I Wonder If Microsoft Will Eventually Release Limited Edition X360s Like They Done With The Original Xbox (Crystal And Green) Coz Im Not Really For Tearing My X360 Appart Id Rather Wait Till M/S Release 1s Like That.

Or A Black Xbox360 That Would Sit Nicely Next To My Shiny New Ps3 And Wii :)

Lucidmantra6621d ago

They already have Black replacement cases for the 360 ... I think team Xtender makes them, the news was posted like 2-3 weeks ago about them.

For that cooler fan it looks like you have to open the casing of the 360.. I thought MS said if you do that they void warrenty and won't fix yours!!!???? Also anyone know how much the CASES ARE?

Lucidmantra6621d ago

anytime you open the case on a 360 you void the warranty, anytime you open a controller you voide the warrantee. So case mods, LED mods, etc. etc. anything but a faceplate change mod voids your warrantee with microsoft.

Xbox Series X Sales Are Trailing Both Xbox One And 360

Meanwhile, the PS5's sales are leading the PS4's in the same amount of time.

That would be the Xbox Series sales as a whole, not just the Series X. If we consider the latter in isolation, based on those leaked documents, it should be trailing behind the Dreamcast, Wii U, and PS Vita, let alone the much more successful Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

And it's also what the original source claims: "Xbox Series trails Xbox One by 13% and remains slightly behind Xbox 360". So I would suggest for the article to be corrected.

How is it slightly behind the 360 when the Xbox one never passed the 360 at all?

Plague-Doctor271d ago (Edited 1d ago )

Its launch aligned. The 360 had pretty decent sales numbers at the end of its lifespan due to Kinect which is where the One really trailed off as it had no legs. That late gen success is partly why they went so hard on the Kinect at the Xbox One reveal

Vits20h ago(Edited 20h ago)

It's a curve of sales over time. Currently, within the same timeframe, Xbox Series sales are slightly behind Xbox 360 sales, whereas Xbox One sales were actually slightly ahead of Xbox 360 sales within the same timeframe.

Here a example: https://www.vgchartz.com/ar...

It's a bit concerning that people don't seem to understand this.

Its crazy that xbox is less and less relevant with every generation.

got_dam22h ago

It really is too bad. Competition is important. Nintendo is not really Competition. Sega is out of the console business. The OG xbox was fucking awesome. 360 too. It's too damn bad MS can't stay out of their own fucking way.

Vits20h ago

It's sort of impressive how they manage to pull it off. This generation seems to be the worst for Sony in terms of output, with fewer games being developed and released than in any previous console generation. It should have been the perfect opportunity for Microsoft to gain market share through partnerships and game development with their numerous studios. Instead, they have somehow managed to perform even worse.

At this point, one has to wonder if they are intentionally trying to fail.

S2Killinit19h ago

I think the slow down in game developments has been across the board, not just for Sony. I think the console shortages put a hiccup in development. But it also doesnt help that MS never developed its own studios.

jznrpg18h ago

It seemed probable with all the crappy moves and wait for E3’s.

Profchaos17h ago

It's no surprise PlayStation is the market leader you can't just do what they do and expect success it's why Nintendo is still relevant and has put out the 2nd best selling console of all time with the switch.

There's no longer anything unique about Xbox gamepass there's barely any unique software and the identity they spent two generations fostering was killed off in one foul swoop and never recovered

Hotpot16h ago

MS is a service provider trying to get into game industry, while PS and Nintendo are game companies trying to grow their size. The principal behind those two are different and it was apparent in their strategies over the years.

Not good at all but expected since Xbox is not actively pushing their console sales anymore in favor of more ‘game anywhere’ GP subscriptions. I wonder if this will affect future plans for the next console. I can’t imagine them pumping a bunch of R&D into it if they not gonna be marketing and actively trying to push sales.

shinoff218320h ago

That's fairly recent though. They haven't pushed just that this whole gen.

derek16h ago(Edited 16h ago)

Xbox has no say in this whether they are pushing the console or not. They were on the downward trend in the xbox1 gen, this is a continuation.

Rude-ro4h ago

They have never put a lot of cash in console r&d.
It is and always has been basic computer parts.

Microsoft is not a manufacturing company…
Nor are they game developing company.

They are a marketing company with global monopoly on an os system.

Eventually reality catches up.
Their gamepass had no chance when they go more than a decade not making any new and innovative ips.
This is why they are absorbing game developers…
But by doing so, they also spend all of their financial gains.
Ie you either make games to make money, or you spend your money absorbing companies with ips and leaving nothing left to put into future game development.

Developers were not biting to put their games on a subscription service for Microsoft.
Microsoft had nothing of their own to put in their gamepass.
Now they have no money to put into anything at all.

Microsoft’s only blessing this gen is that the pandemic hit everyone so hard, Sony has been forced to cut budgets as well and thus been rather quiet with amazing AAA exclusives compared to previous generations.
Once Sony is back in full swing…
Microsoft will only have their gamepass library of old games to brag about because THE only way to make CoD attractive through a subscription is to offer access to ALL content, seasons and micro transactions, at no extra cost to the gamer.
Of which would not happen.

All of this is self-inflicted damage from Microsoft and Xbox. Contrary to what many fanboys believe, gamepass doesn't harm the industry or create a culture of people not wanting to buy games.

People will buy games if they believe it is worth it or if another game is not already occupying their time. The most popular games on Xbox are live service games and a service like gamepass will have no value to those people.

Gamepass absolutely does. Ms themselves owned up to this during the court proceedings. Some developers won't even make games for Xbox. Now do to this. People most certainly stopped buying games, and only play what's on gamepass. I know a few of them. Hell im one of them, but that more becasue ms trying to kill physical, i wont support that by buying games. At some point itll just be dev mode for me. Deny it all you want but it's a real thing, people stop buying games, especially compared to the others.
