Well I cant see any reason why someone looking to move to next gen wouldn't happily chose the ONE looking at the situation as it stands right now.

This will change of course over time, but as of right now the ONE looks like a better bet to me. Garden warfare and Titanfall alone should be a decent draw for people.


Eh, not everybody wants a CoD clone and PvZ is more than likely coming to the PS4?

There is not a single exclusive game the XBOne has/will get that can touch DW8 to me

right.  ok.

you are entitled to your opinion

I do think it is a minority opinion though.



I'm not really here!

Ok wait.

So if this bundle is already available for pre-orders, whats going to happen to all the existing XBOne's sitting on store shelves ?

M$ is cannibalizing their sales from now till Titanfall's release then.

You realize this is for one region out of 13 the X1 is currently released in? To answer your question, its called "retailer-specific incentives".

The bundle releases in every country the X1 is currently available in.

wow im out of the loop. I thought the Titanfall bundle was only for UK to coincide with the UK-specific price drop.

So you are saying that the price drop is UK specific, yet the Titanfall bundle is available in NA/all other regions?

For US and UK gamers The One has to be the choice. It has currently more exclusives, Titanfall this gens most hyped game and an awesome price point for entry. Many who haven't bought yet could hardly not choose Xboox One at this price with the gennerations most praised and hyped game so far. Being able to play Forza 5, Killer Instinct, DR3 and Ryse are just bonuses. With Quantum Break and and Sunset Overdrive just around the corner to.

This Buundle will make some very big waves.

Just checking, you do know that this bundle is limited, right?

Don't agree with Selnor (far too optimistic) but whilst it is limited they want stock on par with Day one. I think at the least there is gonna be a few hundred thousand of these bundles WW, if not more.


I'm amazed seeing how selnor already found the most hyped game in the gen only 3 months after it started...

There is a game this gen more hyped than Titanfall?

Kinda difficult to assess since Titanfall is so close to launch, which obviously means that Titanfall hype is on its peak right now. But Destiny and the Division, I can definitely see gather similar if not more hype.

Oh... that'll make NA sales more interesting. Guess it depends how many MS will allow to be made.

I think Titanfall would help a lot more if it wasn't on Xbox 360. Sure some will make the jump just for Titanfall, but others are going to see its available on 360 and see they don't have to spend the $500 just to play the game they want. Other than graphics there is no difference to the games is there? I can actually see this game selling better on Xbox 360 than Xbox One. Putting it on 360 just seems counterproductive to what Microsoft wants, which is get people on the Xbox One.



I expect it to have a 100-120k base line after the price cut.



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m
