Anyway, i doubt anyone is waiting for a $500 console that plays the same games as base XB1. XB1 isn't doing well because all throughout this 1 quarter all the games that were in conversation are on PS4 and Switch. There's no exclusive software to get people interested into purchasing the console. A $500 one that plays games a litte better isn't gioing to change XB sales.
No one is waiting for the X1X? Then why did it do well on Amazon?
So this is why Microsoft is pushing cross-play on other platforms.
Or maybe gamers wanted cross-play.
Well, let's not forget that NPD is the one who started being a dick first. They freely gave out numbers for years, like Media Create still does to this day. But, decided not to any longer. While that most likely had to do with requests from HW manufacturers whose numbers weren't that great, that's still BS and NPD should have told them to fuck off. Even still, we had leakers that weren't really sought after. My guess is even though they were leaking numbers, the HW manufacturers (most likely Sony and Nintendo) didn't care if the numbers were discussed by a few geeks in forums, they just didn't want them plastered all over sites for everyone to see. Now, we have MS selling very poorly and NPD has been encouraged to send out their goons to shut down any and all leaks. It's really a situation that shouldn't have happened.
You think MS told NPD not to release HW numbers? Yeah, sure.
Times change. People change. Places change. Languages change. One thing remains constant.
ethomaz is a dumb cunt.
Your last statement is true and I find it hard to believe that there are people here who still defend him.
Hmmm... Why doesn't Microsoft want to share numbers anymore?
Take a wild guess...and it started in 2014 when Satya Nadella became CEO of MS.
