I think the console will be fine in the long run, no bomba here and I think we can totally close the door on CBOAT and YIELD issues

Some solid numbers coming out of the global Xbox One launch last month:

2 Million Consoles sold through in 13-markets in the first 18-days

Over 83 million hours in games, TV, and apps on Xbox One since the system launched

Since MS is selling at a higher price point ($500) thats 1 billion in sales from 13 countries. Thats good sales. For Sony to make the 1 bill mark, they need to move 2.5 mill units. I am surprised with all the crap from e3, the endless crap over the internet that the X1 is holding up its own. Maybe it has a lot to do with word of mouth. I love my X1, and I don't want to go back tot he old way of navigating from TV- to app-- to Game-- to Tv. The X1 makes it seamless. The people have gotten the X1 could be pushing sales by speaking highly of it to friends
