"We've never seen a console sell that many units."

Xbox boss Phil Spencer has revealed that Microsoft's original goal, at the time when Don Mattrick was running the Xbox division, was for the Xbox One brand to sell 200 million consoles.


Microsoft going into the next-gen console war, thought they could sell 200 million consoles, which of course most likely was based on the big success they had with their Xbox 360 over the PlayStation 3, and they never thought Sony would comeback full force with their PS4, but now thanks to an recent interview by Phil Spencer, we get rare insight in how Microsoft was planning on reaching this big goal, of outselling the world famous PlayStation 2 console by 50 million units, over the lifetime of sales of their new Xbox One design.

Customers are going mad for the Xbox One S, with its built-in 4K Blu-Ray Player, and Slimmer Size!

Xbox has stormed the UK console market following the launch of new Xbox One S models. The release of the firm's new slim 500GB and 1TB SKUs saw Xbox One sales rise 989 per cent week-on-week.


Things are no longer rosy for the PlayStation 4 in the land of UK, because since the release of the Xbox One S console over there, it has outsold the PS4 by 360%, forcing UK retailers to lower the price of the original PS4 (non-slim model) to only £149 in an effort to clear out stock.

The Nintendo NX is set to arrive in 2017, and the latest rumors point to the company next discussing it at one of its special Nintendo Direct events. In the meantime? The company doesn't want to talk about it.


Big 'N' is being a big bully regarding NX, if you want to discuss it they cut you off from all press and coverage and interviews, just like 'Fight Club', the movie, you know it exists, but the first rule is you can't discuss it, but at least one interview'er was able to get it out of the big bad bullies, that when Nintendo is ready to show the world what NX is all about they will be doing it as usual like been predicted before by 'Nintendo Direct', but sadly no hints on when that will occur, but normally they inform the press within 24 to 48 hours before the...

PS4 might have outsold XB1, many times over, but when it comes down to using the console, Xbots are winning! :)

All they asked was one simple question after obtaining their console ownership and age information: “Roughly how many hours do you spend playing on games consoles during a typical day? -- In the end, good old XBOX LOVE won over all the other consoles! :)

Xbox One A Very Distant Third

While the PlayStation 4 is completely crushing the Wii U in most regions, that has not been the case in Japan. The Wii U had actually been managing to be the top selling current-generation home console in the region for a while, though now it has finally been overtaken by the PS4.


Japan is finally becoming the land of Sony again, for years Nintendo was the king, but with the launch of the PS4, it has quickly regain the throne, and of course Microsoft is still busy sweeping the floors in the mailroom, wondering if they will ever move up the ladder.
