Forums - Sales Discussion - Will Microsoft ever report Xbox One console sales?

 

Will they?

Yes 9 14.52%
 
No 53 85.48%
 
Total:62

Console sales doesn't matter that much anymore. Also for stockholders it doesn't matter because the money comes partly from software but a large portion from subscriptions. I would not be surprised if sony makes more money from PS plus/now in one year than they do with console sales profits.

It isn't a good look when the Xbox One is apparently being beat by the Xbox 360.



 

 

You'll need to pray Cortana much more than that to hope so.



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

That depends when the next gen will start. If in 2020, then it should. In 17 months, Switch is already halfway through XBO sales. In 2017 Switch/XBO ratio was 1.7. In 2018 (so far) is 2.25 and I don't think that this trend will change anytime soon, if ever.

XBOX is loosing to PS4 but still it's not a Loss.. it's just that PS4 is more popular.

I think XBOX will easily hit 60-70 milions while PS4 will hit 100

Being behind doesn't mean = looser. 60-70 mil means being relevant.

60M is very hard for xbox (close to impossible), and 70M is an impossible number. On the other side, ps4 got great chances of surpassing 120M, so yeah, ps4 gonna be over 2:1 on xbox.

Xbox will be luck to cross 55M.

Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

I can't agree wit that. Of course console sales still matter....more consoles means more more customers to buy PS plus/now or Gold subscriptions along with more software. So yeah they definitely matter.

Exactly. 

@ OP 

Not going to happen. Not only is the PS4 selling more than twice they are, but the Switch will be passing them eventually. Not a good look. 



No, they won't. Unit sales are seen as a PR information and why would anyone want to regularly release bad PR if they didn't have to? So they focus on active player counts, or total engagements, etc... Things that are harder to quickly denote as good or bad from a PR standpoint. Makes it easier for MS to control the narrative about the console's success.

Maybe some Catholic MS execs told them to their father confessors, but we'll never know!

So we'll have to wait till the father is on his deathbed to know the numbers?



Sure they will stop when Switch will overtake them.
