    I think the 360 sales are strong enough to push at least 2m. If they did do over 4.4m then it's likely not by much.

    I don't get why they won't announce any figures. The last we heard from MS concerning the xbone was the "near 10m shipped" announcement. It's like they don't want us to know how it's doing compared to the ps4 but if it's doing better than the 360 then I don't see the problem letting everyone know the figures.

    I wish Microsoft would tell us how many units sold during the holiday season. We know they shipped over 6 million units, but how many were sold???

    They sold them to retailers, they are happy.
    No one knows how many actually sold, everybody estimates that, where as numbers out the door is an absolute (ish lol to the nearest .1 million). Anybody (read Sony) saying they have "sold through" will always say its an estimate according to their retail partners etc etc.

    Its only going to affect this 1/4 , next 1/4 whatever they sell, will be on top of what they have sold this 1/4, so you can guarantee that all 6.6 will be "gone".

    At the end of the day, sold through vs sold to retailers is at best going to be out by a small margin every single 1/4. But that does mean the 1/4 before is all sold now.

    So what does it really matter, long term numbers are accurate regardles of "sold through vs shipped" thing that people like to bandy around.

    I mean anyone would think people think that shipping 6 million and selling only 4 million means that 2 million somehow magically disappears, and then roll around to the next 1/4 and say the same dam thing.

    Sony and Nintendo can pretty much dial in on how much is sold to customers and be very close. Sony only produces X amount. X is shipped. X is in demand for the restock, X is shipped. Nintendo is in the same boat. Sales have stayed steady during the year and went up during the holidays.

    I totally get why MS won't announce a "sold to customers figure/estimate". It's impossible for them to be as accurate as Sony and Nintendo. Their production and shipments are all over the place. They're not steady like Sony's and Nintendo.

    Microsoft FY2015 Q3: 1.6M 360+XBO Shipped

    There's no telling what the split is. 360 is dying off and the xbone is $150 cheaper.

    1.3m-1.4m maybe

    Edit: It's selling better than the 360 during the same period. I was looking at the ps3 figures and I'm wondering how xbone is tracking against it?

    Well I'll be jiggered..where did that come from....


    “As the best-selling console in the U.S. in April, fans set record April sales and engagement for Xbox One last month,” Xbox marketing boss Mike Nichols said. “Xbox One console sales in the U.S. increased 63 percent in April 2015 compared to April 2014 and Xbox Live comparisons showed the number of active global users [Xbox One and Xbox 360] grew 24 percent. We are grateful to our fans for their passion and support and are looking forward to sharing more on the best game lineup in Xbox history at E3.”

    A rare win outside of holidays or the start of something?

    Looks like a unexpected April win for Xbox one. Good stuff. I can't wait or E-3.

    Odd since there wasn't a major game release or sales promotion going on. Perhaps it will continue.

    The answer was posted right above you. Xbone squeaked by on its short hairs.

    I am still waiting for a significant price drop. The Xbox One still doesn't interest much, but in time there will be several exclusive titles that I will want to play. Plus my obsession of owning every system each generation has continued with age.

    9 years and counting!

    Unless you want to warm up with some Halo 1 through 4 coop, sat on the fence until now, and/or jumped on a recent sale. Halo 5 *is* after all finally on the horizon.
