slightly less dead but still dead if you ask me

I'm sure MS doesn't mind being ''dead'' meanwhile selling out asap everything it ships to the country.

I can't think of any ''dead'' scenario better than this.

Cracks me up each time.

Phil Spencer Sarah Bond can do it. We gettin weird ass niche games, we can get the number.. 3? highest selling Japanese franchise too. 

I put her name in google and I think it gave me someone else... who is this lady you speak of? :o

Also OT: Sure it's doing much worse than the X360 in the same lifespan, but compared to the XBO, yeeeeaaaah it's doing great lol. I'm curious to see if it'll pass the original XBOX and/or pass 1m lifetime, but even if it doesn't I imagine Microsoft will be happy that they've gained more ground in Japan after everything they lost coming from X360 to XBO.

I wonder what Game Pass subscriptions look like over there, since they don't have many options at retail, might as well jump into GP lol... that's my plan when I get my hands on a Series S anyway.

You may be trolling, but I'll bite anyway. Google "sarah bond xbox" and you'll find her.

I must say I'm a little offended you think I'm trolling (Also don't do that in the future, to anyone really), this is who I got originally; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Bond

Sorry to offend! This is the internet after all....

I assumed everyone around these parts knew of Sarah, but maybe I'm in more of an XBox bubble than I thought.  But then I saw the same thing when I googled simply "sarah bond" so I gave you the benefit of the doubt.

You're offended???? I think you owe Kenjab an apology for pretending to do an half ass google search and calling him out. This is also a Microsoft discussion thread so Kenjab is right everyone knows Sarah bond. 

This is what you got:

Sarah Emily Bond is a Professor of History at the University of Iowa. Her research focuses on late Roman history, epigraphy, law, topography, GIS, and Digital Humanities. Wikipedia 

And you though to yourself well obviously this Kenjab dude doesn't know what he's talk about and calling him out for using a random person name. If you would of actually google her you would of got:

Sarah Bond

  3rd degree connection3rd
Corporate Vice President | Xbox

It's almost like you don't know what a misunderstanding is, maybe get that stick from up your butt and realise that not everyone knows every "important" person in the videogames industry? I never once called Kenjab out, I was making a comment based on the fact that I ended up with someone different, something he can also attest to as he tried it himself.

Also "This is also a Microsoft discussion thread so Kenjab is right everyone knows Sarah bond." What does the fact that it's a Microsoft discussion have to do with who knows a person? Does that mean if I randomly post in a Nintendo thread it automatically means I know everyone at Nintendo? I don't even know everyone at Sony for that matter and I run a nation thread... your logic is ridiculously flawed. 

Next time don't come at someone guns blazing like that, it just makes you look desperate to start an argument that doesn't need to be had. I'd advise dropping it here before any further action happens.



Considering PS5 sold 1M and only 500k SW with big possibility of scalpers and resellers/exporters making most of the HW purchase I would suspect of very similar situation for Xbox Series as well. The cool data from Japan is that Series X is about 2/3 of the sales and S is 1/3.

Whoa man, easy now. This was just a misunderstanding. Perhaps referring to bristow's post as a troll was too harsh, something like sarcastic or tongue-in-cheek would have been more appropriate.

And btw, I also googled "jim ryan" and found numerous lawyers and politicians listed and had to sift through to find the one who works for Sony.  Some names are just more common than you think.
