And would be the fastest selling console of all time if not for the PS4 being the fastest? It's pathetic that some would even suggest the Xbox One is a failure for reasons just stated. Not to mention the Xbox One is a full $100 more expensive.
Don't see how any product that sells the second fastest ever with $100 increase over it's competition could ever be considered a failure? Cows seem to forget just a few short years ago how badly the PS3 sold it's first few years on the market at a higher price point. Not to mention Xbox One is selling way faster then PS3 ever did with that same $100 more price point.
Also MS dropping price quickly has always been in the plans. Michael Patcher was even saying this back in early fall that he expected MS to slash the cost in early 2014 because MS wanted to get a few months of profit in the green then slash the cost in early 2014 to ramp up sales numbers moving forward.
This is a long long console race and Xbox One is a blistering success sales wise it just so happens that a system a full $100 cheaper has better sales go figure?
Duh math don't lie $100 cheaper better sales kindergarten math right here. Once the cost of the Xbox One matches PS4 world wide the Xbox One will start steam rolling.
By the way before you go and say bu bu bu Michael Patcher never gets anything right. He does at least know common business ethics and marketing cost common sense.
