Re: But Xboxes are selling very well
XB1s are doing fine, in fact pretty well
However, I expect they (XB1's) would be selling a hell of a lot better if MS had paid more attention to the real world and peer groups!
Most of my son's friends have in the past year had their Wii's upgraded to Xbox 360's by their parents, because XB360's and games are readily obtainable at favourable prices in the used market. Given XB1 is for most purposes totally incompatible with XB360, and that applies to both console-based and online gaming environments; why would I buy an XB1?
In fact once we make the decision to either not buy or replace the XB360, there is little to hinder us in evaluating the PS4, XB1 or wait until Nintendo unveil their new console... (Aside: Steam hasn't yet made it into the world of pre-teenage boys wanting to play FIFA and hence doesn't get mentioned.)
