35% of you really think the Xbox 360 is only going to sell 23 mil this yr?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - 35% of you really think the Xbox 360 is only going to sell 23 mil this yr?

So, out current poll is How many units will the 360 have sold LTD by Jan. 1, 2009?

The majority of the people on this site say that the Xbox 360 is going to sell 23 million by this time. Don't you think this is a pretty low estimate? Only 2.53 million more until 23 million, and we have 4 months of the year left, with two of them being holiday months. The price cut has been announced for NA and Japan.

 

Let's throw some numbers out there... lets say the 360 only sells an average of 120,000 per week for the rest of the year. There is 18 more sales weeks on VGchartz left until the end of the year. So 120,000 X 18 = 2.16 million. That leaves us with 370,000 left to reach 2.53 million. This is without factoring in the holidays or even the price cut.

 

The Sony fanbase on this site grows larger each day I swear.

 

Does anybody else think this is a horrible prediction? And if you made these predictions on the current poll, please stand up and explain yourself.



Just kiss the tip.

The 360 fanbase, in turn, is becoming as arrogant as Microsoft itself.

Don't get me wrong Xen. I am not a 360 fanboy of any sort. I own all three systems, I just think that this is a very narrowminded prediction by many members of this site. I am not trying to rag on anybody, and I am not trying to start any sort of pissing contest, I'm just wondering what the logic behind these predictions are.

Nice cherry picking dood



@ Arkk

Who is to say that people rating it 23 mil are Sony Fanboys? I myself said 26, but I really wanted something between 25 and 26...

It could have been Nintendo Fanboys, or PC fanboys for MS stealing all of their exclusives :P

Yeah because saying that going for 2nd place is the epitome of arrogance...

My logic is the PS3 overshadowing the 360 in Japan and Others, making the 360 sell mainly in the USA. The 360 is cheap in Europe - and still doesn't sell well... and no cuts are gonna help the system in Japan, just games (don't know how well IU does). I did screw up with my Wii predict though. Sorry for taking a swing at you.

Look, 30% thinks that Sony will sell 3mil only too.

The MS fanbase on this site grows larger each day. I swear.

Now because of your ignorant thread I will vote for 23 mil until I cant anymore

Sorry, I must have not stated it correctly. I didn't mean that they were all Sony fanboys at all. It seems like a large portion might have been, but by no means is it all fanboys.

 

Like I said, I just want to see what the logic behind the predictions was when they made that decision.
