Would you mind point who said such a thing?

Just look back to the previous posts.

BTW "Is that hard to understand that the current image to ordinary people of the XOne is very positive?" if the current image is so positive why is it not selling even with deals, temporary price cuts, free games and everything else?

Globally over the entire console's life time?

It's definately possible if Microsoft doesn't take the right steps, but will it happen?  I don't think so.

I think Phill Spencer is going to stear Xbox back into a more prominant position where they can at least compete with Playstation 4.

I could see the end generation sales being something like:

Wii U: 25M

Xbox One: 80M

Playstation 4: 120M

Both vaild points that need to be takin into consideration. I believe XBone will have a strong holiday push in NA if they anounce a price cut around that time they could sell 1 to 1 maybe even 1.5 to 1.


How big a price cut is the issue, 50 wont do much.  Price partity wont be enough unless its with Halo5

Given current circumstances and realitys of the situation.  1-1 would be a hell of a victory for them. 


Price Parity would be enough to keep them ahead of being outsold 2:1 by playstation 4.

In the US, they would likely be winning most months at price pariy.



It probably will happen, PS4 is more than 2:1 this year.



You might want to add a question mark at the end of your title to stop it being misleading. As it stands, it reads like a statement of fact that would require a legitimate source.

Do you think it's posible?

Something like 10 mln vs. 5 mln units.


Of course.

The one drop the bomb with the biggest game of the year + pricedrop + others things and it's still behind the ps4.

Now it will only go lower and lower, week after week.

 

So yes, the ps4 can outsell the one by 2:1...but not before some months, and only before Halo 5.

no, you show us the "guys" that said it. plural.

Its a close call, but the PS4 is selling nearly at double the pace the X1 is. So, i suppose its possible.



@OP:

For short periods, possible and quite likely.
For long periods and lifetime, still possible but very unlikely.

It will for most of this year... especially the next two months before e3.
Everyone who was willing to buy an XB1 at a cheaper price with Titanfall already did. Price has mow increased and the hype has died down. PS4s are now available. MS has no exclusive games for a while. PS4 has MLB, Spider-man, Bound by Flame which will keep it number 1 in the US. Watchdogs will also sell more consoles on PS4, even if it is just 1, it will keep PS4 #1 in the US and probably selling 3 to 1 outside of the US.

Rough few months for MS until they decide to formalize their price drop
