Already updated. Its only an estimate: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/xbox-one-sales-put-at-18-million-update/1100-6439045/

 

Huge grain of salt here. Seems to be far too low with the other figures we've gotten.

 

Yep. Which anyone should have known. 

 

People need to stop jumping on the hate xbox train and try to make this as great news for Playstation. But I believe it is a way to generate click-bait, and the comments section already proves itself.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

People are making definitive statements based on nothing.  Perfectly fine to point that out and wonder why.

It isn't perfectly fine to call people out, no matter if it's based on fact or not. That's not the same as debating an argument. I shouldn't have to tell you the difference.

How about misleading thread titles?

It should say "xbox one has sold 18 million units worldwide, eSports CEO guesses (based on previous reveals based on guesses)"

The clarification has shown this isnt a "reveal", it is a guess based on previous guesses.

Lets not let the facts get in the way of a bait title though huh?



I'm not really here!

I would not be surprised its over tracked here.



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Point me in the direction of a misleading thread title and we can go from there. That title reads exactly like its source and the OP has been updated.

Its just another number in the pool of third party estimates.

Unless Microsoft steps up and release actual real life numbers intead of the sillyness of their pasts PR's, we can all speculate till the end.

This is one of the few times where nobodys predictions are wrong because nobody knows anything for sure.

Hell, i could say that the Xbox One have sold 15m, kowenicki or you could say that it has sold 35m, whos right? Whos wrong?

Why should be "hoping" that the Xbox One is under 20m?

Those who see are often looking at their own reflection.

I can already see that this isn't going to go far. I could hand out moderation(s), but to spare that, I'll just lock this one up.
