      why should they? selling 2.000.000 in 18 days is fantastic and it proofs that if you want a PREMIUM ALL-IN-ONE PACKAGE $499 is a very good price. and well deserved.

        The kinect is what makes it stand out. You however, should go stand in the corner.

        You still speak of Kinect as though it’s optional like it was for the 360. It’s not.

      but sony did it in 2 days.

      stop seeing what you WANT to see and see the whole picture.

      sony sold 2 million units in like 2 days. they have been sold out pretty much world wide. the moment a store gets some in stock they are quickly sold. sony launched in all but 1 major market (japan) which is does OK in, but better compared to the other consoles. japan is about hand helds now, vita remote play might make it sell though

      MS sold 2 million units in 18 days but only officially launched in 13 countries, what you seem to ignore is MS launched in the markets they get the most marketshare.. xbone in those 13 countries will probably sell more then the rest of the world combined heck, the xbone in the US alone will probably sell more than the rest of the world combined.

        they sold 1 million the day they launched in NA and were sold out.

        they then launched in EU and sold a million there as well and are now sold out in the EU.

        they sold 99% of their stock on 2 different days that just happen to be 14 days apart.

        also vgchartz is terrible for a source.

      Microsoft scaled back their own launch by choice, it wasn’t a limitation imposed on them. They chose to go smaller and ignore several markets.

        Hopefully they have that Gaikai system set up for you by then so you can catch up.

        It’d be a real shame to miss all of Naughty Dog’s games from last gen, I’d say they’re the best developer in the world right now.

    I think many are surprised that it sold 2 million to begin with so fast.
    PS4 might be selling more currently but that doesn’t make this 2 million less impressive.

      1.2m is a little low. That said I do smell some M$ BS. I mean according to M$ windows 8 and surface were selling well until it got to the point they couldn’t BS anymore. I suspect they are rounding up allot to get to 2m.
