Xbox :mj: Lemmings :lawl:

Xbox1 is up 16% and still came in last.  That shows you how HORRIBLE it performed in 2017. 

 

DynamiteCop expected Xbox1 to be #2 and have the highest share.   He expects this every month :rofl:

But teh X!

Dino and Jonb seriously thought that the X would change things. :D 

 

As if the average consumer gives a shit about graphics... If that was the case the Switch wouldn't be number 1 and the PS4 Pro model would have totally cannibalized the base model sales but it's not the case at all, quite the opposite. The PS2 wouldn't have destroyed the competition and the Wii would have never been a super hot trendy phenomenon when it came out.

 

It's like those Lemmings started gaming yesterday. but bu native 4K! Yeah, that will really reel them in!

Graphics are an advantage when it doesn't affect price or delay the release of a system. Like PS4. If you're over pricing or delaying a system for graphics that's not an achievement.

The X could have changed things if it had exclusive killer apps.   All that power and not one game built from the ground up for it.   

 

10 months post launch and not a single killer app for X. 

 

That's like purchasing a Ferrari but you keep it parked in the garage.  Yea it looks nice, but you're not actually utilizing the car's power.

Even top 3 software are all Nintendo. Damn Switch is dominating sales charts in Japan, US, and even some EU markets like France and Spain.

The Pro doesn't have an exclusive games either and it's doing just fine. These mid gen refresh are meant as an option.

 

The problem is MS were banking way too hard on something that was never going to change Xbox's place in the industry. That should have been obvious watching the Pro not overselling the base model.
