The XBOne X is already a niche product for a niche audience. Microsoft's offer translates into buying a console more expensive than its competition (at release it will be the most expensive console in the market) through nothing more than horse power. All the XBOne games will come to the regular model, and has very few exclusives compared to its competition.

If the XBOne X had been released alongside the PS4 Pro, it would have stood a better chance. Now it's too late.

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Ahhhh...this post makes a lot more sense now.

A little harsh.

Unnecessary.

You're right. I'm sorry for the rude comment OP.

VGChartz shows the gap at 2.66 million.

Yeah, exactly. You expect the Xbox One to outsell the PS4 by 3 million in 2018?

I suppose you never correctly heard me the first time, so allow me to repeat it.

This is completely nonsensical.

I'm not sure if even the people at Microsoft believe this but they're probably hoping for that scenario. To be honest I don't think PUBG will be as big on consoles as it is on PC but I could be wrong. Even then I don't see MS doing the numbers you suggest. Keep in mind I own an Xbox One and will be upgrading to a One X and I still can't see this happening. I think sales may spike around launch and they may hold at a respectable number around the holidays due to sales but then reality will kick in.

Love the product, not the company. They love your money, not you.

I also foresee Xbox One sales surpassing the PS4 sales for the United States before the end of 2018.

.... theres like a 3m gap? and its just growing and growing.

I dont see Xbox One closeing the gap, the XOX hasnt suddenly made xbox a more popular or selling brand.

Exclusive wise things still look dire for the xbox, both in 2017 and 2018 vs the PS4.

Now let me address the "ELEPHANT" in the room.  PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.  Microsoft was able to negotiate publishing rights with Bluehole's game, but the question is how long is the exclusiveness?  If it's a month to 3 months, I don't think it will make too large of an impact on Microsoft's console sales.  But it they have a year of it being an exclusive or an exclusive period, then this is the game changer.  Bluehole has been quiet now on any information regarding this.  PUBG is a beast on PC currently, and will be as well on console.  10+ million sales on Xbox One easily.  This game is barely in early access, only has one map, few game modes and is selling like hotcakes.  New maps are on the way and mods are being discussed.  This game will sell consoles (alot of them). 

PC users enjoy differnt things than console users.... a game like CS-GO is pretty popular on the pc, but would it sell well on a console?

Its way to early to assume PUBG will get 10m on the xbox platform alone, or turn things around for xbox.



Number of days to reach 50M from 40M : 198 days
Number of days to reach 60M from 50M : 187 days
Number of days to reach 70M from 60M : 175 days
Number of days to reach 80M from 70M : 227 days

So what took PS4 almost 4 years to do, Xbox One will suddenly do in roughly 1 year?

I very much doubt that.

And regarding the XBX, ~20% of PS4's sold worldwide, from the day that Pro launched, are a PS4 Pro.
That's not the same as saying that 20% of the existing PS4 userbase upgraded to PS4 Pro. That would mean 12 million Pros sold.
No, there have been about 2,86 million PS4 Pro sales as of July 15, according to VGC by my calculations.
Sony announced 47.4 Million PS4 Units sold as of September 2016.
61,7-47,4*0,2=2,86.

And you're estimating that there may be 3-6 million XBX sales (or intentions to buy) just this year? For a system that does not have the benefit of being strong in all markets worldwide, but primarily has to do this in the US, and at a price of $500?

That too sounds very unrealistic.
