Am I being pessimistic (or just realistic?) if I say I dont think xbox 1 will go over 20mil by end of this year?
I also dont think xbox1 has the holidays season in the bag..... PS4 hasnt had a price cut YET.....
its going to happend this year (before the holiday season) and its going to hurt xbox sales.
Sadly you're right, there is a console that will sell like crazy with a price drop despite it having an incredibly mediocre line-up. This gen is so depressing!
If we look at sales right now, for this month:
#4 on amazon ; PS4
#51 on amazon; Xbox1 (ass creed bundle)
Its been like this most of this month, a HUGE gap amazon chart #'s.
Bigger than I remember seeing before.
We could have a month where NPD is like (guessing from amazon chart numbers):
PS4 = 400,000+ sales
Xb1 = 200,000+ sales
If Xbox 1 is to sell 20+ million (by end of year), it needs to not just gamble it all on holidays.
Because Sony could do a 100$ price cut and ruin that holiday sales spike XB1 had last year.
I hope Halo 5 does well. Xbox could use a win.
