    Probably for good reason, although I think 5 million is a little low in the estimates.

    This would be the best case scenario for MS.

    I had to laugh when I was in Akihabara yesterday. This one store had Xbone displays all over and it said things like "I can try it here"

    I said "Yeah. You can try it all you want, because no one is buying it."

    Yep. The author emphasizes this in the forum conversation as well.

    Also I find it really cute you have a floor estimate for PS4 and ceiling estimate for Xbox One on your graph, in an attempt to try to make sales look closer than they are.

    Just to address that specific point, I did my estimating assumptions that way just to show that EVEN IF you are as optimistic as possible to the XB1 and as pessimistic as possible about the PS4, Sony STILL has a sizable lead. It was not an effort to make things look closer, and I believe I was very clear about this in the story.

    that's just the thing, it's not possible. there's no way that PS4 has sold or especially shipped in more than 3 months when it has consistently sold about a million every month (other than holiday months) and there's no reason to compare sold to shipped because that's the best we know about the X1 sales.

    that data doesn't make sense. there's no indication of that in any way. if anything, Destiny gave PS4 a big boost.
