Default 7 million units sold to date.

Wow.

That is insane when you think about it.

I figured with Titanfall release the Xbone would be catching up, but that's not the case:

PS4 is actually pulling away.

Sounds to me like they're both still buggy enough to annoy me.

That's not a massive deficit for Microsoft by any means. It took them over 2 years to move 10 million 360s, and I don't think anyone is calling that system a failure. 5 million Xbones in 6 months is not bad. Yes, only Xbox has offered a "killer" original intellectual property in Titanfall, but it's kind of meanigless when a lot of people are looking for the big next-gen debuts of the big series like Halo, or God of War, or just plain waiting for the first price drop to commit.

Long and short of it for me is that this feels like an even longer "getting to know you" phase for new consoles than any generation before.... which has allowed me to continue waiting beyond when I said I'd get mine. I may very well wait until there is NHL on the consoles before upgrading now.

I've seen the XB1 for $450 already in a couple of places so it's coming down. Still not buying it yet though.

Not to be off topic too long..lol... But Soul and Muscley, I bought my xbox one... Love it but wished I would have waited... I have two games Battlefield and fifa and both are good... but I would have been satisfied in waiting till MY GAMES come out in the summer and fall.. You know.. Madden, NHL, Fifa etc etc..lol.. I would wait until then..

Either way not upset with the buy just wished I held on to the 500, probably be 400 by the fall..

As far as playstation... My Step Father got one..lol... WHY I have no clue but he got one.. He even preordered and everything.. The guy is not a gamer so I have no clue what that was about...lol

Should be titled "Sony is winning the battle, but will they win the war"

Either way it's a great read:

MS showed with the xbox and followed up with the 360 they know what they are doing, the Xbone from day 1 left a sour taste in my mouth. I went back to Playstation and do not regret it, down the road I may pick up an Xbone but I don't see it happening for awhile.

My Kinnect fucking broke, I still haven't messed with all the step by step on xbox site to try and fix it. But I'm kinda ticked off if I have to send it out and be without it for 3-4 weeks. It just has no power, I tried replugging it but nothing.

Will try and trouble shoot it later as I just don't want to deal with it right now.

I had that too. Sent it and it took forever. I had to call because they had no clue what was going on and they had to escalate to higher managers. Given how Titanfall on 360 plays just like the One version I wish I had waited. Neither system has a killer game worth buying yet.
