No. But everyone we have with any ties to any retail reported that it straight up crashed and burned. IAnything is possible theoretically, but it would have to not only reverse it's steep yoy declines but catapult it well over it's typical May performances before the decline started.
Yupp. They should have priced it 150$ for at least the first 3 months (limited time) for it to truly take off. It simply feels like a stripped-down, overpriced machine.
$150 should have been the price, period. Even at $199 its overpriced, since you can get the XBO S, with a game and 4K disc drive, for $20-$30 more. If they really wanted it to be worth that price, it should have come with a 4TB HDD.
I also doubt it made much of an impact on May sales considering it never entered the Top 100 for the month on Amazon.
