Total lack of 1st party games. The first Xbox had Microsoft pushing for a lot of great exclusives. You could say this about the 360 too for the first half of it's life. But the XBO is totally lacking. Where is Scalebound? Where is Project Gothem Racing? For a company selling a games machine how has this happened?
But we know how this happened, its a total failure of management at Microsoft. From creating a console with features no one wanted, mis-management of 1st party studios to behind the scenes stuff like ID @Xbox (remember that?!). The console sucks because the people that made it cocked up every single aspect around it.
Here's the big difference between Xbox and Sony. When Sony fucked up the PS3 launch, they worked hard on the one thing that could actully get them back in the race; Games.
Microsoft have spent their time doing Xcloud, Backward compatibility and pushing for cross play. All nice things, but a complete waste of time if you don't have the number one thing people actually want the console for; GAMES!
You could say that they are holding back now to bring everything to scarlet. But that's a shit excuse. When Sony fucked up, they made damn sure that by the end of the PS3's life it had killer games on it. How come Microsoft haven't managed this too? Because Xbox management is inept.
That's why Xbox sucks.
Forza Horizon is Project Gotham racing as a matter of fact its way better then Project Gotham racing. The X1 overall software lineup is already better then the 360's was and that is with still almost a year to go before the next system launches. Only people that are hating on the X1 are people like you that actually don't own one or never even tried one.
Forza Horizon is most certainly not PGR. Bizarre Creations made very unique games, Forza Horizon is not a Bizarre Creations game.
Also assuming that some people who use a website to track sales data of video games (A very niche section of hardcore gamers), have not even used an Xbox One is a very high risk assumption.
Sony want to make money by selling art, Nintendo want to make money by selling fun, Microsoft want to make money.
