They were not false, just slightly innaccurate because at that time I couldn't have know how much X1 was going to sell in the meantime.

I just knew that the price cut will drive X1 sales to close or slightly more than PS4.

And as soon as Halo comes out basically X1 sales will double for the rest of the year.

ok as soon as Halo comes out, only that week the X1 maybe outsell PS4 ok....maybe.

but for the rest of the year? nope, just nope. PS4 will outsell it back for the rest of the year.

Your preditiction was that it would have more units sold by January 2015 and continue outselling it from there. If that doesn't happen then it means your prediction was false not slightly innaccurate. Even if it did not happen until summer or late 2015 that still makes YOUR prediction false. And there is NOTHING wrong with that....the issue is if you will accept that what you thought would happen was false....that's it from what I can see anyway.

My predicition was not false, because I approximated the results, I  claimed this from the start, it is not possible to exactly know the future, I simply estimated it.

My estimations were wrong, and I slightly adjusted them.

Hence my prediction was slightly off, and I made the proper adjustements.


Okay either way you put it that means what you thought, calculated, said , predicited WHATEVER it was wrong period no ifs ands or buts. NOW if you are making a NEW predicition that is fine there is NOTHING wrong with that. But you can't just say you were not wrong because you were. ESPECIALLY seeing as you gave a time frame for it to happen in which was by the Jan 2015.

That's like me saying 2+2=5 when it actually equals 4 and then saying I was not wrong my calculations were slightly inaccurate  -__-

Yeah I noticed that too. I just came back from work and saw all these folks banned. WOW!

 

Anyway, it will be interesting to see when/if the Xbox One will catch the PS4.

Looks like Xbox One didn't top PS4 in NPD. Xbox Wire claiming sales more than doubled though.

Yup, if they had beat the PS4 in June NPD, they would have been shouting it from the rooftops.  The spin is the same they use for Windows Phone and Surface. "Sales terrible?  Well, just put out that we doubled sales!"  The thing is...it's not hard to double when your starting number is so small!

The fact that the PS4 is beating them out, even AFTER the $399 model came out, is very telling.  And, if they are barely keeping pace in the US...they are getting SLAUGHTERED globally!

In light of the recent comments from Nadella, I wouldn't be too sure that the Xbox has a future...at least not one beyond this generation.  I can see them using the BRAND for mobile gaming...but they just CANT keep throwing money at it, hoping that "one day" they will end up with some profit!



LOL not even the same price can MS even win the US.. World wide it is not even a contest.

Guess price wasnt the only reason PS4 was outselling Xbox1 afterall....



1000 post for this thread ? Wow, congrats : D

Tomorrow will be a funny day, i expect something like 150k for Xone and 230 for ps4 :)



Halo will not be as strong a killer app anymore. And Microsoft's image is hurt.

I predict close to Wii U numbers when all is said and done.



I LOVE ICELAND!
