MS join xbox one + xbox 360 sales numbers.

#1 Edited by tormentos (18294 posts) -

Xbox Platform revenue increased $104 million or 14%, driven primarily by increased console revenue. We sold in 1.1 million consoles in the fourth quarter, as we drew down channel inventory, compared to 1.0 million consoles during the prior year.

MS joined xbox 360+ xbox one shipment for the 4th quarter,non separate report was issue,they pulled a Sony joining PS2 and PS3 sales.

This is epic since so many lemmings flamed sony for this and accuse sony of hiding sales under the PS2,now what lemmings.?

The xbox one still stranded like i suspected a few days ago,they barely shipped any units and still trying to sell the probably the 1 million units they had shipped but not sold in the retail channel,now is a good time to press the panic button.

See this is why $ony needs to drop out of the industry. MS would have never adopted these underhanded business practices if $ony had not done them first.

So Sony was "leading" the industry when they did the exact same thing last gen with PS3 and PS2? Or are you willing to admit they "decayed" using that same tactic? ;)

Nope. Doesn't seem to have broken 5m sold-through, yet. It's going flat. Very flat.

and Jesus Christ can we get an OP to change the thread title, this is going to spawn epic amounts of duplicate threads.

Pretty disgusting to see Sony's corruption rub off on great companies like MS.

Eh, the WiiU seems to be out-selling and outshipping the XBone for this quarter. So, if they keep this up, you won't have much longer to complain about it.

To add perspective to it all, MS actually shipped 1.2 Million XBones alone in the previous quarter. So, sell-through sales are slowing down rather dramatically in all reality.

If it's any consolation, the XBone is doing better at launch year than the original Xbox and the GameCube.

Only way to account for this is if non-UK Europe just pulled a Japan on XBox.

Ooh, ooh! Are we at the part of the thread where you remind us that Xbone could make a PS3-like market recovery despite it having nothing like an MGS4 level third party exclusive to keep people talking about it? Cuz, I LOVE story time! I am feeling tingly in anticipation ^_^

I have no idea what the heck that had to do with what I said but I have no idea what will happen by the end of the gen sales wise and since it has been less then a year no ones does.

As far as combining numbers why do you suddenly have a problem with it when you have been defending Sony doing it for all this time.

I wonder if those will still be available by the 1 year anniversary.

#34 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

Horrible numbers. No wonder they are combining XBone and 360 numbers LMAO. It seems sales fell off a cliff in Europe lol. WiiU outshipped them last quarter lol. LOL @ #XflopLastPlace. At this rate they'll be fighting for 2nd or last place with WiiU all gen.

"B...bu...bu...but it is teh 2nd fastest of all time!!!111". LOL

Because lemming flamed sony to hell and beyond for combining PS2 + PS3 numbers,so now where are those who use to flame sony to complain about how MS is doing the same.

Ahh, I think you misplaced me with the Cows. I'm not defending Sony or even talking about combining the numbers. Just what the numbers are. All I care about.

Are you really surprised by this, is anyone and if so...it's ironic as hell.

1. Companies will do anything to save face with investors, perception is reality. As you mentioned Sony before; there are many companies that have implemented such a tactic.

2. Fanboys are Fanboys regardless where they come from, they are the same with a different stamps on their butts.

It is not time to hit the panic button. Where they are after this upcoming holiday season is cause depending on the situation with sales. It's not like the sales are bad, they aren't but Sony is simply doing better. Microsoft royally screwed up the first 6 months of this thing (and even before hand) much like Sony botched the beginning of the Ps3.

This equating MS to Sony ends now.

1. While Xbox 360 was in the pilots seat last gen, they sold off and closed development studios as well as dedicated resources to Kinect-only. As a gamer, this should be important.

2. Sony has let go of Insomniacs iron-clad support. However, they gained Bungie this gen. Not exactly a fair trade.

3. Sony is a household name globally, Xbox made a lot of ground in Europe, but sold quite a bit over half of their 360s in the US. Exactly where and how is XBone going to stage a comeback?

4. Most importantly of any argument. Sony lost DMC/Final Fantasy/etc to multiplat last generation, but there are literally no third party megatons coming from Microsoft. At all. Zilch.

Yes. Consoles do come back from behind. The SNES did it against the Sega Genesis and the PS3 did it against the 360. However, the argument is being made in a vacuum irrespective of the realities that propelled those two systems. The XBone, as it stands currently, has NO such ammunition. E3 2015, the XBone will have to go absolutely ape-shit to convince me otherwise.

Who is saying it is a good thing? You should be praising MS for this as a good choice since you have defended Sony over it for so long. I personally wish they both did not but since Sony has been doing it for years MS might as well.

Microsoft's better than this. They shouldn't follow in the foot steps of Sony's terrible practices...

I guess console gaming really is going downhill :(

I really doubt WiiU outshipped them last quarter. Do you have any links for that? And it won't be a fight for second. The WiiU will be last assuredly.

Anyway, that's some Sony level BS MS pulled. Really pathetic. Just state your numbers honestly.

Every company should combine their numbers with each other's so no one knows what sold what. So the fanboys can actually play games instead of debate about them.

Just so we are clear, Microsoft shipped 100k units of Xbox One all quarter. That's Wii U levels of disastrously bad.

EDIT: I lied, even Wii U has never had a quarter this bad. In its worst quarter ever, Wii U shipped ~200,000 units worldwide, double what Microsoft just managed.
