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

Unnecessary.

I'm pretty sure somebody who puts that in their sig can take it being quoted back at them without having a nervous breakdown.
Enough of the special snowflake protection racket. As demonstrated by theirs responce, the OP is cool with it.
If anything, I would question why anybody could have that as a sig and nobody ever comments upon it in any way.
I was going to mention it myself before I saw it already came up.

You should have left that alone.

A minimal impact at best. 4K, One X, PUBG, are all targeting the same hardcore market. There is no new flood of customers to be reached with the above. Cheap One S bundles will have a far bigger impact.

How is pubg targeting the hardcore market? It's basically turning into the next big thing.

Well, it's not targeting me in the slightest, nor my kids, or my wife... What is the universal appeal of PUBG? It will find a place next to CoD, Fifa/Pes and Battlefield, but it's no Minecraft or GTA.



Are you a relative of JohnLucas? Ridiculous predictions run in his family.



Carl is a Piplup hater and deserves to be punished eternally.

I honestly don't see XB1 passing PS4 even in the US. As it stands, MS's less than stellar lineup has made the console average at barely 100K a month in NPD throughout this year. X1X is going to sell very well to the Xbox devoted, but it's not going to attract a whole lot of new users. It's going to sell less than XB1S, no doubt. Plus, if we've learned anything from the 360, it's never underestimate the power of third party marketing. As it stands, Sony has the majority of the strongest through the holidays, as well as more into the first half of next year. With God of War and Spider-Man around the corner, PS4 is guaranteed to do killer numbers well into next fall.

With 4k booming i wont be suprised it does better than i am expecting. Gamers forget PS2 and PS3 came out the gates very expensive. Price isnt the issue with the X. In fact its priced quite well. Considering last gen we would pay similar for a slim model version with no benefits to the hardware at all. The industry will look at the X as the lastest Slim machine and over time as the price reduces it will sell even better due to its value.



If the OP is correct about lots of bundling with 4k TVs, that would help a lot. Plus, the holiday season is typically very good for MS relative to Sony. If PUBG also hit before Xmas, that would be huge. Of course, PUBG won't hit until next year, and I doubt TV bundles will sell millions of consoles. So, I don't think we'll much more than the usual MS holiday bump. It may be a slightly better bump than usual, but still just a bump. Even in the absolute best case scenario, XB1 will not overtake PS4 in the US. At the very most, it would outsell PS4 for 2017.

You know what? Screw the naysayers, I agree that in NA, XB1 sales will surpass ps4 sales eventually. LMAO at the people calling this impossible,the gap isn't as big in America as you think it is. But I will admit that it can't catch up this year, but it could close the gap a bit in the holiday months.

With a five hundred dollar console? If MS isn't talking about aggressively dropping the price (they will), this is really a fantasy at this point. There's not much of a compelling exclusive lineup coming to justify the purchase of Xbox platforms for 2017-2018 unless MS hijacks EVERY popular Steam game, but that's not going to translate to instant console success. It's mainly for those that went through the past 4 years of hurt feelings instead of playing games. The majority of these, like the S, will be people replacing their consoles, not new customers. It'll do great at first, but I don't see it having legs.

So you're saying cod/fifa is for hardcore gamers.....lol. Again, just cause somethimg doesn't appeal to you doesnt mean it can't be mainstream. Just cause the recent cod games don't interest me in the slightest, doesn't mean that they aren't still popular, consistently being the bestselling game of each year.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Great response. Now all we can do wait and watch to see what happens.
