I think that the XB1 is going to win huge in America. (American) football is the largest sport in the U.S., and Microsoft were smart to cater to this. Their tech is impressive, it just is. The Kinect2 will probably provide what we originally wanted from the first one. And, they are going to have good games, including the multi platform games. Cable tv is huge in the U.S., and they were smart to leverage this in their new console. Gamers, of course, aren't as happy, but MS is planning to make up for that at E3. Me personally, will get the PS4. I loved my 360, but I'm finished with MS's greediness. But, I'm a gamer, first and foremost. Many people will purchase the XB1 because of all of the tv features, plus, it plays games. MS are a smart company. I know for sure, they will win the U.S., by a long shot. I'm not sure about the rest of the world. Lots of people laugh at that, but MS has done incredibly well this gen, better then I thought they would. Yes, I don't think they will ever win the hearts of Japan. But, MS has lots of cash to spend, and the XB1 will be advertised like nothing previously in gaming. It will be interesting to see how it will all unfold. I think we all are. I, for one, am glad to be back with Sony.
But, as far as using Amazon for solid data, I wouldn't recommend it. What are the preorders from Gamestop, or Best Buy? I think that these would be more beneficial.
