If the XBO official price will be still 349$, i think will be down YOY during November and December imo.

Halo is big, but last year XBO sales was insanity thanks Advanced Warfare and Unity bundle.


Do be aware that just because  a console does not get a price drop does not mean it can't sell more units. 

Especially if there is targeted marketing which gives users the perception of better value.

I don't have any access to first hand information. So it's all good.

Just for know, what's happen with Aqua? He was the guy that said "7-10k gap" between PS4 and XBO?

The Xbox 360 peaked in 2011, what's your point?

I guess Kinect helped.

After the first years a console needs something else to peak like Morpheus or the MS response if they reach the popular market.

I don't think Kinect really helped much:


The launch of the 360S is what kicked the 360 into high gear and it maintained those levels from then on to Q1 2012. The Kinect may have provided a short-term boost, but I doubt millions of people were suddenly buying a 360 just for Kinect. There's never been a case that I'm aware of of an accessory providing such a big boost to sales, not even in the short term. Meanwhile, the launch of new models can often have a similar effect to that of a price cut, providing boosts lasting many months, which we saw the previous year with the PS3 Slim. Europe shows the same thing, with the 360's highest baseline period starting with the 360S and continuing through the end of 2011. Even in Japan the 360S provided a bigger boost than the Kinect, though neither did much of anything to boost long-term sales there.

Aqua's employer found out he/she was leaking the numbers, and called her/him into their office and basically said it's your job, or you stop.

PS4 will be up YoY, too but they won't eat XB1 sales away. At least not like you expect.

And the XB1 game lineup for 2016 is even bigger than 2015
Gears4, Crackdown3, Scalebound, Sea of Thiefs, QuantumBreak, HaloWars 2, Forza Horizon 2 , Recore + possible unanounced games
vs. Halo5, Forza6, TombRaider, Gears Remaster, Rare Replay, Fable


Forza Horizon 2 re-releases in 2016???? There's a remastered version already

Anyway Forza Horizon 3 gets release in 2016 but it's clear some are underestimating some of the sales of those games.



Proud to be a Californian.

Very poor for God of War 3 but it was expected.
