You keep mentioning Japan. But how many consoles would you think would be sold in Japan if the X1 were available with enough supply?

I kind of doubt it would make much of an impact on the overall sales.

XBONE is dead in Europe and things will be even worse in Japan. Doing ok in America just won't be enough to make up for the other regions. Japan is also not only a negative for XBONE, but a positive for Wii U. The system isn't going to beat the XBONE in America and is going to tie in Europe for the moment, but it'll certainly beat the XBONE in Japan. I keep mentioning Japan not because the XBONE isn't released there, but because it adds a wopping 150k to the Wii U's January sales.

A bit off topic but would you say that the X1 will sell better or worse than the 360 in Japan?

I'd say worse. 360 sales died off and I doubt many gamers are still fans of the brand.



Not too bad of a prediction, should be close.

And yes, the One should sell worse than the 360 in Japan. Japanese publishers have fewer home console games in development and Microsoft is not going to go after exclusives and timed exclusives that are suited for the Japanese market as much as they did for the 360.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I'm bumping this since the other thread was locked and people still seem to have things to say.



Hello. I think your estimate is on the low end for XB1, but if it does end up selling under 280k I won't be totally surprised.



My 8th gen collection

I don't know about January, but I'm not too optimistic about the future of the XBox one.

Last year MS sold 11.1m Xbox 360's, but it seems that this year they will only manage to sell about 6.5m and that's a drop of more than 40% in units sold. Even when you add XBox One sales, the number of units sold will still be below last's year numbers. 

On top of that they must have had huge expenses in launching their new console,  so I guess that it won't look nice at all in their financial statements. Therefore, I believe there's some probability (10-20%?) that the new CEO will just decide to get rid of XBox.

There's no source for the article. In fact, there's no source for any article on that website, I clicked on several articles. Some of the stuff written in there is hilarious, but obviously b.s.
