Forums - Sales Discussion - How well will the first week at $400 predict the future for XB1?

Will we know after this week?

Yes
Maybe
Nope
Only for short term
We'll know after MCC
After a few weeks
After the holidays
After Halo 5
Only for NA
Only for EU

I really don't know, I think the sales could show XB1 can take NA but it's less than a year into the generation so it seems to early to tell. With an equal price and otherwise a pretty equal playing field however it could be very telling, even at this stage.



Buying order: Vita (Damn you Sony and your playstation Plus), Wii U, 3DS

There's no evidence that the Xbox would take NA at price parity. Less considering the building gap.



First week:

XOne 60,000 20,000 N/A 88,000

Second week:

XOne 45,000 15,000 N/A 66,000

Third week:

XOne 38,000 13,000 N/A 56,000

I know it's just its only chance seems to be there, silver linings and all.

We'll really see after this holiday. If X1 doesn't get a big enough boost and a persistent higher base after that, probably not even Halo or Gears can save it.

Aren't HW sales generally ~25% higher in June than in May?

I think i've heard that, but numbers over the summer in general are pretty low to start off with.

Sales for the month will only be slightly more then the last mabye 10%. They need an awesome holiday bundle with no kinect 2 controllers 2 games and 24 months of free xbox live for $399. Same bundle with kinect for $450. Also $350 with 1 game 1 controler no kinect. Just during holidays. Sure they lose there ass off but numbers will skyrocket and you will get more exciting exclusives, game sales and momentum. Then to $425 for game, controler, 6 months live and no kinect. $499 with kinect, game, controler and 12 months live. To make sure momentum doesn't die down too much. Working overtime and get some kick ass games out sooner will also help, with getting at least 2 games in japan that is extremely popular there and having it an xbox one eclusive along with $50 equivelent cheaper price then ps4 with extras, like game and controler. When it's released in japan this year.
