What does it matter? Literally every other device in your house, you don’t compare sales to other people’s choices.... do you?

Like “oh my dishwasher is the best selling one, I’m winning at life!”

The difference with games consoles is it brings out the childish attitudes! Just play what you like and stop trying to put other options down!

@starsi360 At least I’m responding to the data. Being on topic helps. Try it some time.

And somehow people still defend the xbox one. Even the x1x just because its a wee bit more powerful. They only did one thing right this gen and it was BC. Still no hard hitting exclusives. Looks like Ill continue without xbox next gen too since pretty much all their releases are on pc too, will look forward to whatever their first party has planned....and hope they dont butcher em to death like some of their other studios....

alexg58728d ago

Agreed with everything you said except the fact that x1x is actually way more powerful than the x1(3-4x I may be wrong tho). Of course the lowest coming denominator and lack of exclusive still made it a pointless release.. oh well🤷🏾‍♂️

Babadook728d ago (Edited 28d ago )

I think he means wee but more powerful vs pro. It’s only about 42% stronger than pro and head to heads don’t suggest it’s much better in most situations. It’s also noticeably more expensive so not something that changes the game for Xbox division.

That red line creeps ever closer to the green one in the lifetime sales chart. It doesn’t seem long until they meet.

Oywee28d ago

So you are basically saying, that both is sucking ass. just one of them is sucking ass better than the other?
I already here suspect that you are not working in the Playstation sales & marketing department, maybe a fanboy much? :)
