Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Is the Xbox One a failure?

Is XB1 a failure?

Yes! 615 40.51%
 
No! 711 46.84%
 
Gimme dem numbers! 68 4.48%
 
I pity Wii U :( 121 7.97%
 
Total:1,515

too early too tell, while xb1 is selling better its marketing , promotion and price slashes and bundling are quicker than the 360 so i guess its losing more money
we will open this discussion in late 2016/2017 imo

They lost almost half a billion dollars in the first 8 months, ever since then I know the sales increased drastically, in terms of popularity the xbox one is a success, financially, I don't know, Ido know that the whole xbox live servers and all that costs a pretty penny to maintain.


They're also making $2 billion a year (at the very bare minimum) on Xbox Live Gold subscriptions right now.


Question, when Microsoft states that their gaming division loses such amount of mney des that include Xbox Live memberships income? or that's a separate division?



Factually and financially a massive failure.

Fans can best argue opinions on trivial success.

It's included. 

Heck for a while they even included Android royalties to cover up Xbox loses.



Foolish fools who foolishly look like fools by their foolishly foolish opinions.
XO is selling LESS than it's direct competitor, the PS4. Therefore Xbox One is a complete and utter FAILURE. Tracking above X360? Bright future with Windows 10? WHO CARES! A console can only be considered successful when it outsells its competition, otherwise it's sales are CRAP and the console, along with it's failure half-assed games, also becomes CRAP!
[/sarcasm]

Nah, XO is doing pretty well and if Microsoft keeps getting stuff right it might be able to outsell X360 (which sold really well) as long as they can keep the XO tracking over it and increasing the gap. It'd be nice to see all those "hurr durr xbox one will only sell 30/40M lifetime it's a failure no one likes it hurr durr" predictions totally crushed. It's a nice console and deserves big success (at least in my opinion) :)

Fuuny is that your first rant actually explains what your second paragraph is.

How come? I don't get it. The rant was a generic (yet exaggerated) "hurr durr xbox sucks hurr durr" comment Xbox haters typically say around the internet. My actual opinion is "It's doing great, and I hope it performs even better and put the naysayers to shame!". I don't think Xbox One is a failure nor crap in any way, but rather the opposite.

(Keep in mind it's almost 4AM here so I'm not thinking very straight lol.)

They arent naysayers, they just are realistic and dont kid thems selves like you are.  X1 is not doing great.

You know why x1 haters are more right then xbox defenders, they have reality and facts supporting their negative xbox opinion.  You just have wishfull thinking backing you.

There is a list of facts why x1 is currently a failure, its been posted.  Only counters to it habe been hopefull opinions.

You looking to get the kid banned, look at his post.  

I bet you report anything to the mods that does not fit you love for the xbox.  You really need to get over you corporate loyalty.  I see that you cant argue reality that x1 is a failure.  you have to resort to back door mod favrotism.  no wonder so many on here have such a negatice opinion of them if the lieks of you go foolishly go complaining about aything that does not fit your pro xbox console war mentality.
