Guys....thank you,

I work in retail (I own a small shop) summer is a very slow month for me so i have about 5 hours of downtime every day, while at work i spend most of it keeping up on news,reddit, and video game related news, forums etc...

Today i spent it here reading this topic... It was... amazing "globally in the us" had me laughing out loud for hours the clever photoshop jabs just made it that much sweeter.
So i want to thank the op and the world class troll tamers that made this thread possible you are all very talented,

Sincerely your humble bored to death shop owner.

Its a team effort!

Is it me, or is this months npd going to send the xbox brand's popularity in a downward spiral?

On that one I will say I think it's you.  While XBox certainly isn't doing gangbusters (or catching up for that matter) they still have their large popular IPs to roll out in the next couple years that will keep that particular train chugging along - well behind the PS4 juggernaut.



LOL at the OP and this thread...The denial some people can get in over a game system is hilarious. Could write a psych paper on this.

You mean the halo ramake coming this year? or the other halo coming out next year? I can already see the large appeal this will have to such a broad audience.

I was trolling on the previous post, but this one is serious. MS first party is complete garbage. Halo has been done since bungy left it. Nobody buys systems for racing games like forza. Can you even call the next fable a fable? And gears creators already abandom the game. O yea, thats about it for the xbox original content isnt it. How sad since this time third partys wont sell well on the x1. And I know that there were other games like viva pinata and all thouse kinect sstuff, but none of thouse games sold consoles they only appeal to people who already had the xbox.

I mean both Halo games you mention.  Whether or not the quality of the game is what it was with Bungie is a personal opinion, but the fact is the game's name moves consoles.  Do I think it will be enough to catch the PS4 at any point, even in the US?  Probably not.  Doesn't mean it won't be enough for the system to remain relevant.  Also, current IP is one thing while new IP is another entirely.  Looking back on the last generation the majority of games that give the PS3 its "great exclusives" claim didn't exist prior to (Uncharted, Infamous, Last of Us, Demon's Souls, Little Big Planet, etc) gen 7.  XBox could experience the same turnaround if they devote some time and resource to making it happen.  It's gonna be a long gen, should be fun to see what unfolds.

The real denial is not looking at the facts! This site shows xbox one outselling ps4 in america for the past couple of weeks, and if you look at the past consoles its a landslide for the 360 with 43mil compared to 26 mil of ps3. Early adopters of the new systems may have been in favor of ps4 but it will slowly change as launch hype dies down. Ps4 is losing in japan to wii u for weeks now to but Im sure many are in denial of that too. Europe is going to be ps4 territory but I think Japan will go to Wii u and I have no doubt that xbox will control America!!!

At this rate, it will only take ≈ 500-600 weeks for X1 to catch up PS4 in the US. So what, 9-11.5 years? :P

It's going to be a fight this gen. Remember when stuff like Halo and Uncharted release it's going to give each side a massive boost.

In a few weeks The Last of Us Remastered bundle is going to release, and a month after that the White PS4 Destiny bundle will too. Halo MCC will have to push a lot of units to match that.

Well just last week the PS4 outsold the the Xbox One. It wasn't many weeks. To be honest, the numbers are so close in the U.S. that it could go to either one of them. Xbox One is going to be in the fight of it's life to "control" America because so far the PS4 has been outselling it and/or damn near matching it. It's not going to be easy for them (Xbox) this generation like it was last gen.
