Good job MS, I think the One has a shot at more NPD wins this year besides holidays. They're going to go all-out to capture this market.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

I don't know, once ps4 gets a pricecut it my leve xbox in the dust. Remember, ps4 has been selling more at a higher price. If halo5 doesn't push them a hard nothing will. That's their biggest exclusive. They can try all they want but it's note guaranteed they will take it back.

It's not downplay, I'm being reasonable except for the part about being left in the dust. This gen isn't the ps3 360 era. It has completely changed. You cannot assume xbox one will take the lead. Just as we can't assume ps4 will remain ahead. Ps4 has just as much chance as being ahead for the rest of the gen as xbox has at getting in front. As it stands now ps4 being in front has the higher possibility.

I feel like the people who are posting graphs don't know what they are talking about and are instead posting graphs to distract the readers away from the fact that thye don't know what they are talking about. Of course I avoided all the posts to ocme and commen

That was what I was focusing on. You're saying the US can just be automatically won just from a price drop and no other games.



Great job, Xbone! Although some may argue that PS4 will be the biggest console in the U.S. in the long run (and most probably it will), I get the feeling the negative perception people had about the Xbone is waning. It's starting to look like a more than decent console. In any case, I'm looking forward to what Microsoft announces at E3, and mostly to what Rare IP they will reboot. I will probably still get a PS4 as a secondary console (next to my WiiU) before I get an Xbone, but the possibility that I may get one in the future is becoming more of a likelihood than a simple feasability. Well played Microsoft, well played!
