No. November/december = Nintendo.

You seem awfully sure. Don't forget Xbox One will get both Halo and COD in November and will be one of the most wanted xmas presents as well.

he is right...face it...only halo will boost xbone   !wii u has doubled its sales ,in 2013 nov-dec wii u was skyrocketed and in last two weeks of december,difference was so low... !ps.europe isnt so intersted in halo...xboxone is in danger

Sorry, I forgot he can read the future.

 

It hasn't happened yet, either one could do better than the other. One may be more likely to do well but that doesn't mean it is guarenteed.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

 If the 360 didn't do well that doesn't mean the one will fail.

The 360 hit 80 million, it did great. But just because the predecessor did good, it doesn't mean the next one will also. Look at the N64, Wii U, Sega Saturn, and PS3 (Not sales, but the huge early losses). But obviously no one can see into the future, so we'll just have to wait to see if the Xbox One did good overall (But IMO it will just be decentish).

Microsoft will market it well and with the right games it might do better. Sales will increase even if you guys think otherwise.

You just contradicted yourself...

I remember when the other side said kinect was going to fail and not sell.....it became the fastest selling device in history. So I believe the one will do good. Haters gonna hate.

I don't see why you think the Xbox One will do well because Kinect on the 360 did well. They had to not include Kinect 2.0 with every Xbox One with the $400 version because it was actually killing the console. In other words, Kinect was a fad.

Selling good but as soon as it ships in all those other countries then we shall see. Sony has that advantage of being in a lot more countries.


AGAIN with that silly argument!  Listen, if those countries were THAT important to the success of the Xbox One, they WOULD HAVE ALREADY LAUNCHED in those countries!  These countries that the XB1 are not currentlly in are responsible for less than TEN PERCENT of Xbox 360 sales!  To think that magically they will "save" the XB1 is foolish at best.

Yeah it won't make a huge impact. But if they can get 10% of their sales from those countries, like you say the 360 did, then it would be 10% better than before

People are doubting if the one can get to 8 million by December? Wow.


They are AVERAGING about 60,000 consoles/week this year...and 23 weeks remain in the year, so about 1.38 million if they keep doing as they have.  Lets assume that they have a REALLY good December, and sell an additional 500,000 units...that still puts them under 7 million.  Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if the numbers DROP significantly between now and then, however.


They are going to sell more than 500,000 units in December. To suggest otherwise well...


I said an ADDITIONAL 500,000 units.  Apparently your reading comprehension skills are as poor as your math.  And if you think Halo MCC is going to sell more than 500,000 well....

Moderated,

True...10% additional sales is better than nothing...but that means about 6,000 units extra per week.  And THAT is probably being generous right now...especially considering the image problems MS has globally (in general and with the XB1 specifically).

I advise you to see what the consoles sell in July/august and you will find out it is the worst time of the year to sell consoles, the consoles already see a sales bump in september and October and a huge one in November/december...  The XBO will release in september in a lot of new countries, has a lot of third party support and has some decent exclusive games that will bump up the sales aswell. 

The only kind of games that move consoles are really hyped ones, and/or masterpieces. Everything else will mostly sell to the current user-base (Every Wii U game before 3D World, for example). The only game that really fits the bill is Destiny and the Masterchief Collection. I don't really see Destiny moving much consoles though, since the PS4 version gets more attention (Like Watch Dogs, for example. But of course Destiny will move more Xbox One's than Watch Dogs did).

As for the Masterchief Collection, I'm not sure. It could be anywhere between Mario Kart 8 level system-seller to something like Titanfall.

My English and Maths are quite alright thank you very much. So you are saying the Xbox One will sell less than a million in December, right?



Not yet.

It's

4,904,595  (week ending 12 Jul 2014 1)

+ 57,774    (week ending 19 Jul 2014 2 3

I am saying it will be a bloody miracle if the Xbox One can do over 7 million before the end of the year...or didn't you read my prior posts before replying?  Reading comprehension AGAIN dude...
