Forums - Microsoft Discussion - going with that 17k, Xbox Series X/S will have the biggest launch ever

for the xbox brand
that 17k implies the production has switched over towards next gen fully
Rather simple logic, every producktiefactor  will be used for those consoles and where general console launches are severely supply constraint this might be the first time that won't be an issue which plagued the previous generations.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Can you be a little more clear?



What is that 17k thing?

I think you're reading something into those numbers that isn't there. Slow moving XBones does not equal shitloads of XSX/S production. In fact, we can't extrapolate anything at all about XSX/S from that.

Yeah, makes sense that the reason for the poor NPD is that MS has switched most of their production lines over to making Series S and Series X now. XB1 is out of stock most everywhere in the US right now, but it's clearly not out of stock due to selling out due to high demand, it's clearly sold out due to low stock, and the only reason why the stock would be this low right now is if production was greatly reduced.

I mean we could get simething from that 17k. Nothing possitive. Just means what it has happened for a while now. Low interest in the xbox family is droping even more. Such means there could be low interest in the series x coming up. 

All speculation of course. But is more likely than it meaning that the Xbox is selling low now because of low stock.

I think you are being serious. But I'm not sure, highly doubt it thou.

I think you can definitely infer something from it. Xbox One has been out of stock on almost every online retailer since sometime in June, after having a very strong April and May due to covid lockdown increasing game sales. The fact that that Xbox One has been sold out for 2 months, clearly due to low stock rather than tremendously high demand, clearly means that XB1 production was stopped or slowed around about late May or June. And what reportedly started in late May? Xbox Series S and X production. It definitely seems like MS has converted most of their XB1 S production lines over to Series S now and all of their XB1 X production lines over to Series X now (XB1 X is officially discontinued). 



More like weakest launch ever.
