So apparently Xbox One in the UK generated more revenue than PS4 at 2 million consoles sold, which even if we factor in the initial Kinect bundle price, shows that there were no crazy promotions going on. Until PS5, it was in fact the highest earning console of all time at 2 million sold at week 104 (slightly ahead of PS4 and comfortably ahead of PS3).

To top it off, X1 launch aligned so far is estimated to have sold better than Series XS in both UK and US, Xbox's two biggest markets. MS has to shift focus from Series S to X and somehow massively improve the production of the latter asap before PS5 dominates the mindshare. Making Series S the main platform may prove a mistake in the long run unless they adapt.

I think ur confused bcuz it's not revenue including games or stuff outside the console sale. It's revenue from console set at average price, it's just multiplying 2 million with the average price.  Since Xbox One was $9 higher than PS4 on average total revenue from console sold, total revenue is slightly higher when the 2 million mark was reached. Honestly this data isn't very useful except for maybe how fast these consoles got to 2m.

I think you're missing the point.

This wasn't intended to show that Xbox One was doing "better" than PS4 by any meaningful measure. It's obviously not close when PS4 achieved 2 million in 75 weeks vs X1 in 104 at virtually the same price. But the data reveals that the X1 was selling at a pretty high average price in line with PS4, meaning it wasn't carried by some crazy deals. That is unless the deals weren't factored into this data.

Software sales aren't relevant to a topic about hardware sales and a side discussion about deals/promotions. The truth is, in the UK, X1 sold better and probably at a notably higher average price than Series XS. The same likely applies to the US. Though the Series XS is doing better in most other countries according to estimates.
