Lol, this place is as far from a political forum as one can get. My issues isn't with the facts of sales data. That's irrefutable. My discussion begins at the debate that the system war is already over and there is no hope for the One. That's my discussion. The One has sold very well if looked upon based on the 360's launch.
Being far more expensive and in far less territories than its competitor. But the PS is having monster sales and undeniably is ahead worldwide. No argument there irregardless of my own personal opinion of the system. Strong sales are facts. I recall the 360 bashing the PS3's head in for years and how SW was then, so its no different now with the PS4 laying the smack down, lol :)
The original xbox sold more than the xbox 360 in its first 4 months yet the 360 sold 3 times more,the problem with the 360 is simple it was very supply constrained because of yield issues and flow of units didn't improve until April or more of 2006,so is easy to beat the 360 numbers.
Oh Please $100 more,and since late February is been sold with a free copy of its hottest and most hyped game,worse since March 21 retailers like walmart had been selling it for $449 with Titanfall which is $10 less than a PS4 with a game.
Have you wonder why MS instead of letting those xbox one collecting dust in retailers storerooms,they didn't ship them to the so call countries that were left out.?
Is simple those countries will not add anything significant to MS,in fact outside UK the xbox one on EU is been outsold like 4 to 1 by the PS4,and those were MS best markets,so the worse ones they will sell even less.
Quite a psycic you are there :) Its 5 months into this thing and nothing is absolutely for certain. To say otherwise is pretty naive. MS and Sony both sold 80+ million last gen, and the PS4 is at 7+ and the One at 4+. That's a shitton of people who are waiting to buy their console. Both will enjoy price cuts and sell very well. MS needs a price cut, while Sony if they get undercut can match it. But price and games sells systems, and the One will get a price cut and games. There's time to turn this around for certain. That's not a guarantee. But to say who will sell what, where, for certain, when it isn't even released there yet doesn't make sense to me.
As for those systems not sent to countries that the One hasn't released in yet, the One does a hell of a lot more than gaming and certain things aren't perfected or work in those regions yet. Better to release a product when you know its ready And then bust your ass to convince people its good then sell it now when its broken or vastly unfinished.
