago

Being up year on year isn't bad for a console that many say is doing badly

PhoenixUp272d ago

@ Neo

Amusingly XO is selling better thus far this year than it did in 2015 when it did have more then recent exclusives at the time.

@ Kiwi

In reality selling an average of 8 million units a year is not doing badly.

Kiwi66272d ago

True but there are some who still say it's not doing well enough when compared to the others as they don't look at the bigger picture

This seems to be Xbox's best selling year too date this far. They may not have a game of the year worthy exclusive but they seem to be gaining momentum with The X and Game Pass.

PhoenixUp272d ago

@ Ix

Do you mean Xbox as a brand or just specifically Xbox One? Because XO is still selling less units in the same timeframe than 360 did.

There Is No Greater Power

"It is no coincidence that Game Pass coupled with backwards compatibility and the introduction of the X has seen Microsoft’s year on year sales grow strongly whereas in recent months year on year growth of the PlayStation 4 has plateaued"

Dude ps4 has still sold more this year than x1 worldwide so it doesn’t really matter but congrats on x1 for seeing some growth this year

MasterCornholio272d ago (Edited 272d ago )

Says so in the article.

Also that link they he posted from Xbox hub is NPD not global sales.

"TheXboxHub received an exclusive statement from Mat Piscatella (give him a follow @MatPiscatella for interesting stats and data relating to the gaming market) on how Microsoft’s console has fared so far in 2018: "

i will use a post from me from a previous post

i would hope the sales are up after the horrible 2017 sales that where somewhere in the 6,2 million. after 2016 with 8,3 source: also ps4 sales are flat because last year they had the release of horizon zero dawn to boost sales. i think god of war will fix the flat line ps4 is having

When the quarterly reports come out in a couple weeks you will then see True Domination.

Bhai271d ago (Edited 271d ago )

Yeah, sold in 2018:

PS4: 4,150,701
XBO: 1,598,080

Yep, domination right there, even Switch sold: 3,206,881 in 2k18 ... Hahahaha, dude, since you started selling 'popcorns' last november... The Sony and Ninty crowds are enjoying 'em pretty much... I'll love to have the quarterly report too so far the mere 300K boost xb1 saw is a meagre nothing... the 40+ million gapped PS4 domination is only growing... chum ;) !

Vasto271d ago (Edited 271d ago )


That flew right over your head but it will be crystal clear in a couple weeks. LOL

MasterCornholio272d ago

4 million sold so far in 2018 is pretty good.

Dark_Knightmare2272d ago (Edited 272d ago )

Yes I know the us I was talking worldwide which matters the most

source: so xbox doing better than last year to me is not a accomplishment compare it to 2016 and see how its doing then.
