commented on If Xbox One can’t outsell PS4 this holiday season, it probably never will in reply to Cueil
Cueil said:I wouldn't say that...Microsoft's manufacturing price will drop much faster then the PS4... eventually the X1 will be cheaper and then, at least in...Maybe so, but the limitations from the use of DDR3 memory will also become more apparent as this new console generation moves forward. It doesn't mean that the Xbox won't sell well. Look at the Wii. It just means the better games will be on the stronger console.
It doesn't help that the Yen is so weak against the dollar, which is weak against the Euro. It makes the cost of business much more expensive and profits much harder to achieve.
Hmmm... $499 for a Xbox One with an achievement and sticker or $450 for a Xbox One with Titanfall and a year of Live. How about neither.
It had to happen eventually. I own all three PS3 offerings. Really good titles. The narration tied to the gameplay in Thomas was Alone is awesome!

GunGriffin said:Um Xbox one is already crushing 360 in sales in the US, they will announce it at E3... Trust me on that...According to Microsoft, they sold 2.29 times more Xbox Ones in the U.S. than they did 360s in the first three months. However, in the third month of the 360s life, they sold 250,000 consoles. This past January they sold almost half that, so they're experiencing quite a drop off in sales. Why else would they bundle a $60 game here in the U.S. for the same price as a launch console (way to reward the early adopters!)? Why else would they drop the price AND bundle a game in the U.K.? Microsoft is clearly having issues and not hitting internal numbers.
