That's what they get for having the audacity to release their game also on PC.

MS strategy is allowing the player to choose where he wants to play: either on a xbox, on Pc, and later, on xcloud. As long as the player choose one of them, MS is winning.

Well, next gen is coming soon.

probably can't come soon enough for them at this rate



Said this before, and I am going to tell it again. If MS does not manage to get their shit together next-gen, the Xbox brand is good as dead and will follow Nokia and Windows (for mobile) into the grave. No amount of second-rate studio purchase will mend the damage that was done in the past 7-8 years.

I might agree if they hadn't expanded the "Xbox" brand outside of their consoles. Their focus has shifted somewhat away from consoles and if next-gen they have a worse performance I imagine the presence and focus they have on console gaming will be very limited after that.

As long as they keep making gaming products in some capacity the Xbox brand will live on. Even if they stop making consoles they might still produce accessories and controllers under the Xbox brand. PC has an Xbox app for their games and gamepass, Xcloud will be xbox branded, etc. But in terms of relevance the Xbox brand is at it's lowest point since 2006 or earlier.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)


The actual figure for gaming revenue is on the gamebiz article.

"gaming revenue dropped 10% to $2 billion....  in revenue for the full year gaming represented $11.4 billion"

Nokia is rebounding pretty well now - though outside of the Microsoft ecosystem, of course.

They should be xbox console only with mass advertising saying hey look buy me I'm an xbox console that has brilliant experiences only found on our console I will guarantee they would be successful 



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

Yikes. Hopefully they rebound next gen.



I wonder if xbox will break 55M...

I think they have a chance to hit 55M, or at least close to this. Anyway, xbox will be under 60M for sure.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Curious to see how the next Xbox does. I think it will be the first console that had no exclusives from start to finish.
