PS4 will be up YoY, too but they won't eat XB1 sales away. At least not like you expect.
And the XB1 game lineup for 2016 is even bigger than 2015
Gears4, Crackdown3, Scalebound, Sea of Thiefs, QuantumBreak, HaloWars 2, Forza Horizon 2, Recore + possible unanounced games
vs. Halo5, Forza6, TombRaider, Gears Remaster, Rare Replay, Fable
bold prediction, that will probably not happen ;)
If I had to guess at this point I'd say that 5 or maybe even 6 games on this 2016 list will only sell in the range of 1 million units (at best).
sure. Recore and Scalebound won't sell much units.
But maybe they will attract a different and new audience, that will buy and xbox 1 to buy those games.
the selling power of halo in the holiday vs the full 2016 lineup over the whole year. thats the question.
but as i said. that is juts one point. the bigger impact will be a slim version and a new pricepoint
Sure, I can acknowledge that a pricecut would have a way more significant impact than most of those games.
Btw. I was talking about Scalebound, Recore, Crackdown, Forza Horizon 2, Quantum Break and Sea of Thieves (or is this game free 2 play? I'm not sure)
Some could go higher, up to maybe 1.5 million or so, but I'd honestly be surprised if one of those games hit 2 million on X1.
